TomTom ONE XL GPS

TomTom on Monday at last unveiled the ONE XL, an adaptation of its streamlined ONE with a wide 4.3-inch, 480x272 touchscreen to replace the standard 3.5-inch (320x240) display. The extra space is useful for both the extra visibility of GPS map details and for a new feature: the XL brings in support for RDS traffic alerts that tie into the map and help avoid congested spots during a drive. Bluetooth 2.0 for hands-free calls is built-in with extra support for TomTom's location-based Buddies system for spotting nearby friends on the road.

The device maker is planning a worldwide launch in May with the US release of the XL priced at $400, whicn includes preloaded maps of both Canada and the US.
