Satellite Navigation Buyers Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

The TomTom Start 50 5” GPS Sat Nav with UK, ROI & Western Europe Maps and 1 Year Speed Camera Updates gives you an easy and comprehensive way to navigate the UK and Western Europe, plus there’s a scratch card included that gives you one year of free updates for fixed speed cameras.

The best view on the road

With a 5” screen, this TomTom Start 50 GPS provides a large, clear view on the road ahead and on the important features and functions you need at your fingertips.

Since it uses touch technology, the display makes controlling your sat nav really easy. A one-touch interface gives you literal tap-and-go functionality, so you can just tap where you want to go on the map and start driving.

Get the latest maps

The TomTom Start 50 Sat Nav comes with Lifetime Maps of the UK, Ireland and Western Europe, so you can always drive with the latest map.

You’ll be able to download at least four full map updates per year for the life of your product, keeping you up to speed with changes to the road ahead.

Find where you’re going faster

Use the great Quick Search function to find your destination quickly. Start typing in where you want to go and the Start 50 will immediately start to find it. It’s an intuitive and convenient way to navigate precisely while saving time.

You’ll also have the option to search by co-ordinates – use latitude and longitude points to precisely get to where you want to be. Helping you save more time and hassle is the My Routes function, which allows for direct saving, retrieval and editing of routes you travel most often.

Finer navigational details

This TomTom Start 50 5” GPS Sat Nav with UK, ROI and Western Europe Maps will guide you both generally and in close quarters. Advanced Lane Guidance is a real help in busy or unfamiliar areas, clearly showing which lane you need to take at important junctions.

Find Points of Interest around you to stay organised and adaptable en route – the GPS will find petrol stations, hotels, businesses and millions of other pre-loaded POIs.

What are free Lifetime Maps?

Sat nav devices or smartphone apps with free Lifetime Maps allow you to download full updates of your map every year – stay up-to-date with changes to road networks, addresses and points of interest, as well as new businesses, road changes and junction alterations.

Updates are released at least four times a year and apply to the map that’s pre-installed on your sat nav or included with your smartphone app. Geographical coverage and features will still match the original. Updates are free of charge and provided for the useful life of the device (i.e. as long as the manufacturer supports it with software updates, services, content or accessories).

Packed with these and many other clever mapping features, the TomTom Start 50 5” GPS Sat Nav with UK, ROI and Western Europe Maps and 1 Year Speed Camera Updates makes driving and finding your way so much easier, so much faster and so much more intuitive.
