Cons

Provided adhesive mount is prone to malfunction - separate mounting unit is almost certainly required

All models include strange narration glitch that replaces each "0" with the word "west"

1 agrees

Stock narration voices are fairly low in quality - Garmin and Navigon units are much more human-like

The TomTom XXL 530 is one of two portable navigation devices released in the United States and Canada during October of 2009. It is an upgrade from the TomTom XL series, in that it features a larger 5” color touchscreen and upgraded routing technology. This new technology is based off of IQ Routes, which calculates the fastest travel time based on historical data—as in the amount of traffic that typically occurs on a road at a specific time. The 530S also utilizes a more user-friendly user menu with an elegant interface combined with optimized icons. Like its predecessors, however, the unit comes with the basics of any TomTom system, such as TomTom MapShare technology for modifying street names/directions/POIs; full maps of the US and Canada; and TomTom HOME, a free desktop application that keeps the unit updated at all times. Also note TomTom’s EasyPort integrated suction cup mount.
