TomTom XL 340 S

CNET
14 August 2009
  • Summary: The TomTom XL 340 S introduces a few advanced features to TomTom's midrange lineup, while staying well below the premium price bracket.
  • Pros: The TomTom XL 340 S has advanced features such as lane guidance, downloadable fuel prices, and user updated maps from TomTom Map Share. Its large 4.3-inch WXGA touch screen is easy to read and to enter addresses on. Text-to-speech enhances the device's safety.
  • Cons: The larger size, combined with additional thickness added by an EasyPort mount, somewhat limits its portability. Routing from a moving vehicle is considerably slower than from a stationary one.

TomTom XL 340 S Review

  • Conclusion: When you’re ready to step away from a barebones navigator that’s been cooking in your glove box for years, but not quite willing to shell out hundreds for features like built-in FM transmitters and MP3 player, TomTom’s XL 340 S makes a lot of sense. Point-A-to-B drivers will love the accurate drive times, no-nonsense address entry, and generous screen on the TomTom XL 340 S.
  • Pros: Large screen; flat-folding windshield mount; good build quality, attractive materials; advanced lane guidance; functional text-to-speech; quick operation
  • Cons: Software needs a facelift; accidental detachment from mount; rerouting can be too slow

  • Excerpt: TomTom's XL 340 S successfully bridges the gap between bank-breaking and budget navigators. If the tiny screen on TomTom’s minimal-but-adequate One navigators has you careening into other lanes as you squint to see your next turn, the XL line of navigators represent an easy step forward to the land of 4.3-inch widescreen bliss. (And relative safety for the people driving next to you.
