TomTom ONE 3rd Edition
It can be hard to match the bang for your buck you get with the TomTom ONE 3rd Edition. Even on this entry level model you get TomTom’s MapShare feature– one of the biggest innovations in GPS technologies recently. Find an error on the map? Correct or report it though MapShare and download changes from other users. Thinking you might want to connect a live traffic reporting receiver someday? An optional accessory is available to add live traffic information.
The small size and small cost might make you think about carrying this GPS along while walking in a city– but be careful as the battery life isn’t quite as good as other models in this class and there is no “hold” switch to prevent accidental touch screen input, both features found on the similar Garmin Nuvi 200. Still, with MapShare, a ‘Help Me!’ menu, and maps of the USA & Canada, the ONE 3rd Edition is a great pick for a first auto GPS.
