pocketgpsworld.comTomTom have launched two new entry-level devices. The 'One IQ-Routes' and the 'XL IQ-Routes', as their names suggest, both feature the latest TeleAtlas maps with IQ-Routes functionality as well as Lane Guidance. Both devices feature West- and Middle-Europe maps as well as 'petrol prices trial bundle'.

More information regarding availability and pricing will be posted as soon as we have it!

Euro 159 and 199 respectively (Sorry, couldn't use my Euro key combo this morning.) Pricing on the existing One and XL models will be reduced around 30% to keep the new releases in line with the entry level market.

Ok, to clarify the issue of availability it has now been confirmed that these will be available initially in Germany, France, Belgium, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Australia and New Zealand only.

A UK/Holland launch will come later although we can perhaps speculate on why only those two countries were omitted from this launch?

Perhaps because, like in NA, there are still too many low-end models in TT warehouses that haven't made it out to the distributors. Once the inventory clears some more (assuming I'm correct), I expect them to be available in GB and NA as well.

Nope, at least that's not the reason I'm hypothesising. TomTom have rolled out HD in Holland and UK first in the past, I'm wondering if maybe there could be a model bundled with the long awaited HD accessory coming to our shores?

There's been some speculation that TT has had a change of heart and may introduce the HD accesory/receiver for the x20/x30 line after all. Sales of the x40 line have been disappointing according to a couple of sources. But I don't know why that would have anything to do with the XL or One IQ release. But I don't have an "inside line" to TT, so anything I might write is my opinion only. Maybe they have the entry level XL-Live in mind for GB?

Same wahy you get the Speed Camera Data from TT. Downloaded through TT Home as per the x40 range most likely. Although it won't be able to update over GPRS like the x40 once you are away from your PC....

Via TT Home.

This what I wondered, the x40s use the cell network to update, won't the prices be out of date if you don't connect via TT home all the time? Does it download the entire country's petrol prices, or just locally to you? Just curious, I'm not getting one. ;)

Well the x40's use HOME as well although they can update live also of course.

Petrol prices don't change daily so I don't see the issue? In fact the price data supplied to TomTom isn't updated daily all the time (it can be 3 days old) so HOME is perfectly suitable as a delivery mechanism?

It downloads prices for the maps you have, in my case UK and Europe. When i was away this weekend i could have updated the prices via the GPRS connection. However, to address your concern regarding the up to date-iveness of the prices they come with the caveat that they may already be upto 5 days out of date already!!!
