Pros Great Price, simple, easy, and Works
Cons Expensive Accessories and Add-ons
Summary This unit just came out and I just finished trying it out for the first time. It works great. For whatever reason, TomTom lowered their price from $299 for the previous version. That was the reason for my selecting this GPS. In my opinion, the other manufacturers are way over-priced.
This unit has everything that I wanted:
-turn-by-turn voice directions
-quick reliable navigation
-clear up to date maps
No this unit does not have bluetooth or an SD card slot. But, I personally don't need it. It comes with a mini USB connector that you connect to your computer. When the GPS is recognized, this triggers the desktop companion software to automatically download to your computer from the internet. The unit has a little over a gig of onboard storage for the us/canada maps and then about 100MB for add-on stuff (voices, map colors). I like the fact that it includes map share technology and a port for attaching a traffic antenna that works over FM. But, be aware the antenna is an extra $125 plus a subscription fee (I think).
Other than that, no complaints. It does what it says it can on the box and website. It basically operates itself once you input the destination. It is also very thin to fit easily in your pocket.
I thought the screen might be small, but in reality, it is plenty big enough. If it was any bigger, I feel like it might impede your view when mounted on the windshield or be too big for your pocket.
Pros Fast when powers on and fast finding locations, accurate positioning, can set-up the keyboard as QWERTY = much easier to type street names, good display and small form factor.
Cons Doesn't have text to speech feature
Summary Worked right from the box. Just push the ON button and follow instructions on the sreen. You do not need to read long manuals to get started. It is very basic and reliable GPS unit without the bells and whistles that most people would not use anyway. Has even traffic information feature, but need special antena.
Pros Small size, quick, has all essentials, LE version has SD card slot, nice screen, excellent price.
Cons no included ac adapter , USB power is located on bottom of unit so cant rest on dash, and box was pain to open.
Summary I purchased the One LE, not the 3rd edition. Only difference between the two is the LE has an SD card expansion slot in case you want to add future maps (comes with US, Canada, and Guam). The LE is at a certain popular store for $149 now, or you can door bust Friday and save $30 (not worth the wait in my opinion) and get it for $119. If you are doing your research like I did forever, go with the LE in the event you may want that SD slot. I was also looking at the Nuvi 260 and Magellan 3100 and 4040, but I just wanted the basics. The TomTom One has that and then a lot more (traffic updates free trial, buddy finder to locate accepted buddies/family on map in real time, weather, and more). If you're looking for a great simple GPS unit, and don't need it to play MP3's or whatever, the One LE is an excellent choice. I researched everything out there, 20+ units (Navigon, Magellan, Garmin, TomTom, and MIO), and I compared features and pricing. If you're looking for a great value buy that really has everything you need, I'd go with the One LE or 3rd Edition.
Pros Easy to use, very accurate. I live in a rural area and the map had a just completed highway bypass.
Cons I could not find anything that I would consider a negative.
Summary Used it yesterday for a 250 mile trip. There was many different highways to my location, multiple turns. This was a very enjoyable trip with very accurate map.
Pros Great Price. Works Well.
Cons None so far.
Summary I bought the Tom Tom One Limited Edition at Best Buy for $249.
Product works very well, no problems at all. Very easy to use and to get started with. It will take a bit of time for the unit to pick up it's first satellite signal - have some patience.
Based on the first two weeks of ownership, I would recommend this product.
