Since that “Mecca” of all US retailers, the famous Black Friday, is almost upon us, the majority of CE manufacturers that are active on the American market are beginning to prepare some special offerings for this occasion, hoping to bolster their sales, which have already been adversely affected by the economic crisis. And that's exactly the case with TomTom, which has just introduced two new PNDs especially for this occasion, featuring a set of more or less basic features and some extremely attractive price points.
The two devices in question are the TomTom
ONE 125 SE and the TomTom XL 325 SE, both of which offer some of the features that TomTom has become famous for.
So, for example, both PNDs sport the “text-to-speech
” technology, as well as the TomTom Map Share technology, which helps users instantly modify street names, street directions, points of interest and more on their devices and benefit from corrections made by others.
Also, both of them are traffic-ready (via an optional RDS-TMC receiver) and are accompanied by TomTom HOME, a free desktop application that keeps users’ devices up-to-date at all times. New maps or software versions can also be downloaded.
Now that we've seen what these two navigators
have in common, let's take a quick look at their particular features. So, the TomTom ONE 125 SE features a 3.5-inch touchscreen, preloaded maps of the US, millions of preloaded Points of Interest, as well as the company's Fold and Go EasyPort Mount. The TomTom XL 325 SE, on the other hand, is slightly larger, featuring an extra-wide, 4.3-inch touchscreen, while the rest of the features are more or less the same as in the case of the previous model.
As mentioned right from the start, the pricing for these things is set at a low-enough level to make even people who are still not quite decided about purchasing a certain GPS model rush in and get it. So, for this Black Friday, the TomTom ONE 125 SE will retail for $59, while the XL 325 SE will be available for just $89, which, indeed, is a very good offering.
