Reduce Driver Stress

Find the right route every time with the XXL, including the latest maps, and easy and clear instructions on how to get started.

Advanced Lane Guidance

Drivers often feel stressed at unfamiliar junctions when there are a lot of lanes to choose from. Advanced lane guidance provides extra clarity to drivers in these circumstances, so they won't miss a turn or have to make a last-minute lane crossing. It works by giving them a still 3D image on the screen that clearly indicates the lane they need to take. So even at the most complex junctions and in the heaviest traffic, drivers can stay relaxed and in control.

Latest Map Guarantee

Sometimes, TomTom releases a new map between the time a device is manufactured and the time someone buys it. So we allow every TomTom customer to check for a new map release within 30 days of first using their device. If one is available, customers simply use the voucher that is included inside the box to download it for free. This is all done via HOME, TomTom's free desktop application, which will automatically recognise a newly connected device and check whether a newer map release is available for it.

Map Share™ Technology

Our research reveals that roads change by as much as 15% every year. That's why we draw upon the largest satellite navigation community in the world – ours. Through our unique Map Share™ technology, drivers can make corrections to their map and benefit from thousands of corrections made by over 40 million TomTom users every day – free of charge.

Over 5 million Map Share™ corrections have been made worldwide to date. Through Map Share™, a driver can: block and unblock a street, reverse traffic direction, edit a street name, change turn restrictions, change road speed, add a missing Point of Interest (POI), edit a POI, and report another error.

    2.0 out of 5 stars What they don't tell you on the box! 19 Jun 2011
    By unicorn
    Style Name:XXL IQR Edition - Europe
    I bought this unit because I wanted an up to date Euromap satnav. I needed several Euro countries and this unit had them all. I thought a new middle of the range TomTom should be fine. Indeed on receipt I fired it up and hey presto everything is good. I put the TomTom home software onto my computer and linked the Satnav with no problem. Then, the bit they don't tell you about. TomTom home found a new update and as the unit was new within 30 days or so I could download it. So I did. It took forever and then stated that my unit did not have enough space. The update was bigger than my TomTom could handle. How stupid is that? It is new. When you can buy an 8GB SD card for peanuts this unit has a maximum of 2GB storage and no card slot. Now either something went wrong or I pressed the wrong button but from that point on the TomTom was useless. I looked for help but all TomTom give are the usual directions to FQA's. Their FQA's are rubbish by the way. The best advice is always independent sites where people have no brand loyalty and say it like it is. I found one and after several long downloads and failures right at the ' literally' eleventh hour, managed to get the TOMTOM back. But not as it was, I could only choose a specific combination of regions due to size and not one combination covered all the countries I am going to. So I now have a Garmin to cover certain countries, as I would have to lose the UK for the TomTom to cover them. The choices are not good enough. We should be able to swap and change individual countries if we wish in order to tailor the Satnav. When are these manufacturer's going to wake up to that fact. My advice is to download the map updates directly to your computer and store them there. That way you can update, providing you have all night. Read more ›

    3.0 out of 5 stars Not What it says on the tin !! 19 July 2010
    Style Name:XXL IQR Edition - Europe
    I have owned 3 tomtom machines and all have struggled with the same problem.....internal memory is small for the full European map.

    There is no mention that the European map is has grown so large that the full map will no longer fit onto the 2gb flash drive. Tomtom home even tell's you your machines memory is too small for the full version and instead you are offer a zoned map of Europe that you must choose. (4 zones)

    I have frequently used my machines on holidays but the way the Europe map zones are split mean you can have U.K & Germany but not Spain or Italy.....or you can choose U.K & Spain but not Germany or Italy.

    On past machines I have worked around this by installing a 4gb SD card but some "bean counter" at Tomtom has decided a few pounds can be saved by doing away with the SD slot on most machines.
    Adding lots of POI, music or additional features Tomtom offer!! could be limited.
    Good points the TT has an easy to use interface and the map graphics are good but I paid for a full working map installed on the machine not my home computer. Removing the SD slot is a step back

    3.0 out of 5 stars Bad software design 9 July 2010
    By apnetz
    Style Name:XXL IQR Edition - Europe
    The TomTom XXL works as advertised, gets you from A to B. Problems arose when I tried to use the Map guarantee, the Home software told me there was a new map available for my device. When I went to download the map, it told me it was not compatible!! Logged a support ticket, they advised me to take a full backup (takes 1hr+ via USB) and then reinstall the software and remove the map from the device. After this the Home software told me there was no map available for my device. I then copied the map from my backup back to the device (1hr+ waiting time again). This got the device functionality back to its original state.

    I tried the download again, I got the error message again. I downloaded the map manually using the full URL listed in the error message. Then of course the new map would not fit on the device (2GB non-upgradeable memory on the XXL). I had no extras installed on it. There was a shortfall of 371MB!!

    The map download eventually downloaded from within the Home software, but again did not fit on the internal memory. Support then emailed me a long procedure to follow to manually copy the map onto the internal memory.

    This procedure left my TomTom unable to move past the startup logo stage. Even a hard reset did not solve the issue.

    So much hassle from something that was just out of the box!!! I have promptly returned it for a full refund.

    My suggestion, go for a model with a MircoSD card slot.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Good device, shame about everything else! 30 Sep 2010
    By Mr T
    Style Name:XXL IQR Edition - Europe
    I have to agree with a lot of what has been said in the one and two star reviews here as I had a load of issues starting up with this device.

    First of all, the box art and text was not in English. My guess is that the languages are Eastern European because I didn't recognise many of the letters, let alone the words. Then on opening the box imagine my surprise (not!) when I found the instructions book was in the same languages. So that was my first disappointed.

    On contacting 'Tom' at Amazon and advising I did NOT have access to a printer with my PC at home and did NOT have access to one at work, his suggestion was to go to the TomTom website, download the manual in English and print it. 2nd disappointment.

    So next I had to work out by reading from the manual on screen how to use thing. Let me tell you, working out how to use a satnav which has no satellite connectivity when it's placed next to your PC screen can be slow going and at times frustrating. That was disappointment number 3.

    Anyway, I finally got it working and decided to download the up to date maps. It's at this stage I would like to thank all those previous contributors to this feedback forum who left clues as to what to do. That's because it doesn't explain how to do it in the manual and it doesn't explain it on Tom Tom's website. Oh yes, there are instruction. But the up to date European all regions map is too big for the memory, so following the instructions on TomTom's website is a waste of time and effort.
