Editorial Review

Amazon.com Product Description Boasting a 4.3-inch widescreen LCD for easier viewing in the car, the TomTom XL 330 and XL 330S features the plug and play ease of use, rock-solid navigation, and sleek design we’ve come to expect from TomTom. Both models come pre-loaded with highly accurate maps for the United States and Canada, with TomTom Map Share technology that enables you to instantly modify street names, street direction, and POIs on your own device.

Both models share the same navigation and user interface features. Howerver, the XL 330S adds text-to-speech, which means instead of hearing “turn right in 50 feet,” you’ll hear “turn right in 50 feet at Ohio Street.”

TomTom’s XL 330 series GPS devices have a 4.3-inch widescreen display.

Itching to try out a new restaurant, or setting off on a road trip to locate the best donuts on the west coast? Now, it’s easy to search for locations on Google Maps or Mapquest, then transfer the addresses directly to your TomTom.
  1. Install TomTom HOME on your compter
  2. Hook up your TomTom to the computer via its USB port
  3. Search for the location you want.
  4. Click the Send link in the info window for the address. That will bring up a popup “Send to” form.

The address will instantly transfer to your TomTom device, the point will be saved as one of your favorites, and you can navigate to it or view it on a map just like with any other favorite.



Important Product Information

This is a refurbished GPS. Refurbished generally means that the unit has been returned to the manufacturer, who brings the navigator back to like-new conditions. Some refurbished GPS devices might contain cosmetic blemishes. There is a six-month guarantee on parts and labor on TomTom refurbished products.


QuickGPSfix

Starting up can seem like a slow business, particularly if you’re in a hurry, because the GPS receiver needs to know exactly where each GPS satellite is to calculate your location. But satellites only broadcast their positions once every 30 seconds. So if any of their signals are interrupted–for example, by passing high buildings–the whole position-fixing process has to repeat itself again and again until the perfect fix is achieved. QuickGPSfix takes a smarter approach.

QuickGPSfix can speed up the time it takes to fix your GPS position by downloading the latest satellite data via an Internet connection. Just connect your TomTom device to your computer, and TomTom HOME automatically downloads “QuickGPSfix”–a special GPS data file that helps your TomTom fix your position quicker, even when the GPS signal is weak or partially blocked.

This unique, free service–which comes as standard with the GO (920/720/520/910/710/510) and ONE (XL/New Edition)–helps you fix your position and get navigating faster than ever.

On the road or no access to TomTom HOME?
Get the same “QuickGPSfix” data by simply connecting to any TomTom PLUS service, using a wireless data connection (GO 920/720/520/910/710/510 and ONE XL/3RD EDITION and 2nd Edition). As soon as a connection is established, the “QuickGPSfix” data is automatically updated.

Note: QuickGPSfix data has limited validity. So to keep on getting a faster position-fix, re-connect your device at least once a week.

To minimize the amount of data sent over your wireless data connection, this automatic update is only carried out if the data on your device is over 5 days old. The associated data usage of this service is less than 10 Kb per connection. Please contact your mobile service provider to determine the exact costs. To disable this automatic update, just select ‘Disable Auto QuickGPSfix’ on your TomTom device.




Fun Extras to Personalize Your TomTom

New smart and fun extras to personalize users’ devices:
  • record driving instructions in your own voice;
  • buy fun voices from TomTom;
  • exchange files (of photos, songs, HTML documents, etc.) between your GO and any other Bluetooth-enabled device (laptop, phone, other TomToms);
  • select a favorite car icon on the screen;
  • load, store, and preview photos from your digital camera; and
  • enjoy music with the built-in MP3 player (earphones connector available via an optional SD card).




TomTom Traffic

With an optional RDS-TMC Traffic Receiver accessory, you can get traffic information from the RDS-TMC Traffic service, which is delivered over unused FM radio channels.
Traffic information is fully integrated into the TomTom navigation experience.
The RDS-TMC receiver is available as an accessory for the GO 930/730/530, 920/720/520, 910/710/510, ONE 3rd edition, ONE XL, ONE (30 series) and XL (30 series).

The RDS-TMC receiver accessory comes with a 1-year free subscription to the TMC traffic service.

With some TomTom models, an RDS-TMC Traffic Receiver is included in the box. This is indicated by the addition of “T” or “Traffic” to the model name. An example is “ONE Traffic”.
