very good price mate, nice find, got mine for £132 a few weeks back

That is a good price... presumably there are some discount codes still around which can also be used... as well as quidco?

Voted Hot.

It is available in amazon as well. In fact dixons reduced the price yesterday after amazon reduced the price:roll:

Been on the lookout for a sat nav, but not sure which one to get. Thanks for posting. :thumbsup:

Re pricing, I read somewhere (probably in HotUK deals) that amazon do price match even after you've purchased a product from them.

Only thing is I hate buying from Dixons (bad experiences) so will check out John Lewis or other places that have been posted, that might have this tom tom.

Cheers

p.s. is it worth going for the v2 or v3, or down to personal choice?

pps just noticed Helfords have it for £127, using a code

got my V3 a few weeks back and love it

never had a tomtom so can't compare but the accuracy of everything including the speed you go is spot on, the speed camera warning is especially handy hehe

even has breakdown and first aid tips and all sorts on it

beats the life out of my other halfs sat nav which is inaccurate, slow and crashes all the time
#7
I have had a number of satnavs through my business inc tomtom, pda, etc at the moment I have a garmin nuvi 200 and its the only satnav that picks up a strong signal whilst sitting in my living room plus it was preloaded with cameras and its nice and small.

I can highly recommend it.
#8
Beware buying a satnav to which you can't connect to an external antenna!! I have a Tom Tom 3 which will not pick up a signal in our Renault but works fine in our other car. It is all to do apparently with the windscreen. Some cars have a coating on the windscreen which does not allow the satellite signals to pass through. I have had to purchase an external antenna. It's a real nuisance having to put it on the outside of the car each time but it works well. Check your car's windscreen compatibility as you may need an external antenna.

Great if you want to find your way to the kitchen to make a cuppa :giggle: Sorry, couldn't resist. I'm not sure if I'll mind a sat nav's lack of signal in my living room, as long as it's okay on the roads. Mind you having said that we get rubbish freeview signal where we live:?

re windscreens and antana - how about tom tom working through the ford windscreens with the gold demister thread in them?

How would you know? My satnav tells me that my car's speedo is approx 10% 'generous', which I suppose would make sense, but I have no way of knowing if it's correct.

as the garmin is small and light, plus its designed for when you are out walking. if it can easily pick up a signal in your living room which my tomtom could not then its ideal when out rambling etc. Also it picked up the sat signal in seconds.

I've got a MK2 Mondeo, that has the quickclear windscreen (Gold lines) and the TOMTOM's are fine with these.
#14
RE windscreen in Renault.

I too have a Renault (Clio) and experienced this problem, until I realised there is a small rectangle at the bottom middle of the widescreen which does not have the coating in the glass (you can see a difference). Put your receiver here and all is well :-)

car speedos are always generous and i'm pretty sure can't be used in defense of speeding etc - this is what a driving instuctor told me anyway! I meant it more along the lines of when i speed up and slow down it follows it near instantly, whereas my other halfs sat nav has about 3/4 second delay, hers also tells you to turn left 200yards down the road as you're passing the road it meant!
#16
There's a massive difference here people.

[SIZE="4"]THIS ONE IS THE V3! NOT THE 3RD EDITION
[/SIZE]

The V3 is the previous version (v6 software) which does have an SD card slot and all those nice things.

There is a new version on the market (not this one) which is called Tomtom ONE 3rd Edition

Agreed. Having an external antenna is very useful.

1. Better reception :)

2. The ability to locate the device off the top of the dash and away from prying eyes. :thumbsup:
#20
I can't find anything on either the first post or the Dixons site that says the word "Edition". The Amazon one DOES say is is the 3rd Edition version.

Quite correctly, they are saying the v3 is the 3rd version.
We know there was a v1, a v2 and a v3. There is now the 3rd edition.

If you follow the link to Pocketgpsworld, it pretty much says that this is very confusing. In fact, someone said that they had bought a v3 12 months ago and they couldn't understand why Tomtom were saying this was new.

I think you are right and this is in fact the 3rd edition (based on the picture and info), however, NOWHERE on the article or link does this say as much.
#21
Amazon says there is a SD card slot and it comes with 1GB SD card. I am not sure this is true as v3 does not have SD card slot:thinking:

V7 + Mapshare is Now available on the Tomtom one new edition (although some won't get it yet) if you tomtom has the v 6.775 map i think it is...

Just plug the Tomtom into your pc and signon to tomtom home and it should download an update (atm its only units with serial numbers starting Z1 Z2, Z3)

Yup, I know a guy who runs a private-hire taxi firm and I remember having a conversation about this a few months ago. He said all his drivers who have sat nav (various types) get a slightly lower MPH reading from the satnav and that when cars are produced they are allowed up to 5 MPH tolerance on the speedo above real speed but zero tolerance below real speed - makes sense.

