TomTom unveils new ONE and XL GPS systems

Posted on Saturday, May 03 2008 @ 23:15:43 CEST by


TomTom has released two nes GPS navigation units this week; the TomTom ONE and TomTom XL. Both devices have a redesigned body and feature a flexible, folding mount.
In line with its acclaimed ease of use – in software, maps and installation, TomTom has introduced a brand-new mounting solution with the TomTom ONE and TomTom XL. This new windshield mount – known as the EasyPort™ mount – can be left on the device and folded flat after use. The complete unit, including the mount, is then small enough to fit into a shirt pocket, bag or pocket when the driver leaves the vehicle.

In addition, the TomTom ONE and TomTom XL are now equipped with a completely revised audio system so that navigation instructions are even more loud and clear at all times – even above outside traffic noise or a car full of excited children. Text-to-speech models are also available on the new TomTom ONE and TomTom XL devices so that users can hear street names, places, traffic alerts and text messages as part of the spoken instructions.

Truly compact and portable, the TomTom ONE comes with a 3.5 inch touch screen LCD, while the TomTom XL boasts a 4.3 inch widescreen LCD, for those who prefer a larger display.

The new TomTom ONE (the world’s best-selling portable navigation device) and TomTom XL supersede the current TomTom ONE 3RD EDITION and TomTom ONE XL ranges, and will be available at retailers in May 2008.

Jocelyn Vigreux, president of TomTom Inc., said, “The updated TomTom ONE and TomTom XL are now even more desirable, offering unrivalled ease of use, extreme portability, the most comprehensive and up-to-date maps, and personalization options to suit the individual user – all at an affordable price.

“The distinctive design of the new TomTom ONE and TomTom XL, with the convenience of the EasyPort™ mounting solution, will set them apart from other devices on the market, and will appeal to customers looking for a compact, smart, ultra-portable navigation solution without compromising quality or features.”

EasyPort™ mount
The TomTom EasyPort™ mount has a unique, flexible design, allowing the user to affix their TomTom device securely to the desired position on the windshield, using the mechanical locking system. Once at their destination, the user can then remove it quickly and easily, with one twist, when leaving their vehicle. The clever design allows the driver to fold away the mount neatly onto the TomTom device – and remove the entire unit, without having to worry about stowing the mount separately.

Safety as a priority
Independent safety research** has shown the importance of audible navigation instructions to road safety. While both the TomTom ONE and TomTom XL ranges have been redesigned, no compromise has been made on audio performance. The TomTom ONE and TomTom XL now include a much larger, enhanced speaker system, so that the spoken instructions are loud and clear at all times against any background noise within a typical in-car environment.

TomTom’s exclusive ‘Help Me!’ feature will give new TomTom ONE and TomTom XL users direct access to safety and emergency services information. The extensive ‘Help Me!’ menu includes information such as emergency and breakdown service numbers, directions to the nearest hospital and car repair service. Advanced safety preferences also allow the user to set their own requirements regarding speed warnings, timed driving breaks and menu accessibility options.

TomTom Map Share
Users of the new TomTom ONE and TomTom XL ranges will benefit from TomTom’s unique Map Share technology, with millions of corrections and improvements uploaded and shared every month by the TomTom online user community. These can include changes in street names, road speed limits, turn restrictions, traffic directions and road blocks, as well as corrections to Points of Interest, such as phone numbers changes. Map Share enables drivers to receive the corrections from other users or improve their own maps instantly on their device. TomTom has the world’s largest satellite navigation community with more than 20 million users, and Map Share means TomTom drivers can always have the most up-to-date maps and inside local knowledge at their fingertips.

Traffic-ready
The new TomTom ONE and TomTom XL devices can offer the latest and most up-to-date traffic information with an optional RDS-TMC traffic receiver, available for purchase as an accessory.

Latest map guarantee
TomTom portable navigation devices are installed with the latest maps during production, however, customers can be assured that if a new map is released during the first 30 days of using their new device, they are entitled to a free download of the latest map, via TomTom HOME.
