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.

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 Start 60


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

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

No regrets


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...
