TomTom XXL 550-TM

Macworld
27 February 2011
  • Excerpt: (1 items) While a 4.3-inch screen has become the standard size for personal navigation devices, the upgrade to a 5.0-inch screen can make a significant difference. TomTom has two series of XXL products with 5.0-inch screens, the XXL 540-TM and the XXL 550-TM reviewed here. At one time, such an upgrade carried a huge premium, but no more: Now the premium can be as little as $40.
  • Pros: Sensible routes from TomTom's IQ Route, Generous database of 7 million POIs, Live traffic receiver integrated into power cable on traffic-enabled models
  • Cons: No Bluetooth

  • Conclusion: The TomTom XXL 550-TM makes a compelling case for replacing an older standalone navigation device, thanks to its large screen, solid GPS performance, and free map and traffic updates.
  • Pros: Accurate navigation. Clear voice prompts. Free maps and real-time traffic information. Fast boot-up. Good value.
  • Cons: Occasional UI sluggishness. Drab map graphics. Fiddly power connector. No Bluetooth hands-free mode. Doesn't shut off with the car ignition.
