TOMTOM are probably saying nothing until they offload their stock onto unsuspecting buyers

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.

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.

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.

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

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