Does anyone know what gps chipset the ONE LE uses? Hammerhead or SiRFStar III?
Just about every other manufacturer lists the specs of thier gps chipset except for TomTom. Why all the secrecy?
False info!The logo at the bottom of the TomTom identifies the chip set technology provider. Look next to the "CE" mark on this picture of a TT1 v2 that has the SiRF chip set.
If you don't see that little logo, you've got the Hammerhead chip.
I also opened my LE but all the chips are covered by shielding boxes. How could you tell what chips underneath? Do you mind post some internal photos?
I did not open the touch screen side though, but usually that side won't have chips and even so they'll be sheltered as well, I guess. But I'm going to open that side tomorrow anyway (too late now).
I also wonder why that 3rd unit I had was so good. Unfortunately I no longer have it with me.
I still have a 3rd unit here unopened. I'll open it later in the week and compare it with my LE. I am starting to see what you are seeing with the LE, long satellite acquisition times. I see bars but it won't say they are valid signals for a while.
Ooops, and just now when I went to power it up, it' won't! Had to press the reset button.
Why did you get rid of your 3rd ed unit?
According to this article, it is the hammerhead that needs the help of the quickgpsfix. Tomtom's public relations manager claims both chip are equally good (lie) and both will be used (seems true).
So, I'll go to some stores and look for a 3rd with a SiRF logo on it.
I'm guessing the board layout and possibly the removal of the external GPS antenna jack is the reason the 3rd edition works better.
