Special edition TomTom XXL gets more maps
TomTom on Wednesday introduced a special edition of its TomTom XXL 540S navigator, the World Traveler Edition. The main difference of the new product is the inclusion of maps of the US, Canada and Europe thanks to 4GB of total memory, whereas the standard XXL 540S contains full maps of Canada, the US and about a third of Mexican maps. Otherwise, there is the same 5-inch touchscreen and TomTom's routing technology.
This includes the company's IQ Routes, which calculates routes based on historical speed measurements for the time of day users are travelling and the type of road they're travelling on. Using Map Share, users can modify street names, street direction, points of interest and more on their own device, or download changes made by other TomTom users.
TomTom XXL 540S World Traveler Edition will cost $350 when it is released in early December.
