I managed to find the time to visit my local gadget store to pick up a Tomtom as mentioned in my previous post. I ended up going for the XL rather than the smaller One 140 as I found typing street names on the 3.5inch screen not a pleasant experience. The XL had a 4.3″ which was similar to the iPhone screen.
I fired it up and tested right after work. It started up quickly and locked onto the sattelites in less than 60 secs.. Quite impressive. Also love the inbuilt car windscreen mount… Smart design as I hate having to buy a separate car screen mount for the unit.
The UI was as expected.. Loud and clear speakers and the screen is bright and very readible.
So far I am happy with the purchase and look forward to putting it to the test this Sunday when I head off for a day trip!
