TomTom Start2 announced for UK

With spoken road names and advanced lane guidance

TomTom has announced its latest entry level sat nav - with the TomTom Start2 'shifting car navigation up a gear'.

TomTom bills the Start2 as having premium features to its entry-level device which includes things like advanced lane guidance, spoken street names and compatibility with RDS-TMC traffic.

The latter offers traffic information to the device, including what's happened, the area it affects and the estimated delay - if you have the separate receiver and subscription of course.

The device also features TomTom's IQ Routes and is available for £119 with a regional map or £139 with European maps with a UK release date of April 1.
