“ TomTom ONE United Kingdom & Ireland Assist - GPS receiver - automotive „
I love this machine and its my constant companion.
I purchased this over a year ago from teco, where it was on special ofer and apart from some minor teething troubles, i havent had a problem.
When I first purchased it, i had to set my home, which was abit difficult as it showed my house being in a field, but once i overcome that obstical it understood where I was.
The first post code I put in was asda, why you may ask? well i wanted to know the best ( quickest) route, the one i`d been driving was different and i`ve now changed to "toms" route.
I was going to southampton on holidays, so i upgraded my "tom" which was easy to do via the usb cable. Plugged into my laptop and off we went.
When I got to the motorway there was an accident so i choose alternative, tom took me off motorway and onto next junction. At next junction, i spied traffic had stopped, so i pressed alternative and we were off again, what joy, didnt know where i was but tom did, at the next junction, the traffic had still stopped, so tom alternative, off to next junction. We re joinrd motorway here, brilliant, we then heard on news 15 mile tail back. And we avoided it.
There was a bit of difficulty on the new motorway we joined, it told us to get off at junction which we did and then it told us to get back on, so we had a lauh about it but remembered on the way back not to leave motorway.
We found it didnt like service stations and often it would tell you to turn around and go back. But we realised, that if you continued on it would pick a different route.
The bit I like about tom tom is you might not know where you are, but your not lost, you just dont know where your going.
I actually got the sound turned off at the moment and look at the screen, because its irratating on motorways by keep saying at the next junction go straight on.
This lovely little machine saves the need for "are we there Yet" because it tells you how far you have left to go and how long it will take and it constantly change switches when you have hold ups or you dawdle along
I dont leave home without mine and I love the function when your returning home, just press one button and off you go.
I also found it useful when i went to london, i carried it in my bag, having set the hotel on it and when we`d done a bit of shopping, sightseeing I pressed hotel and found it so easily
We also use it for the caravan club and the advantage being, some of these sights are off the beaten track, but they give you co ordinates which you can put into tom easily and tom takes you to the door
my other half bought me my Tom Tom sat nav as i started to go further a field mainly for work training courses visits etc. found it to be very easy to use and install. though sometimes can be a little confusing as when to take a turn off or confusing when on a new road that tom tom doesn't recognize. the voices that come as standard can be a little annoying. Great for finding railway stations and petrol stations places that you may need to find while on your journey, Was disappointing that it costs to upgrade the maps witch has to be done quite regular should be cheaper to upgrade Advantages ,does save time and stress being able to re route when avoiding traffic . Recently purchased a voice pack to use celebrity voices which adds a little humour too, overall i would be lost more often without my little Tom Tom
