    URGENT - Tom Tom Sat Nav Advice needed please!

    Hi,

    I need urgent advice as my local shop is doing a Tom Tom deal which ends tomorrow.



    It's for a TomTom One V3 GB for £117.



    I know nothing about satnavs and I am looking to buy this as a gift for my dad. Is this one any good? I know it's uk only but could my dad update it with euromaps later?



    Thank you very much for your help

    seem's a good price, there's a deal for half price maps on tomtom web, it's also on the hot deal board.
    you may need a sd card for the euro maps, not sure myself, try pocketgpsworld.com.

    good luck

    I thought the v3 doesn't have an SD card slot or am I wrong?

    Yip, it doesn't have an sd slot, just and internal memory of 512Mb. I've never used a GPS before so I'm in the dark when buying one for my old man

    Here's some reviews on Amazon:

    Someone mentions that you can't update to Europe maps on v3. But the deal for £117 you mention is quite good, maybe you should post it as a deal here.

    It's a wee family run electrical shop in the village that I live. I managed to get that price from haggling with the owner and it's the last one he has left. He said that he would keep it by for me until tomorrow. I'm just not sure whether or not to go for it?

    That's a great price and a great little unit too - ]TomTom ONE V3 review

    Just to confirm its a budget GPS with Full UK maps and TomTom Mapshare. It no longer has an SD card slot or bluetooth, so it is ideal for the casual user who is likely to use the unit every now and again.

    What shop is selling it at the price?

    I would buy it for that price! Tomtom's are great and I'm sure your dad would like it :thumbsup:

    I'm still toying with the idead of this. Is there a Tom Tom that can be upgraded with europe maps if required? I've also heard of ones that have bluetooth for mobile phones. Any good deals on those?

    If you need the European maps buy the EU version of the TT One for about £143 - Amazon and many others.

    Map add-ons more expensive later.
