TomTom Australia Outs Massive New GPS Unit

They say that it’s not the size that matters, it’s how you use it. While that might be true, it doesn’t hurt to be packing a monster…screen. Monster screen (what did you think I was talking about?). TomTom’s new Via 620 has size covered, measuring in at six inches of shiny navigation real estate.

It’s the biggest GPS unit the company has made to date, and it dwarfs most devices already out on the local market. TomTom tells us it’s to improve safety:

Sharper screen clarity and bigger buttons mean drivers enjoy a clear view of their route and safer, easier navigation.

It’s also designed to suit big cars like the Ute and the ever popular, road-eclipsing four-wheel drive vehicles that seem to clog roads every peak hour.

The Via 620 will get you free daily updates from the TomTom community and three years worth of quarterly updates from the company itself free of charge.

Now that we have smartphones like the Galaxy Note, do we need massive GPS units?
