Review: TomTom XL 350-TM GPS device

 

The XL 350-TM provides TomTom's usual impressive navigation features. Included lifetime traffic and lifetime map updates make this one of the most feature-packed GPS devices available for the price.

All XL 350 models, like the XXL 550 models, can be upgraded to a recently announced operating system upgrade. (By contrast, XXL 540 and XL 340 models cannot be upgraded with the latest OS update.) The new operating system includes quick access to the...

TomTom XL 250 GPS unit

 

This TomTom GPS unit is equipped with an extra-large 4.3in touchscreen

Good value, EasyPort mount, redesigned menu, lane guidance, text-to-speech, preloaded safety alerts

Slightly slow route recalculation, no Australian text-to-speech voice, no AC adapter included, no live traffic

The TomTom XL 250 has a slightly redesigned interface that aims to make navigation even simpler. The XL 250 represents good value thanks to its lane guidance, safety camera alerts and a slim design.

TomTom XL

 

Formerly the ONE XL, TomTom has slightly re-branded its entry-level widescreen GPS unit. The XL remains almost identical to the [[prodid:6013]], with ...

Slimline design, 4.3in widescreen, ease of use, EasyPort mount, TomTom HOME software, Map Share, Help Me! safety menu

No included AC adapter

The XL adds a larger display to the already fantastic ONE unit. The new EasyPort mount and TomTom's Map Share feature make this an enticing unit.

Bought 2 of these last November for christmas gifts, after christmas 1 worked, the other would not connect to satillites. These items were past the 30 day warrenty, and would have cost more than double to repair. I will never buy a refurbished product...

Not happy

 

I have bought 3 of these units after having several tom tom units in the past and this does not live up to my expectations. 2 of the 3 lose GPS signal at random times and 2 of 3 needed to have the LIVE feature activated after it was advertised that...

Good value and service

So far so good

 

This is my first Tom Tom, I have only used it 1 time so far and it worked as expected. I went to thier web site to do all the updates and program the unit to my liking, with no problems. All I can say about the unit as of now is, I like it better than...

I like the display

 

I have a Garmin and gave this to a friend as a gift. I used this for two weeks. Once I understood how to use the touch screen, it was fine. I had to enter in the addresses manually to get the route. The Garmin has a nice feature that this doesn't: you...
