    TomTom One XL Portable GPS Review


    (Page 1 of 4 )

    TomTom has added to their best-selling TomTom One GPS system with the new TomTom One XL. The new XL is the successor to the very popular TomTom One, and there are only a couple of differences in the two models. Today we take a look at the GPS and see if it has what it takes to get you where you're going.

    The main differences in the two models include a larger screen in the XL, and an option for real-time traffic updates through a Bluetooth-enabled device such as a cell phone. I think that these are two welcome upgrades on an already popular GPS system, and it should make this unit as popular, if not more popular, than its predecessor. 

    The TomTom One XL was released back in June, 2007. The MRSP of this portable GPS unit is $399, although I have seen it currently at around $325 online. At
    this price point, this unit should do well in its highly competitive market. TomTom is an established company which can compete with Magellan and Garmin in the portable GPS market.

    What really stood out for me when studying this device is its ease of use. The interface is easy and straightforward, which will make this unit great for a
    first-timer. The larger screen also adds to the ease of use, because the on-screen buttons are larger and very colorful which make them easy to use without accidentally hitting the wrong button. TomTom seems to be targeting newbies with this device, but I think that previous GPS owners who are looking to upgrade may find the TomTom One XL a great choice.
