TomTom Launches the TomTom ONE XL•S

~ New model features text-to-speech for spoken street names, and Map Share™ technology on an extra wide screen ~

Concord, MA – October 16, 2007 – TomTom, the world’s largest navigation solutions provider, today reveals the TomTom ONE XL•S. The new TomTom ONE XL•S is the first product in the TomTom ONE XL range to offer text-to-speech technology, enabling street names and places to be read aloud as part of the spoken navigation instructions. The TomTom ONE XL•S also offers the exclusive TomTom Map Share™ technology and unique ‘HELP ME!’ features on a 4.3 inch screen.

TomTom Map Share™ is a proprietary map improvement technology that enables users to easily and instantly improve maps. Via TomTom HOME, TomTom's free desktop software application, Map Share™ users can share map improvements made by the community of Map Share™ users - so that they always have the most up-to-date maps available in the industry. Map Share™ users can also respond in real time to changes in the road network and, with just a few simple taps on their screen, can correct the maps on their device accordingly.

The extensive 'Help Me!' menu includes information about the nearest car repair service center, police station, or hospital, and allows users to either locate or call the closest emergency service provider no matter where they are. It also allows users to quickly identify their exact location, so that they can provide this information to emergency assistance providers and receive help more quickly.

“The TomTom ONE XL•S brings two great technologies, text-to-speech for spoken instructions and TomTom Map Share™ for the most up-to-date maps, to our ONE XL platform,” said TomTom Inc president Jocelyn Vigreux. “The TomTom ONE XL•S complements our portfolio and gives our customers even more products to choose from.”

Pricing and Availability TomTom ONE XL•S will be available starting at the end of October for $399.95 at major retailers across the US and Canada.
