TomTom One v4 review


TomTom's no-frills sat-nav device offers all you'll ever need, but it doesn't come cheap

Good route mapping ; Nice interface ; Solid build ; Nice caddy

No lane guidance ; Speed cameras subscription only

A fantastic design and great software make this a very appealing sat-nav for the entry user. It's just a shame the extra features are subscription based

TomTom ONE (4th Edition)


Slimline design, ease of use, EasyPort mount, TomTom HOME software, Map Share, Help Me! safety menu

No included AC adapter

The latest edition ONE features an even smaller design and an EasyPort mount, and supports TomTom's Map Share feature. The ONE continues to set the standard for other GPS units to strive for.

TomTom One V4 Europe 22


With sat-nav becoming a commodity, can premium bands like TomTom compete at the cheap end of the market?

And the One is as easy to use as TomToms have always been. The most important options always seem a click or two away, the screen is responsive and address entry sensibly easy. The One has a very usable touch screen keyboard and there are also options...

TomTom One Regional review


TomTom's inexpensive One is as easy to use as its more expensive relation. The huge buttons on the home screen are easy for even clumsy fingers to press, and the software runs quickly with almost no delays.

TomTom One (4th generation) Review - GPS


tomtom one (4th generation) review: Both the One and XL are great GPS units: compact, correctable, good looking and easy to use. At AU$349 we'd pick the narrow screen One every time though.

The diet has made it slim and sexy, Easy-to-use interface, Make and share map corrections, Folds up compactly, Better value than the widescreen XL

No Bluetooth hands-free, Routing engine addicted to main roads

Both the One and XL are great GPS units: compact, correctable, good looking and easy to use. At RRP we'd pick the narrow screen One every time though.

The latest TomTom One may be one of the smallest satnavs on the market, but it's also one of the most popular. Find out if it's for you in our full breakdown below.

TomTom One (4th generation)


I've used this device (TomTom One 3rd Edition) for about 4 month. It works very good! Not great, but very good. Small size but screen size has enough size to display all necessary information in friendly and usefull way. User has all information that...

Compact design ; Very user friendly and intuition interface ; Quite good mounting system ; CHEAP

Some times could lost your position - Placed you out of a road and suggest to return to a road :) ; Can not record your oun route

TomTom One (4th generation)


I had the previous model and I was very disappointed with the sound and the internal SD card. Even worse the fact that it takes longer to find the satellites, irrespective if I download the update from Tomtom home. Support is limited to emails only....

mount ; size

No removable SD card means you cannot put anything bigger than 1 Gig ; Speaker sound is poor in comparison to the previous model ; Takes longer to get the satellites than the prev model

The mount is stupidly designed but you do realize there is a lock which you have to lock the suction cap in place...... If you lock it right it doesnt fall off no matter what Also if you search by the main city instead of a suburb, all the street...

The mount is stupidly designed but you do realize there is a lock which you have to lock the suction cap in place...... If you lock it right it doesnt fall off no matter what

Large menu buttons ; fun voices ; Small screen

Mounts does not hold to the windscreen ; spoken street names doesnt sound real ; Map share a waste of time
