XL smiles from the Tomtom XL
Member Name: danny691
Advantages: Large screen, clear viewing and navigation.
Disadvantages: None to note.
Another birthday present, and one that I get a lot of use out of. A lot of Sat-Nav systems have small screens which I find to be an accident waiting to happen. The main attraxtion for me was the size of the screen. The XL version is much more generously proportioned than the standard version. The size of the screen makes it really easy to use, I've never had any problems with the navigation itself - I find TomTom are the leading provider of satellite navigation systems and having an approximate speed displayed at the bottom of the screen it also warns of speed cameras and when you exceed the limit.
I installed the latest updates when I set the XL up, and I have had no problems since without further updating it. I suppose if you used it for unfamiliar routes on a regular basis then updating it more regular would be useful, and it is very simple to do. The software provided also allows you to load different voices onto the XL and there are many discounts for accessories on their website too.
The sat-Nav itself is well built and the sucker that you stick the unit to the windscreen with is also simple to use as I never leave it attached to the window when I leave the car so I detach it every journey. I would definately suggest anyone looking for their first Sat-Nav system should give this one a look, because the size of the screen allows easy use and when you are driving around the town you dont need to be squinting to look at the map. I cannot find any meaningful downsides to this product.
Summary: Tomtom make the best satnav systems, The XL doesnt disappoint
