I sold my old car and with the proceeds decided after much deliberation to buy myself a Tomtom One (New Edition) with western Europe maps.

It is a total failure in many areas compared with the previous models:
- The lack of memory expansion precludes update to a western European map if ever required. This lack of expansion is a serious failing and limits the future usability. To supply a paltry 512mb internal memory in these days of increasingly cheap memory... (read more)
