    Gone to the dark side

    After about 16 months with my ONE, on an impulse, I bought a Garmin nuvi 750 from HSN for $299. Seemed like a good price. It has WAY more POIs than the ONE has, also has text-to-speech, can play the audio (including mp3s) through the vehicle audio system, has a longer battery life, and uses...

    Another happy TomTom trip

    Memorial Day weekend, we went to Lime Rock Park in Connecticut for the Grand AM GT racing weekend. The funny thing was, I plotted the course a couple days before the weekend using my ONE. It routed me down the NYS Thruway to exit 21-A, onto the Berkshire Spur, exit at B-3 and take Rt. 22...

    My trip to the DC area.

    Took my longest trip so far with my ONE from upstate NY to the Washington, DC area. The route the ONE generated (non-toll) was almost identical to my usual route. It did take me on a short-cut from Rt. 30-A to I-88. The only other deviation was that it wanted to put me on I-95 from I-695 in...

    Unable to get updates

    I've had my ONE for a month now. Whenever I connect it to my computer and open TomTom Home and click on "Check for content updates" I get the message: "There was a problem contacting TomTom PLUS. Please try again later." Does this happen to others? I've tried it with my firewall (Sygate)...

    Quick question

    But first, let me say thanks for all the great info here. Because of this forum, I've purchased and installed a 2 gb card in my ONE and have downloaded and installed voices from here. My question is, where do I install the POIs that I download? Thanks! Jim

    Hi all!

    I've been interested in a GPS system for awhile now. My buddy bought a Magellan and I've been looking around at what's available. Saw the Tomtom ONE on QVC last week, it was their Today's Special Value and came with a case, strap, and an AC charger. Seemed like a great deal so I ordered it...
