Does the XL 350 have longitude and latitude capabilities?

Marked as answer: Traylaw on 23 October 2011, 03:46

No the XL350 and XXL550 has what is called "Easy Menu" which does not have the ability to enter coordinates. The XL340 and XXL540 has a standard menu which has this ability.

    I have just replaced my old TomTom One with a TomTom XL IQ Routes Edition2  and don't seem to be able to enter a location in Lat & Long, surely this can't be right!

    Try the following to verify that you are able to navigate to a coördinates location:

     

    • Tap on the navigation screen;
    • Tap on 'navigate to';
    • Scroll through the menu when there are multiple pages;
    • A button with 'Latitude & longitude' is available when the device has the function;

    agree..

    xl350 can not go to (or find) places using long-lat coordenates.

    I have just brought what is now my third Tomtom (XL2) and was horrified to find I had bought a GPS that does not accept coordinates! Both of my much older previous units did, I see NOW the option is on the higher spec units, why have Tomtom gone backwards; all other electronics move forward and things do more and more but not Tomtom.

    They have not gone backwards, they have just provided two versions for several model types. Example the XXL540 and XXL550 are the same priced units the differences between the two is that one model XXL540 has the standard menu where the XXL550 has the easy menu.  Some people want the simpler "Easy" menu and some want the standard menu.

     

    While I don't disagee that the two menu types is a bad thing. I think a software switch to select between the two menus would have been a better marketing feature as oppose to have two different models.

    My old version One had this option, I guess that Tomtom's idea is to make the units cheaper but it can only save them pennies, why not sell units with the full menu but make the small menu the default. I do think this is my last Tomtom and Garmin is now the way to go.

    Just dropped in to say thanks to TomTom for adding the ability to navigate to coordinates and to use them to store POI's, this was on the latest software download. So thank you TomTom :smileylol:

    TomTom XL IQ Routes Edition S

     

    I found out how to enter Latitude and Longitude co-ordinates, but your GPS must support them.

     

    PS           The manual was really helpful... the Co-ordinates sections was completely blank

     

    • Select the Browse Map menu item
    • Select the Options button
    • Select the Advanced button
    • Tick the Coordinates box
    • Select done

     

    Now, go to the Main Menu 2 of 2

     

    • Select the Browse Map menu item
    • Select the Find button
    • Select the Arrow or next menu button
    • Select the Latitude and Longitude menu item
    • Enter the co-ordinates in the default format of (Compass Direction_Degrees_Minutes.Fractions-of-Minutes):

    -          S 25* 44.334

    -          E 26* 30.087
