First impressions: TomTom ONE Europe Traffic

After reviving one of the dead TomToms, I have used the new ONE Europe Traffic for a few days. And I am hooked. It has less features than the GO 720 T it replaced, but I actually like it better. The main reason is that the device is much smaller and lighter. Together with the new EasyPort screen mount that means it is much more solid. Less device shake, easier to read, takes up less of your field of vision.

The only thing I am not liking is the recessed USB plug. It always takes a few tries to hook up the cable, both at home and in the car. The fake metal frame around the screen feels cheap, but the device itself is very solid. The speaker on the back is loud enough to be heard with the top down, the screen is very bright. Attaching the device to the screen mount is easier than ever. Internal memory is 2 gig now, so there is plenty of room for additional maps. All of Europe takes up just two thirds of that capacity. There is no external SD card slot however.

There is a new TMC receiver that hooks up to the USB port, and then you plug the regular USB cable into the receiver and the power outlet. There is room for improvement here. Why not create a 12V plug with an built-in receiver and do away with the regular cable?

I am a happy camper with the new ONE. Editor-refuses-to-give-it-back award and all ...
