The Bottom Line The TomTom XXL 540 S improves on the TomTom XL line by keeping the features we love while improving screen visibility; but the bigger size comes with compromised portability. The TomTom One XL offers ease of use, accurate directions, and a spacious touch screen, but you can get more for your money from other portable navigation systems. The TomTom GO Live 1535M's is a solidly performing GPS device and its app integration for search is a nice first, but that's hardly this PND's strongest feature. The TomTom Via 1535 TM offers many features and services to increase driver safety and routing efficiency. Garmin's formula for entry-level GPS devices doesn't change much with the new Nuvi 50, but small tweaks, a lower price, and a massive screen enhance value.
