Here's the TomTom XL 335S, everyone


TomTom is here with yet another GPS device. The 335S packs a 4.3-inch touchscreen and text to speech functions into a small package with a somewhat competitive MSRP of $239. But like most other GPS units, that MSRP will probably be undercut by retailers as they try to push these GPS units onto holiday shoppers. Thankfully, the XL 335S seems to be decent for that price although I couldn’t tell you the difference between this $239 335S and the $249 340S. (K.I.S.S)

Not only does it have the text to speech functions, but it also comes equipped with TomTom’s suite of software like Map Share technology that allows users to modify the maps and share with others, and the TomTom HOME desktop application that keeps the maps up to date. TomTom also loaded this PND with a redesigned UI that makes it a bit easier to use than previous TomTom menu systems.

The exact release date hasn’t been announced yet, but you can bet that it will be available before the holiday shopping season starts.
