TomTom one & model name help (off Topic a bit)

  Killo Bite 21:06 16 Jun 2007

after reading endless reviews in the mags and here on the reviews section the "TomTom One Regional" is the one I wish to buy.

Problem: Does is also go by the same aka name as TomTom One GB/UK v2 ? I was looking at Ebuyer to buy but the "Regional" is not listed unless its got another name.
In a PCW mag review it was given as Part No. 5N00.110 but other online sources have diferent numbers.

So does anyone know a little about the TomTom ranges and which model is really a Regional ?

Just some notes of anoyone interested in Medion brand from ALDI, still in Stock at my local is the 460 £199.00 BUT! >
I found this problem also with the Medion there is a GoPal 460, 465 & 470 but they all have a same P4120 number. Note 465 is great but the 460 not so great, their is £60 differece though.

I dont know of any different types of TomTom One. I thought one of the main differences between the One and the others is that the One only has UK/IE maps instead of Europe etc. I own a One which I bought from Halfords about two months ago and I'm more than happy with it.

There is a v1 and v2 version of TTone. Second version is more expensive with the version 6.501. GPS V1.21. map: United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland v660.1199.
Excellent piece of kit but had to buy a home charger (from Amazon) as that is not supplied with TT one.

Before I babble on, can I ask does yours include Traffic updates Free or at extra cost and is GRPS Extra cost, what is GRPS if you know, thanks.

Is the V2 though more expensive better ?
I notice you do not mention the Regional, is this v2 the same as the Regional?

click here , hope this info helps. The v2 needs a minature usb link to charge at home unlike the v1.

My TomTom one didn't come with traffic updates and I dont know what GRPS is either. I dont really know all that much about SatNavs and I only got this initially to act as a speed camera detector, but I'm very happy with how it performs as a navigational device too, although as I'm driving a 44ton truck, it does occasionally try and send me down some incredibly inappropriate roads! Hence I always have an AtoZ open if I have one of the area, just in case! But for drivers or cars or vans, its good enough for anyone in my opinion.

So ths Regional in the magazine reviews like PCW, Computer Shopper, PDA Essentials all refer to regional so am I correct in understanding that the TomTom One models are all Regional and the name Regional means the country/s for which region is covered.

So am I correct in understanding that the TomTom one UK V2 from here click here is a Regional hence Regional for UK & Eire ?

Good post. As you come nearer to your destination I always check with another foolproof sat nav tool. The humble signpost..:)

It's a v2 TomTom. Make sure you get an offer , if you are thinking of buying from the linked site, of a home AC/DC charger. Extra cost but invaluable. Regional, for whatever it's worth--just a name :)
