TomTom One 125

The Good The TomTom One 125 delivers accurate directions and good performance. The GPS is easy to use and offers the essential navigation features, including a Help Me safety feature.

The Bad The One 125 doesn't include text-to-speech functionality. The display is on the smaller side, and the car mount is weak.

The Bottom Line Though we miss text-to-speech functionality, the TomTom One 125 is an easy-to-use, accurate, and affordable GPS for first-time buyers.

TomTom One 125

Editors' note: Portions of the Features section was taken from our review of the TomTom One 130S since the two GPS share similar capabilities.

The TomTom One 125 isn't the newest or flashiest portable navigation device on the market, but that's OK. Not everyone needs the latest or greatest. What the One 125 offers is a solid, entry-level GPS for first-time buyers or for those looking for the most basic navigation functions. Similar to the TomTom One 130S (except it doesn't include Canadian maps or text-to-speech functionality), the GPS is easy to use and affordably priced at $179.99. There are some trade-offs, of course. For example, you get a 3.5-inch display instead of a 4.3-inch screen and, as we noted earlier, you don't get text-to-speech functionality. However, it delivers where it counts, with accurate tracking and clear, audible directions.

Design
One thing you'll notice about the TomTom One 125 right out of the box is its simple and compact design. It's similar in shape to the TomTom One 130S, measuring just 3.8 inches wide by 3.2 inches tall by 1 inch thick and weighs 6.7 ounces. It's small enough that you could hold it in your hand for navigating on foot or mount it to a bicycle, and the GPS has pedestrian and bicycle routing modes as a bonus.
