TomTom ships new mid-range PNDs in the U.S.
TomTom yesterday announced two new devices for the North American market, TomTom ONE 140 series and TomTom XL 340 series, the equivalent to the recently announced European PNDs TomTom ONE IQ Routes and TomTom XL IQ Routes. Both devices are available with or without text-to-speech functionality (spoken street name). These devices will be in retailers across the United States and Canada in April 2009 and they will cost $179.95 for the TomTom ONE 140; $199.95 for TomTom ONE 140S; $229.95 for the TomTom XL 340 and $249.95 for the TomTom XL 340S.

“The new TomTom ONE and TomTom XL devices strengthen our mid-range product offering considerably through the combination of first-class navigation and competitive price points,” said Jocelyn Vigreux, president of TomTom Inc. “IQ Routes allows drivers to take those routes that only well-informed locals know. It takes away the stress of not knowing where to go and when you will arrive, as well as gives you a faster route in up to 35% of all cases. In addition, our Advanced Lane Guidance feature gives drivers the information they need to drive more safely and more confidently when dealing with complex road junctions.”

All these new products integrate the mexican map data from Tele Atlas in addition to the United states and Canada,
