TomTom Start 62 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The TomTom Start 62 is an entry-level sat nav with a six-inch screen. It lacks some of the features of pricier models, including traffic data, but can it get you from A to B without stress? Read on to find out.

TOMTOM Start 62 6" Sat Nav - with UK, ROI & Full Europe Maps

 

Much improved over my old Tom Tom gps It starts much quicker and so far the battery seems much better. I have only used it once but it seems very good.

No nothing so far

1st use, easy to use, easy to see screen (when sun not on it)

1st use, sun glared screen at times, may just need to play around with position on dash. Quite a large screen, obscures view occasionally (sat on middle of dash)
