TomTom XL 340-S LIVE

 

The $239.95 TomTom XL 340-S LIVE is the best of the Web-connected standalone GPS devices I've tested so far. It offers plenty of Google-based searches and real-time traffic information. It also delivers much of what makes TomTom one of the top-tier...

Real-time traffic. Integrates Web-based services. No ads. Accurate routing. Timely, informative voice prompts. Map view displays plenty of trip info

Expensive monthly fees. Automatic rerouting needs a rethink

The TomTom XL 340-S LIVE is a solid navigator and a good example of what's possible with connected GPS devices, but there's room for improvement.

TomTom XL 340S Live GPS Review

 

Connected GPS provides Google Local Search ; POI database has 7 million entries ; Live traffic, weather, and fuel price updates ; IQ Routes technology works well

Connected services cost $10 per month ; Lacks Bluetooth support

Company's latest connected GPS device carries a fairly low price, but the connected services remain a mixed bag.

TomTom XL 340 S

 

If the tiny screen on TomTom's minimal-but-adequate One navigators has you careening into other lanes as you squint to see your next turn, the XL line of navigators represent an easy step forward to the land of 4.3-inch widescreen bliss. (And relative...

Large screen; flat-folding windshield mount; good build quality ; attractive materials; advanced lane guidance; functional text-to-speech; quick operation

Software needs a facelift; accidental detachment from mount; rerouting can be too slow

Point-A-to-B drivers will love the accurate drive times, no-nonsense address entry, and generous screen on the TomTom XL 340 S.

TomTom XL 340 S

 

The TomTom XL 340 S builds on TomTom's successful XL series of wide-screen portable navigation devices. The XL 340 S' features, such as advanced lane guidance, daily fuel prices, IQ Routes, and TomTom Map Share, work together to constantly update its...

The TomTom XL 340 S has advanced features such as lane guidance, downloadable fuel prices, and user updated maps from TomTom Map Share. Its large 4.3-inch WXGA touch screen is easy to read and to enter addresses on. Text-to-speech enhances the device's...

The larger size, combined with additional thickness added by an EasyPort mount, somewhat limits its portability. Routing from a moving vehicle is considerably slower than from a stationary one.

The TomTom XL 340 S introduces a few advanced features to TomTom's midrange lineup, while staying well below the premium price bracket.

Mr. T Pities the Fool Who Gets Lost With This GPS

 

If you're going on a journey, try not to do it with Evangeline Lilly or Matthew Fox: They're known for getting stranded in random, unknown locations for long

Just like Evangeline Lilly, the 4.3-inch screen is easy on the eyes. Comes with top-to-bottom maps of North America, including more than 7 million points of interest — way more than you'll ever visit. Desktop software built right into the firmware....

No text-to-speech with celebrity voices. Suction-cup mount a bit tricky in cars with deep dashes. Live-traffic features optional and extra. No Bluetooth, so forget about pairing your phone

TomTom XL 340-S

 

PCMag did not test the TomTom XL 340-S. We did, however, test and review the TomTom One 140-S from the same series.

The TomTom XL 340TM adds lifetime map updates and lifetime traffic to the TomTom XL 340-S feature set, and gives you preloaded maps of the US, Canada and Mexico, a 4.3” wide-screen and text-to-speech, so you'll hear “turn right, Oak Street,” instead of...

TomTom XL 340M

 

The TomTom XL 340M adds lifetime map updates to the TomTom XL 340-S feature set, and gives you preloaded maps of the US, Canada and Mexico, a 4.3” wide-screen and text-to-speech, so you'll hear “turn right, Oak Street,” instead of just “turn right.”

TomTom XL 340-S LIVE review

 

The TomTom XL 340-S LIVE is the company's first mid-range, “connected” navigator, offering LIVE services such as Google Local search, gas prices, etc. It has a 4.3” wide-screen and text-to-speech, so you'll hear “turn right, Oak Street,” instead of...

Step down to the TomTom XL 340-S and you'll lose the LIVE services. Now that we have the basics and related models out of the way, lets talk about those “connected services.”

Product Specifications

With TomTom XL, the attractive EasyPort mount can be left on the device and folded flat after use. The complete unit, including the mount, is then small enough to fit into a shirt pocket or bag when you leave the vehicle. In addition, the TomTom XL is equipped with a completely revised audio system so that navigation instructions are even more loud and clear at all times - even above outside traffic noise or a car full of excited children.
