TomTom One 3rd Edition
Advantages: Easy to Use. Good Value for Money. Comes with car charges, dash mount etc.
Disadvantages: Doesn't do all that extra stuff you dont really need and will probably never use.
The TomTom One is one of the more basic Sat Nav systems available. That's not to say it isn't good, because it really is, it just doesn't do all the extra's that some of the others do.
If you're looking for a Sat Nav that doubles as a bluetooth handsfree kit, or that stores all your music and films, or that has a massive widescreen then this is not for you. However, if you want an easy to use, affordable Sat Nav that will get you from A to B with the minimum amount of hassle then I really would recommend it.
The only real drawbacks to the One that I have experienced are that it occassionally takes a while to lock on to a satellite signal, and that the battery life is less than stellar - its not going to run out during an average journey, but will need regular recharching.
These minor drawbacks are more than offset by the benefits. For a relatively inexpensive system, the mapping software, voice selection and peripherals in the box are outstanding - it comes with everything you'll likely need. Features such as speed camera locations are also extremely welcome.
There is a Great Britain only version of this TomTom available, if you wish to save a few pounds, but having recently driven in France and Spain I would have to say that this unit seems to represent better value for money - it was absolutely flawless.
Overall, I would strongly recommend this as a basic Sat Nav system. However, if you're also going to want to have a handsfree unit in your car, there are better combined options.
Summary: An outstanding basic Sat Nav system