Note: Swapping wheels/tyres to end up with a larger overall diameter than factory fitted will make your speedo read less though only by a tiny amount, unless you change to huge Bigfoot 4x4x4 style wheels!
#25
Speeds indicated on sat nav devices are much more accurate than your cars speedo will show. Things like heat and tyre wear cause variances in actual car speeds which car manaufacturers allow for. Speedos typically display faster speeds than you actually travel.

GPS accuracy is much greater.

I purchased a TomTom V3 from Dixons last week and it has no sd slot or connection for an external aerial.
#26
Err, I meant is it better than this version.
#27
Satellite reception: Much more to do with the ability of the chipset inside the device. You can't get better than the Sirf chipset inside the TomTom.

Sirf version 3 onward picks up satellites easily.

TomTom has the best maps.

TomTom is the best device to get currently for road/traffic use.
(Although I would get a Garmin for cycling)

The police have APCO guidelines before they nick you for speeding.
Its 10% + 2mph. So if you are in a 30, they will only nick you if you do (30 + 3 + 2) = 35 on their equipment for a safe conviction. If you think about motorway use, thats 70 + 7 + 2. Thats 79 (real) mph. If you note that most speedo's are generous, then if you drive at 85 mph on your speedo or less than you are very unlikely to get nicked. Anyone here who has an SP70 on their license will have been doing 90 mph or more, I gaurantee it.

So there you have it. TomTom picks up Satellites nicely, has great maps.
Speedo's suck.

Hah mine keeps trying to send me down a dead end street in my local town...
I just had it auto-update to V7 but haven't figured out how to put a correction in against mapshare yet :oops:
#29
I had an original Tomtom classic (and I have a Ford heated windscreen) - I needed the external antenna despite it being able to pick up a signal in the corner, the antenna imporved things 100%. However with my new 720 TomTom Go the reception is remarkable, it picks up satellites when Im inside, and has no trouble with the windscreen so I dont hook up an antenna. I have a feeling these new One units will have a similar internal antenna to my 720 so they should be fine without one. That said the antennas are only a tenner of ebay, and bear in mind back in 2004 I paid £55 for my classic antenna!! Bargain...
#30
The v3 One does not have the Sirf3 chipset but the alternative works at least as well...

Buy this from Amazon where you can be assured of support if you receive a duff unit!
#31
Ahh I stand corrected, maybe my 720 has a different chipset then. Either way Id recommend TomTom for their ease of use - athough the support is limited to automated emails, real pain when something goes wrong. That said eventually you do get to speak to someone its just a bit tricky.

Is that the law..? I only ask because a colleague of mine got a letter from the police saying he'd been caught doing 34 MPH in a 30 zone and so a fine (£60 I think?) and 3 points or opt for a 'safer-driving course' thing.

I guess either he's read the MPH figure wrong (doubtful) or we're not safe from conviction at 10% + 2 MPH, or Northumbria Police do things their own way!

My sister was booked for 32 mph in 30 zone and attended a speed aware course to avoid the points ( and fine I think), this was in North Wales where the Chief Constable has got a bit of a rep for speed tickets, Jeremy Clarkson has mentioned him a few times on his show.
Gone for the TomTom 1 from Halfords, £127 minus 4% quidco hopefully - thanks Charlie Brown.
#35
if this has no memory slot how do you upgrade or change the maps, especially to Europe ?
#36
Upgrade or update use usb connection to PC, don't think you can put euro maps on this one.

If you want the euro maps see links in Charlie Brown's post on page 1, £146 after code - don`t know if that is the best price around for tomtom one V3 with euromaps
#37
The ACPO guidelines are just that, guidelines for the chiefs of police.
The law is 30 in a 30.

But even from our discussion here, a motorist could argue in court that their speedo showed 28, even though they were doing 32 according to the police.
So rather than waste their own time, police know they should leave a comfortable gap before they arrest and charge someone.

"Safety" cameras, are never set at 30 in a 30 for eg. They will trigger at 35+ or something similar.

If I was caught speeding so close to the limit, I would find a good lawyer, 32 in a 30 is petty (and very unsafe). And its exactly why the Police get little respect from the public when criminals are running free and they are sat in laybys with their little laser guns.

North Wales is renowned for above I'm afraid. There is a problem, especially with bikers, with people coming into area to give their bike a blast on the quieter roads but whether prosecuting motorists for 2 or 3 mph over limit helps is doubtful.

I'm not having a go at you but what you're saying just doesn't make sense to me now...

If a motorist tried to argue their speedo showed 28 when actually doing 32 then that's the opposite of what their argument would be based on isn't it as car speedo's show higher than real speed, not lower..?

If speed/safety cameras in 30 zones are set at 35+ then how do people get caught at 32 or 34? And why is 32 in a 30 zone very unsafe?

I personally couldn't afford to hire a good lawyer (or probably even a bad one lol!) so if one of these days I get a letter saying I've been caught at 32 (or whatever) I hope I'll get the chance to do the safe driving course instead :-D

I do totally agree with you that the Police do seem to spend too much time chasing 'normal' people for petty offences (like 5 MPH over the limit) but to be fair it's probably not the fault of the actual individual officers themselves but the Chiefs and government.
