TomTom XXL530S is upgraded version of XL530S with wider screen size which makes it easy on eyes and more comfortable to read your maps with the POI and other details that come handy while on the road. This GPS device comes with US and Canada maps which can be updated online via their site or purchased separately for any other country that you may be interested in.
TomTom XXL530S is following trend of have 3D maps installed on the dives. This is nothing new as Garmin and other competitors started to provide maps since the beginning of 2009. It is easy to get oriented with 3D maps but I would not pay premium if TomTom would have charged for it. In fact, sometimes 2D maps do just fine for me.
It is not very difficult to mount this device even though many versions of TomTom had issues with the standard mount that comes with it. Many people on this site forum as well as on other forums brought it as one of the weaknesses of all recent TomTom devices. I guess TomTom paid attention and XXL530S comes with built-in mount that you can fold into the device.
Other notable features of TomTom XXL530S are
- Spoken Street Names
- IQ Routes
- 5-Inch Touchscreen
- millions of points of interest
