Our Comment

The Start is the latest entry-level European in-car sat-nav from TomTom. Preloaded with Ireland, UK and Europe maps the modus operandi here is to 'keep it simple'. This is a basic sat-nav at a very affordable price but it has features of the more expensive models in the TomTom range - IQ Routes and MapShare.

Earlier versions of the Start do not contain a postcode search feature but this is now available through a firmware update from TomTom Home.
