XXL 540 Discontinued

Having purchased a XXL540 just 18 months ago, I now find it is discontinued.  WHAT A CROCK

 

WHY WOULD YOU EVER BUY ANOTHER TOMTOM PRODUCT?????  I CERTAINLY WON'T

That model is still listed on the OZ site:

Re: XXL 540 Discontinued

Personally, I would jump on an XXL 540 if I wanted one, or the newer models were too pricey for my budget.

 

The big difference is the screen is not as good as many of the newest models, but it's still a good screen, and it's a great device overall. My very similar, but smaller XL 340's have very few glitches during operation these days (unlike when I first got my first one). They are worth every penny of their current market price in my opinion, and there's certainly no shame in buying an XXL 540.

Re: XXL 540 Discontinued

I have had an XXL 540 TM for about two months, and yes I bought it on close out, but it works great, and I feel lucky to have gotten it. The screen response could be better, but it has all the features I wanted and some I didn't realize I needed.

Re: XXL 540 Discontinued

I just bought an XXL 550 and it does not have the Itinerary features !!

Does the XXL 540 S have the Itinerary features?

Re: XXL 540 Discontinued

More info: My intention is to use Tyre to transfer Google Maps routes to the TomTom. I got the XXL 550 home and was able to transfer the routes to it. Then discovered it does not have the menu choices to access the route/Itinerary that were loaded. Sigh...

 

Does the XXL 540 series have this Itinerary ability blocked out as well?.

I believe the all the 540's have the Itinerary freature. I don't think the Easy Menu like the 550 do. The 540S is the most basic model and would not have the Life Time Maps nor the Life Time Traffic updates.  T = Traffic; M = Maps; TM = both. The best way to check for Itinerary is to look at the on-line manual for your model. If there are not instructions for it you do not have it.

Re: XXL 540 Discontinued

An interesting thing about the manual is that the XXL 550/540 manual has the Itinerary section. But the XXL 550 does not have the Itinerary feature available. So I was not sure about the XXL 540

Re: XXL 540 Discontinued

Actually the XXL530/540 share a manual, the 550's is separate.
