Whats in the Box ONE 130-S device, Easyport mount, USB Car Charger and USB cable, documentation A few weeks ago Teenage Daughter and I took a road trip from the Deep South to Toronto. Usually my husband and I share the driving on such trips, and once we enter a city I do the navigating. This time around I knew that I would do all the driving since Teenage Daughter only recently received her learners license. I wanted our trip not to be stressful but rather relaxed without having Teenage Daughter looking constantly at a map and feeling the pressure to navigate in unknown territory. We both
  3. 3. decided to look into a navigation system, but also did not want to spend too much money. I am an avid reader of Consumer Reports and checked out their recent ratings on navigation systems, and of course I read all the amazon reviews. The TomTom ONE 130-S looked like a good and affordable choice. But you never know what you are really getting unless you put the system up to the test. And this model - we named ours Tamara - passed the mother-daughter road trip test with flying colors. This TomTom lets you put in a final destination (address or a Point of Interest = POI), and then it will guide you from your current location or you can plan your trip/s further ahead. So off we went. If you use the computer voice, the TomTom will not only tell you the directions but also the street names which I found rather helpful when driving in a place I am not famili ar with. Yes, you can also download the voice of Bart Simpson and others, but of course you cannot expect for the voice to have recorded all street and place names in the world (or the maps you are using), so you will get only directions which can be confusing, at least it was for me. If you just wish to show off and/or impress your friends while driving in your surroundings, then go ahead. Speaking in a pleasant sounding computer voice (you have several options to pick from) Tamara never once led us astray. We liked that the system came already loaded with the maps of Canada, no additional purchase needed. During the trip we felt the need to stop several times at Dairy Queen. Teenage Daughter simply picked up Tamara, and in no time we knew when the next DQ would come up and of course Tamara led us there if we wished so. Dont panic, you are not tied to DQ as your only option for food - you can also look for other places to eat. The evening before every section of the trip we looked up online where we wanted to go on the way: art museums, H&M stores (the Swedish clothing stores with great affordable fashion), outlet malls with the occasional stop at Trader Joes to stock up on food and the like. Teenage Daughter punched in the address, and off we went the next morning. We had no trouble to navigate through Nashville, Columbus, Cleveland or Toronto. Tamara told me in advance when I had to turn so I could prepare to change lanes. The instructions were clear, and the monitor lets you see exactly where you are and also shows you when to turn. I used the 3D view, but you can also have the map view option. I also liked that the system told me in advance in which lane to keep after a turn in case I needed to turn again. The major test came when we were driving on small roads through Ohio Amish country. Suddenly we faced a closed road more or less in the middle of nowhere. Tamara found an alternative route without a problem. At one point she directed us using rather small roads (for a small section), and we looked at each other rather doubtfully, but she had picked the correct route, and we indeed saved a lot of time by following her when I later checked a map. All in all we were and still are very happy with our purchase. This model is very affordable, and it also allows for upgrades on current traffic problems. If you drive a lot, that could come in handy, but with the alternative route option, we did not see the need for such a subscription. So plug the thing
  4. 4. in, and you are ready to go. An initial loading of the battery is recommended by the manufacturer, which we did. The system attaches rather easily to the windshield, no problems at all. I had read complaints about the system falling to the floor and breaking. If you follow instructions, meaning making sure that the system is snapped in securely, and you know that when you hear a clicking sound and pull and it stays safe in place, you will have no problem whatsoever. If you do not screw the lid of the milk container tightly, and you turn the container and the milk gushes out, it is neither the fault of the carton nor the milk; you, the consumer, are responsible for this malfunction. Initially I asked Teenage Daughter every time if Tamara was securely clicked in place, and after an annoyed look Teenage Daughter would check, and indeed, there were times where Tamara was ready to pop out, so just make sure that the system is locked in, a clicking sound will let you know.The model fits comfortably into a purse and is light weight. After following this TomTom for about 2400 miles I can only say that I would by this system again. And of course you do not need to name your TomTom Tamara. How about Natascha or Boris?
