Sucks! Never getting a tom tom again!


Nothing beneficial that i got from it

Takes an extremely long time to put in address, scratched up within the 1st 2 month we had it, has gotten me lost numerous times

Consumer review by:

Poor Quality-


Poor quality. I would not recommend to anyone. Is that the life span for a $160 Navigation system? I will have to purchase another system this week but will purchase another brand.

Easy to read

Not dependable. Sometimes it takes 10-20 minutes to get GPS signal. It also freezes frequently. Just stopped working totally yesterday. Only had 19 months. This is my second TomTom navigation system. The first system lasted 2 years

Consumer review by:

Not real happy


If you don't know where your going and your only concern is to get from point A to point B. This one is good for you. If you want the best route from point A to point B this is not for you. I just don't have a lot of confidence in this product taking...

I thought it was easy to use

I too had trouble with addresses. It tells me I live at the end of my street. I also was using it to look for properties for sale. I had one address that was on a Loop. It took me to the wrong end of the Loop

Love it / Hate it


I love this GPS when it works, but it fails way too often. I put the car in the garage and turn it off. Next morning, I turn it back on an it's unable to find a GPS signal. Service desk is very helpful, but only open until 7:00et, so be prepared to...

Great product at a great price. Routes and maps are accurate, mapshare keeps them that way. Recalculate is fast; instructions are clear

Unit locks up, and cannot find GPS. Not all the time, but definitely the days you need to count on it. 7 service calls and 2 RMAs in the first year

Consumer review by:

Ain't too bad. Well worth the low price.


Worth the money, but for bare-bones gps consider the One 125 for similar operation at a reduced cost. I have only seen one other inexpensive gps system (Garmin) and the Tomtom is a smoother choice.

Does well enough to navigate you to most locations. Great time - distance calculations. Better than a map any old day. POI (point of interest) is good enough for me

I downloaded some of the voices and other interesting options, but this caused me great problems. I deleted these items and I'm good now. For anyone not interested in the RDS - TMS option, purchase the Tomtom One 125 and save yourself a few bucks

Consumer review by:

The best, and the easiest to use. awsome product.


Easy to use, really like the unit letting me know by speech where to turn, day and night screens different voices, excellent price, everyone should own this product

Little better information in the owners manual, but you can go to the website if you have the internet. Other then that nothing else

This product was great, while it worked


This product would be just ducky if it worked! I used it 2 or 3 times without problems (although it couldn't find the huge Cherry Valley Lodge in Newark, OH). Based on my experience, and what I have read from others, it goes into "safe mode" and...

Easy to use, clear screen and voice directions

It just kicked off one day (during a long trip to the Smoky Mts. Thank God we had an atlas) I've been unable to turn it on since. I've ensured it was charged, I've attempted the reset. Nothing works. I also had no luck with technical support
