TomTom Expands GPS Line to Add ONE XL

April 17, 2007

For those tired of peering at a tiny GPS screen, TomTom on Monday introduced the TomTom ONE XL.

As the name suggests, the device is based upon the TomTom ONE, except with a larger 4.3-inch touch screen. The TomTom ONE XL will be available for $399 at major retailers across the US and Canada in June 2007, the company said. The ONE is priced at $299.95 list.

Although the TomTom ONE line is voice-enabled (recent voices have included pitcher Curt Schilling and actor Gary Busey) the larger screen will allow an expanded view of the driving area, showing even more street names and side roads, the company said. The company's QuickGPSfix software is included, to locate GPS satellites even faster.

Customers will have access to all the TomTom PLUS services including real-time traffic and weather reports, updates on road conditions and TomTom Buddies feature, according to TomTom.
