Identical to the One Europe 22, the XL Europe 31 differs in only two ways:

  • It offers European coverage with an additional 9 countries (Slovakia, Slovenia, Liechtenstein, Estonia, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Latvia).
  • Its screen is in 16/9 format and measures 4.3 inches (11 cm).

For the other characteristics which are the same, please see our complete article on the One Europe 22.
3/5 TomTom XL Europe 31 DigitalVersus 2008-06-24 00:00:00

Pros

  • New very practical mount of minimal size
  • Simple to use
  • Compactness
  • Strong speakers

Cons

  • No multimedia functions
  • No advanced functions (Bluetooth, TMC, IQ Routes, etc.)
  • No software improvements compared to former versions
  • Only a single waypoint possible between starting and end points
  • Not as fast as previous versions (reactivity and trip calculation)

Conclusion

Without revolutionizing the ''former Ones'', the new One Europe 31 adds new and very practical mount and a strong speaker. Otherwise, there is a loss of reactivity. It's still an excellent PND with amazing ease of use but services are at a minimum.

OUR SCORE 3/5
