TomTom has launched the new TomTom Start 20 series which combines an attractive design, larger screen size, and a new operating system for even smarter navigation.
“New sat nav users can benefit from enhanced safety and comfort, all wrapped up in a very stylish, easy-to-use package,” says Corinne Vigreux, managing director at TomTom. “No other sat nav provider offers such good looks and intelligent features in a range that is predominantly aimed at first-time buyers.”
The TomTom Start 20 series gives drivers a bigger and better view of their route. This is thanks to a choice of larger - 4.3” or 5” screens. They feature a new design that is also safe and practical. The orientation sensor within the devices, coupled with the fully integrated flip screen mount, lets drivers mount their device to their dashboard, automatically rotating the screen 180 degrees. All they need to add is a dashboard mounting disk.
TomTom executives tell us they have added two million kilometres of new roads to the maps in the Start 20 series, including roads in rural areas, enhancing graphics for built-up areas, water features and forests. The maps contain twice as many points of interest as before, and the POIs themselves are richer – offering details such as phone numbers and opening hours. Maps also feature IQ routes to give drivers reliable arrival times.
There are also speed camera warnings (where available and legal to do so ) to alert drivers to upcoming fixed speed camera locations, and the “Help Me” emergency menu to give drivers local emergency information quickly.
Prices run from the Start20 with a recommended retail price of €139.99 ranging up to the Start25 selling at €179.99.
