TomTom Start 60 review

 

Sat nav gets a bigger screen but reasonable price

Accurate navigation ; Clear 6-inch display ; Best satnav voice ; European coverage ; Daily map updates

Fiddly mounting system ; Too many alerts by default

The TomTom Start 60 Europe is easily one of the best sat navs we've reviewed. The large screen, clear navigation and accuracy of the maps makes it a joy to use. The voice navigation, complete with spoken street names, is calm and clear, and it's easy...

TomTom Start 60 review

 

With mobile phone navigation apps slowly gobbling the traditional satnav market, GPS makers like TomTom have to continue to develop new ways of making their devices still relevant in a world where many of the competing products are free.

Big screen, easy to use

No Bluetooth, no Live Services, battery is poor

If you need to get from A to B and don't like the idea of using your tiddly mobile phone's screen then this is probably going to be the answer

TomTom's Start 60 goes one inch better than the 5in displays available elsewhere.

Clear 6in screen with good viewing angles ; Speed camera locations ; European maps

No live services ; Not quite budget pricing

. Pressing on the screen calls up the menu, which has just six icons on the first page, rather than the pages of uniformly weighted options found in previous generations. You can navigate to an address or full UK postcode. There's a traditional...

TomTom Start 60 Europe review

 

The TomTom Start 60 Europe's large screen is a boon. It makes navigating easy and greatly aids the process of working through the menus. The magnified junctions are a big help when approaching complex layouts and the maps are properly comprehensive....

Large screen ; Spoken road names ; Large points of interest database

Some camera warnings out of date on this test device

The TomTom Start 60 is a far better option than a smart phone for car-based navigation and it brings the large-screen convenience of a new car's built-in sat-nav device to older models.

Do you really need a satnav with a 6in screen? We find out if TomTom's huge Start 60 is worth the extra cash

Outstanding navigation and a lovely screen, but a little on the expensive side

One of the first things you’ll about the TomTom Start 60 is its generous display. Measuring 6-inches diagonally, it’s large enough so that you won’t have to squint to make out any of the routes, or gaze in for a closer look. Everything is just right...

We don’t have too many gripes but if there are some to be had, it’s that battery life could be a lot longer. The TomTom Start 60 will struggle to overcome journeys lasting a few hours without being plugged in for the whole journey

The TomTom Start 60, despite battery concerns when not plugged in is still one of the better direction-giving devices around. The screen, menu, and ease of use are all top-notch, make for an excellent sat-nav.

Bought this as a replacement for a very old Tomtom, after a lot of research. Had read bad reviews of Tomtom's website, but had no difficulties with it, including switching off the French camera warnings, which worked perfectly on our recent trip to the...
