Thought I would pass long this pretty decent deal on a large screen GPS by TomTom.  Woot has the TomTom XXL 550 5-Inch GPS with IQ Routes & Premium Maps (refurbished) for just $54.99 plus $5 for shipping. Looks like it half off regular retail and about $30 dollars cheaper than some favored online bargain retailers. I will go on record and say that I have not used the TomTom XXL 550, but I will say that I have just recently upgraded my 4.3 inch GPS to a 5 inch and love it. I have had a lot of issues in rental cars with windshields that are very swept forwards to the engine compartment which put the GPS farther away and much more difficult to see. So getting a 5 inch device made life a lot easier.

Check out the press release below for all the specs on the TomTom XXL 550 5-Inch GPS with IQ Routes & Premium Maps or just head on over to Woot and grab one of these while they are still available.
