About - TomTom XL 350 M

The TomTom XL 350 M is a GPS available from TomTom. The XL 350 M typically costs between $86.09 - $104.99.

Consumer Reports recommends that you match the features on a model to the needs you have. Here's our take on some of the specifications and features that are commonly available on GPS models like the XL 350 M.


Screen size (in.):
The diagonal length of the display screen measured in inches and rounded to the nearest tenth on an inch.

Weight (oz.):
Measured weight of just the unit (excluding mount) in ounces rounded to the nearest tenth.

Spoken street names:
Commonly referred to as "Text-to-Speech," this helpful feature is the ability to pronounce proper street names. For example, a system with this feature would say, "Turn right on Truman Avenue" rather than, "Turn right in 500 feet." Spoken street names allows the driver to confirm directions with street signs without looking at the screen.

Comment:
I bought this with a map of Europe along with a map of North America. I can easily change the map and change the preferences over to kilometers when I arrive in Europe and then it is super simple to sight-see either by foot or by car. It does get confused in the train though.
