TomTom XL 340

TomTom XL 340
UPDATE: This model has been discontinued. For a list of current TomTom models and their features, please see our TomTom comparison chart.

The TomTom XL 340 updates the XL 330, adding IQ Routes and Advanced Lane Guidance, and expanding map coverage to include Mexico, as well as the U.S. and Canada.

IQ Routes technology calculates the fastest route using historical traffic speed data for both the day of the week and time of day. The Advanced Lane Guidance feature, shown below on the smaller screen TomTom ONE 140, provides a visual representation of highway junctions, along with lane-specific directions. Mexican map coverage includes 35% of the 31 states with detailed coverage of Mexico City and Guadalajara, the main road network and 2,431 counties. tomtom-140-alg Compare prices on the TomTom XL 340

The XL 340 offers a 4.3” touch screen. Move up to the XL 340-S and you’ll get text-to-speech, so you’ll hear “turn right, Oak Street,” instead of just “turn right,” which is what you get with the XL-340.

Dropping down in the product line, the TomTom ONE 140 and 140-S offer the same feature set as the XL 340 series, albeit with a smaller 3.5” screen. The ONE 140–S features text-to-speech, while the ONE 140 does not.

Finally, the TomTom XL 340 series uses the EasyPort mount, which I’m not a big fan of. You can read more about that in my TomTom XL 330–S review.
