We knew it was coming, and this morning TomTom officially debuted its new GPS handheld, the TomTom One XL. The new device will have a wide 4.3-inch touchscreen display with built-in Bluetooth and 32MB of RAM. It'll support real-time traffic displaying everything in 3D or 2D graphics with spoken-word instructions. The unit will be out in June for $399.
I don't have a problem with the larger screen ( like the Nuvi 600 series; it's the thickness of the Tom Tom units that makes it difficult to use as anything other than an in car GPS system ( no walking, no hiking, awkward to have to take it with you out of the car for security reasons). It was also the mounting that made it annoying to install; the weight of it kept drooping the windshield mount. Granted, the Tom Tom one ( which is the unit I purchased before I sent it back )had a lot of nice features including plenty of space on its 20GB hard drive, but for portability, the Garmin Nuvi 370 ( albeit expensive ) is the perfect GPS for me; that is until my eyes give out.
side note - someone on this thread think's the nuvi 300 series is too large......come on, surely you jest.
