TomTom start


Now there's one less thing for you to worry about – The Start's stripped back interface and feature count makes it a joy to use. It's also easy to fit to your windscreen and stays there. You can even opt for swappable, colourful covers, if that's your bag.


Our biggest bugbear is that Start can sometimes get confused when whipping around busy city streets – but that's not always the fault of the hardware. The Start could definitely do with a better quality loudspeaker – the current one manages to make voices sound both distorted and tinny.


Given the price and its drop-dead simple feature set the TomTom Start's quite an accomplishment. We'd rather have this than some of the other more complex sat navs frankly. It really is that good.
