The New TomTom ONE

By D Dunbar in GPS. November 9, 2005

Based on the massive hit the TomTom Go 300, the One is basically the same unit if a little smaller with a few extras including bluetooth and a better GPS receiver. The 20 channel SiRF Star III chipset is renowned for its high sensitivity which should enable the little TomTom to pick up signals in built up city areas as well as improving the time to get an initial fix.


Software is the same tried and tested engine that's used in the main range. The screen is a bright 3.5 inch TFT with an added antireflective coating.

As with the other TomToms the comprehensive maps are held on an SD card which slots into the underside of the unit. Power is provided from an internal rechargeable Li-ion battery which TomTom claim lasts 2 hours and can be charged from the provided 12v cigarette adapter.
