IQ Routes Technology

7 Million POI

You can easily search for restaurants, gas stations, hotels, ATM machines and more when you travel.

Traffic Ready

Despite all the great features above, the TomTom XL 340S has its downsides as described below:

Users’ Complaints

  • Upon checking for a available map update, the website said there was one available and the download started. After a few minutes, it said there was a problem with the map download and the website said that the update was too big for the unit. The update wiped out the original map.
  • XL 340S has no SD disk for easier map upgrades. It only has 2gb internal memory which makes it impossible for larger than 2gb map update.
  • The map is difficult to read on top of the dashboard in bright sunlight.
  • A few times it said to keep right when the map showed to keep left.
  • After map download, unit started freezing and rebooting itself.
