TomTom XXL GPS debuts

TomTom today chose the US as the venue for its first large-format GPS units. Both the XXL 530S and XXL 540S have 5-inch touchscreens that are easier to read from further away. They logically have the more advanced features of most TomTom mapping units with Map Share for user-created data, a newer UI and IQ Routes that change the route based on past traffic behavior.

The 530S is the core model with no preloaded data, while the 540S adds lane guidance, preloaded maps for all of North America (including Mexico) and the resulting 7 million points of interest. TomTom anticipates the XXL line showing in North America during October at a price of $280 for the 530S and a slight increase to $300 for the 540S.
