TomTom XL 330S review: TomTom XL 330S


Entry-level GPS are a dime a dozen these days, but the TomTom XL 330S stands out for a couple of reasons. It updates the TomTom One XL with a better speaker and sleeker design, while keeping the things we loved about the One XL, including a spacious...

The TomTom XL 330S offers accurate directions with text-to-speech functionality and is easy to use. The GPS is also sleek and features a spacious 4.3-inch touch screen.

Route recalculations could be a little faster. The mini USB port/power connector is difficult to access. The price is too high, especially without integrated Bluetooth.

Stylish, easy to use, and accurate, the TomTom XL 330S is a great all-around GPS but we wish it was just a little cheaper.
