    Tomtom XXL satnav question

    Ok so i just got back from my local Halfords store and i spotted a tomtom XXL with Europe maps for £179.99 which i'll be picking up soon, the guy said there was an actual Hard drive installed on these models, is this correct if so what size, i did notice that there was a 2gb map installed already so im looking at a minimum of a 2gb but i always thought it was flash memory and not an actual HDD in these devices?


    thanks

    The 530 and 540 comes with a 2gb hard drive, they do make a world traveler version of the 540 that has us, canada, mexico, and europe maps. This version has a 4gb hard drive installed. Check to see if it says world traveler or which maps are installed.

    Halfords:
    1. XXL - 5' screen, 2Gb internal, live services, maps: UK&RoI + EU - 179.99
    2. XL2 - 4.3' screen, 2Gb internal, no live, maps: UK&RoI + EU - 159.99
    3. XL2 - 4.3' screen, 2Gb internal, no live, maps: UK&RoI - 139.99
    4. XL - 4.3' screen, 2Gb internal, live services, maps: UK&RoI + EU - 179.99
    5. XL - 4.3' screen, 2Gb internal, live services, maps: UK&RoI - 149.99
    So if you're not big fan of live services and 5' screen take nr3 - XL2 regional ...
