TomTom x40 Features Comparison Table

30th October 2008

x40 Boxesby Darren Griffin

 

The new x40 range offers a vast and confusing range of features. Although the below table is necessarily complex it does indicate what is and is not available on each of the three models.

 

As has already been observed, the 940 is the only model to offer .mp3 playback from music stored internally as well as the only model to come with an FM Transmitter out of the box.

 

We are seeking clarification on some points presented here, if you have qny queries please post in the forum thread linked at the foot of this page.
