Advantages: price, ease of use
Disadvantages: small screen
The tomtom one is one of the cheapest in the tomtom range and is a really stripped down model omitting many of the extras that feature on the more expensive models. What it does give you however is all the features at your fingertips in an easy to use and pleasant to navigate user interface.
At the heart of the tomtom one is the colourful menu screen. All of the options such as find address and points of interest near you are clearly displayed and easily accessed using the touch screen. Navigating to an address is a breeze, simply input the postcode and the house number and the tomtom one pilots you to your destination using the quickest route possible. This is really usefull nowadays with the increase in fuel prices, no more driving up and down streets looking for your turn off, simply follow the visual and voice commands and you save fuel money too!
The screen on the unit is on the small size compared to some other satnavs and this does make inputtting postcodes tricky as if you have big fingers like me then you can accidently press the wrong letter. Its also worth noting that you should ensure you update the map software through the tomtom website every so often otherewise you can find yourself going down roads that the satnav does not recognise and getting lost.
All in all this does all that you would want a basic satnav to do and at a very reasonable price, just be careful of that small screen!
Summary: does the job with minimum of fuss
