Aren’t GPS sales on the decline? I can say without a doubt that if I had a car I’d pick one up. I’m sorry but Google Maps is not perfect and even if I had a BlackBerry with GPS, I still wouldn’t rely on it. I was in Seattle last week and had a bitch of a time getting around with just Google Maps.

TomTom announced this morning a revamped One and XL GPS devices. Some new fangled windshield mount dubbed EasyPort can be taken with you wherever you go. The audio systems from previous models have been tweaked so that you can raise the volume of the device without it getting distorted and hear it above traffic. The higher end models include text-to-speech. The One sports a 3.5-inch touch screen LCD while the XL comes with a 4.3-inch screen. Both will be available some time next month. Specs and pricing after the jump.
