Yes, it's the newer version of the One. I've updated the first post to include an image :thumbsup:

Oh yes, just read, the meanies!

I notice this is available from Comet for £149.99 with a free TOM TOM 9N00.100 case worth £19.99. I THINK you may get Quidco discount on their collect in store as you seem to pay and reserve for collection, bringing the price down to £144.74 with the case. Unfortunately all the stores near me have only partial stock, ie either case or Tomtom not available, so I cannot test that hypothesis. They do a free delivery, but this takes ages, earliest date for my basket is 21st May.

I am temped to pick one up at PC World today. I would prefer the Europe version, but I like this price.

I have TomTom 5 on PDA, but it's too fiddly, and maps a bit dated.

I just fired off a question to TomTom - does TomTom One V2 have the new London congestion zone? Their website FAQ is not clear, it just says map V6.75 has the new zones, but does not say if they are loaded to all TomTom Ones. For people living in London or visiting London this is important.

To buy the updated map version 6.75 costs 59 euros!

I have concerns about this because I emailed TomTom on 27 February just after the new zones came in, and this is what they said at the time:

[INDENT]Thank you for contacting TomTom Customer Support.

Hi, none of our maps or products include Cognestion Charge Zone change. Please read the following statement from TomTom.

Change of the London Congestion Charge Zone in February 2007

Roads that are part of the congestion charge zone are classified as toll roads within the map data. Same as for new roads that are being built or existing ones that have changed, the change to the congestion charge zone in London - taking effect as of February 2007 - need to be implemented into the map data itself.

TomTom and its map suppliers rely on local government and other local organisations across the whole of Europe to supply us with the correct, relevant and most up to date information for millions of roads, streets and lanes.

As a consumer orientated organization it is our goal to provide you with the latest available map data. Therefore TomTom purchases new maps from these suppliers on a regular basis and offers them to you via the [url]www.tomtom.com/maps[/url] approx. every 6 months against a small update fee, which is the most attractive of its kind.[/INDENT]

If anyone here has a TomTom One V2 that they have bought recently, any info on the map version?

In the meantime I am going to PC world to see if I can get one demonstrated.

Many thanks.

Is there actually a difference between Tomtom Mobile, Navigator and these stand alone units.


Tomtom mobile software is for phones, Navigator software is for PDAs. Navigator software is usually supplied with a bluetooth or wired GPS, whereas I think smart phones may have a GPS built in.

These stand alone units are both hardware and software, in other words a solution in a box. They are great because they are easy to use and do just what they are supposed to do, nothing else. Sound quality and display are usually much better on the stand alone units. The software has much the same functionality on all units, however some third parties may write software for, say, Navigator and PDA, but not for the Tomtom One. For example, a program called POI warner was for Navigator only, when I last checked in 2006.

I have used a PDA with Navigator 4 and 5 software and full maps of Europe for a few years, but they are more fiddly to use, more expensive, less reliable and require a separate GPS.

Rather than update the maps, it is my intention to buy a TomTom One.

Sadly, I am torn between buying this one, or waiting until there is a better deal on the European ones. I hire a car in Europe occasionally, and on such occasions the benefits of having TomTom is absolutely out of this world!

If I get the Euro version, I can get rid of my PDA and navigator 5 on ebay. There was a good hotdeal on Tomtom One Europe with Tesco Direct a few weeks back. Not this weekend though. Decisions decisions...

Hi, quick question. I've a Ford Galaxy Zetec 1999 and wondered if anyone has experienced problems using a Tomtom with a Ford. I'm looking to get the Tomtom One V2 Europe ( looking out for a good deal! ). However, I've heard that the reception can be non existent / not very good because of the reflective / heated windscreen. Has anyone experienced any problems. Many thanks.

What is the difference between a v2 tomtom One and previous models?

Can a TomTom with UK maps be upgraded to european maps or other city maps for instance when you go on holiday?

Many thanks but I cannot get the link to work!?

However the warning sounds for speed cameras seems to sometimes come on when there are no visible cameras.


There is a setting somewhere that is along the lines of "Warn if only on route". Roughly translated means when enabled it will only make a sound if the speed cam (or other POI) is on your actual planned route. If disabled then it will also make a sound if the speed cam is on, for example, a road running parallel to yours.

Why would you be interested in speed cams not on your route? If you happen to make a wrong turning and the software isn't fast enough to catch up with a re-route then you will still, at least, be warned with any speed cams you may otherwise zip past.

I just got the reply back:
[INDENT]The new TomTom ONE XL Regional comes with Map V 6.75 which has the new London Congestion zone. The older version of Tom Tom One does not.

With Best Regards

The TomTom Customer Support Team[/INDENT]

Crafty ******s! So that's me saying "NO" to this offer, sadly.

In actual fact even the above is not clear, because I don't think the XL supersedes the One, and they talk about "the older version of Tom Tom One". Does that mean the newer Tomtom Ones have the newer maps, but many of these offers are probably being sold with older maps? Eventually, I think all Tomtom Ones will have the newer maps, but for now it is a case of "buyer beware", you may be buying an old map!

Anyone out there got any feedback on map versions?

Many thanks

I'm running tomtom mobile on my smart phone with latest speed camera poi's.

However the warning sounds for speed cameras seems to sometimes come on when there are no visible cameras.


That's because the Tomtom, like most SatNav systems are pretty useless as camera warning systems:

The speed camera database is essentially a list of points of interest and the driver is warned when he gets within a given radius of the camera - in built up areas this gives rise to lots of pointless warnings about cameras which

a) are not on your route
b) are measuring traffic going in the opposite direction to you
c) warn you even if you are not speeding

Additionally it is fairly universally recognised that the actual Tomttom database is of inconsistent quality and not very well managed or updated.

On the 21st May there will be an answer to this problem, but only for Tomtom GO Series, not Tomtom One. However I can't tell you what it is because that would be self promotion and HUKD would smack my wrists if I did so.

All I can suggest is that you buy Auto EXPRESS on the 23rd May and have a look at the adverts in the Product Honours Award Supplement.

Alternatively the Daily Telegraph Motoring Section on the following Saturday may also have a feature about this.

But as Cuddy points out, in Tomtom version 5 and above, you can set it to warn about POI ONLY if on your route, and you can reduce the warning distance. This can then be used with other third party databases that are more accurate. My friend has a Tomtom Go 300 and uses this. The only fault I can find is that you are limited to the Tomtom's internal sound library, and there aren't that many.

Oooh, I'm intrigued. Can you PM it to those of us who are interested? :)

I asked...


[INDENT]I would like to buy a TomTom One Europe. Will this eventually have a map which has the new London Congestion Zone, and if so what map version should I be looking for? Do you know when this may be in the shops?[/INDENT]

TomTom replied:

[INDENT]The later maps should be available on the units in the coming month or, the latest map version is Map V 6.75. It is quite difficult to ensure the map version is on a device as sometimes stores sell older stock and so on. Please check in the device if possible that the unit has Map V 6.75.[/INDENT]

As I suspected. Therefore, if you want to save yourself the cost of a map upgrade, check the map version when you buy.
