TomTom Start 60

 

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. The TomTom...

Big screen, easy to use

No Bluetooth, no Live Services, battery is poor

The TomTom Start 60 is the company's biggest satnav yet. Had it released this device five years ago we would have been aghast at the size of the screen. Now, as mobile phone screens get bigger and bigger, 6 inches seems right for a GPS.

Simple ; no frills UI ; Does its one job well ; Search intuitive and logical

No traffic alerts ; No Bluetooth/app integration ; Poor touchscreen

TOMTOM Start 60 review

 

The Start 60 is a colourful and helpful satnav system, but it has a slow, jerky interface

If you’re looking for a great-value satnav that’s easy to use and can provide you with plenty of information, such as the location of petrol stations, hotels and car parks, then you should buy the TomTom Start 60. However, you will need to be a little...

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

The TomTom Start 60 is a 6-inch satellite navigation device and an array of road mapping features including fuel-efficient routes, speed camera warnings, spoken street names, alternative routes and more. It has a battery life of 2 hours when not...

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. TomTom Start 60 is tagged with TomTom,...

Had enough.

Large screen - check. Not much else though. This has been my third TomTom and probably my last. They are getting progressively worse at finding postcode destinations and the mapping is OK at best.The audio directions are not excellent - they are...

TomTom Start 60

I have owned several portable Sat Navs both Garmin and TomTom. I bought the Start 60 because of the screen size, at 6 inches it is one of the largest portables and the benefit of this is obviously that the map image is larger, however a second...
