UPDATE: This model has been discontinued. For a list of current TomTom models and their features, please see our TomTom comparison chart.
The TomTom XXL 540M has a luxurious 5” screen and comes preloaded with maps of the US, Canada and Mexico, and is stuffed with 7 million points of interest. All this plus lifetime map updates.
The XXL 540M includes Advanced Lane Guidance, which provides a visual representation of highway junctions, along with lane-specific directions. It also has IQ Routes, TomTom’s historical traffic speed data that can result in improved routing in areas prone to traffic problems.
- Step up to the TomTom XXL 540TM to add lifetime traffic to the 540M’s feature set
- Despite the higher product number, the XXL 550M gives up quite a few options with its simplified interface, but still offers lifetime maps in a 5″ package
- The TomTom XXL 540-S is identical to the XXL 540M, except that it leaves off the lifetime map updates
- Or you can give up a bit of screen size with the 4.3″ TomTom XL 340M
