TomTom XXL 540-S

TomTom XXL 540-S review 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 540-S is one of TomTom’s first 5” models. It comes with preloaded maps of the US, Canada and Mexico, and 7 million points of interest.

The XXL 540-S 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.

  • Meanwhile, the TomTom XXL 540TM adds lifetime map updates and traffic to the XXL 540-S’s feature set
  • Going the other direction, step down to the XXL 530-S and you’ll still get the big screen, but you’ll lose Advanced Lane Guidance and Mexican maps and POIs
