TomTom XL 340S LIVE uses AT&T

TomTom added its first true mid-range GPS device with an Internet connection. The XL 340S LIVE updates the earlier 340S with live data pulled over AT&T's cellular network: like the more advanced models, it uses the link to get updated traffic information as well as Google Local Search and relevant data like gas prices and weather. The traffic data in particular helps with TomTom's IQ Routes to gauge the quickest routes based on historical traffic patterns.

Apart from the cellular service, the XL 340S LIVE is relatively simple with its 4.3-inch touchscreen and lane assist modes as its stand-out features. TomTom is selling the new GPS for $300; three free months of online access are included, but it costs $10 per month to continue a subscription.
