The TomTom ONE third edition offers traffic updates, Bluetooth hands-free calling and MapShare, a feature that allows users to edit details of their maps. This GPS device comes installed with a map of North America; however, you may want to add a map for another area, such as Australia, South America or Europe. After purchasing your map, you can install it using the free TomTom HOME software, which facilitates data transfer between the device and your computer.
