TomTom Brings Cheap GPSs To Walmart for Black Friday

TomTom One 125 GPS

Smartphones might be infringing on dedicated GPS devices—and TomTom itself is helping fuel the transition with things like its iPhone routing application. However, TomTom is not above selling some good old-fashioned GPS units, and to that end is teaming up with mega-retailer Walmart to offer two new GPS units for Black Friday. And the price tags are definitely designed to get people up and standing in line in the cold and snow at 5 AM, eager to participate in the Great American Consumer Experience.

The two new TomTom GPS units will be available exclusively from Walmart. The TomTom ONE 125 SE features preloaded maps of the United States with millions of points-of-interest, a 3.5-inch touchscreen display, spoken instructions for hands-free navigation, and a Fold and Go mount that can be detached from a vehicle and stashed in a bag or pocket. The TomTom XL 325 SE offers the same maps and basic capabilities, but features a 4.3-inch touchscreen display with a widescreen orientation.

Both GPS units feature TomTom’s Help Me feature to enable drivers to get to safety and emergency services in the event of an accident or other trouble, and can be hooked up to optional traffic and fuel pricing services to help users plan their routes better. If new maps are released within 30 days of purchase, users will be able to download them from TomTom Home for free, and both GPS units support TomTom Map Share that enables users to update maps with new street names, directions, points of interest, and more, and share those changes with other TomTom GPS users; in turn, users can benefit from updates and corrections made by other TomTom users.

And here’s the kicker: Walmart will be offering the TomTom One 125 SE for just $59, and the TomTom XL 325 SE for $89 on Black Friday, November 27. Walmarts across the United States will open at 5 AM.
