Tomtom One New Edition

I've Owned my Tomtom One unit for a little over a week now.

Apart from one small issue, when I somehow lost all of the custom POI's that I had entered, I have to say I am very happy with it.

The unit is very compact. It will easily slip into a jacket or trouser pocket without causing a limp!

At 3.5" the colour touchscreen is clear and bright, making data entry & navigation nice & easy.

There are a couple of small issues:
  1. The unit ships with a1 gig SD card & the maps for USA along with POI's & voices leaves a whopping 7.5mb free. Not really a lot of space for your own stuff. My first recommendation would be to get yourself a 2gb card and keep the original 1gb somewhere safe as a backup.
  2. Although effective, the windshield mount is small and not very flexible. My only option using it was to place it at the top of the windshield next to the rearvieaw mirror. Placing it any lower meant that it was out of reach. I was hoping that RAM Mounts had a cradle, but there isn't one available yet.
More soon!
