TomTom XL 350 and XXL 550 To Debut In Late May 2010

TomTom is rolling out the XL 350 and XXL 550 series in late May.  They’ll come with the latest maps, include TomTom’s new EasyMenu user interface and TomTom’s proprietary IQ Routes™ Technology and TomTom Map Share™.

If you travel much, a GPS is a must have.  They take the thought and guess work out of the process and you know this if you have one already.  My experience with TomTom has been great in the past with only a few misdirected routes and those were very rural areas or because I needed to update.

The new X 50 series are reasonbaly priced at $169 for the XL 350 4.3”, and $199 for the XXL 550 5.0”.  Lifetime Maps and Lifetime Traffic Updates are each available for an additional $30.

Check availability at Amazon. [Read more…]
