TomTom has unveiled Start - an entry-level satnav designed for occasional drivers or those who haven't used a satnav device before.
The lightweight device has a 3.5in screen and has just two buttons on its user interface, 'Plan route' and ‘Browse map'. The TomTom Start comes with a semi-fixed mount and the overall unit is compact enough to be slipped straight into your pocket.
The TomTom Start comes with IQ Routes - a TomTom-specific feature that takes into account the time of travel and plots a route based on likely traffic levels. The Start also has a Map Share function. This allows users to correct or update mapping information via the TomTom web portal.
Users can even personal their TomTom Start with one of six coloured changeable skins that are priced at £14.99 each. The TomTom Start costs £119 when bundled with regional maps and £139 for those that want European maps.
