TomTom Start announced for motorists on a budget

TomTom has launched a new sat nav that drops a few of the more advanced TomTom features in exchange for a lower price tag.With a simplified menu, the

With a simplified menu, the TomTom Start is aimed at motorists just looking for a bit of a hand getting from A to B as quickly as possible.

This means you’ll get the TomTom IQ Routes which will judge the fastest way to get to your destination, while Map Share will allow users to share map corrections so you never get stuck up the wrong street.

This does mean users won’t get the advanced handiness of LIVE services such as traffic updates, but you will still get safety camera alerts and all the Points of Interests already pre-installed on the device.

However, the user interface is not the only thing that’s been simplified on the TomTom Start – the design is clean and simple as well, with only one button.

Made up mostly of its 3.5-inch screen, the Start is available in a choice of black or white, with six different StartSkins colours available separately to customise it with if you so wish.

The new addition to the TomTom family will cost you £119 for UK maps, or £139 for a European map, while the StartSkins will cost £14.99 each.

We’ll be getting hands on with it later on so keep it locked for some hands on snaps later on.
