TomTom XL LIVE debuts

TomTom has announced a new GPS unit, the XL LIVE. The device is notable mainly for carrying LIVE services over to XL models, the option having previously been limited to the GO line. Through LIVE users have access to real-time camera and traffic data, as well as figures on fuel prices. A Google search function translates results into destination points.

The unit relies on a 4.3-inch screen, and includes other features such as lane guidance and IQ Routes. The latter derives routes from historical traffic data, though routes can also be altered based on LIVE information. Two versions of the XL LIVE should become available in June: the first will cover 42 European countries, while a second, cheaper model will only carry maps for specific regions. LIVE service costs 10 per month, 60 for six months or 100 for a year, though three- or six-month trials will be bundled with each device.
