    The spec sheet at that site is wrong when it says'no' for text-to-speech. Obviosly, it is (hence the 'S' designation).

    I've played with that unit a bit and it's quite nice with the large (5") screen but be advised there is no sdhc slot for expansion beyond the internal 4 gigs.

    The screen has somewhat less glare than my 720, in my opinion.

    The spec sheet also states that it has the SiRF chipset. But I noticed that all the TomTom gps units their selling state that they have this chipset so thats probably wrong too I would assume. I have the regular TomTom XXL 540S with the 2gb flash memory. Is there any way to check what the chipset is without taking the thing apart?

    Yes, from the debug screen (press and hold Power-On).

    Thanks. I just didn't know where the debug screen was located at. I looked on the gps and then in TomTom Home but couldn't find it anywhere so I searched google and located the files & instructions from their web site.

    The gps chipset listed on my gps is: GL2 BCM4750. So its a Global Locate 2. The CPU is 266MHZ. RAM 64MB. Which should be exactly the same specs as the World Traveler edition. Except the World Traveler edition has a 4GB flash memory drive and maps of Europe.
