TomTom upgrades beginners' satnav
Lane guidance at last
TomTom has revamped its Start satnav for beginners.
The new model, called the Start 2, takes the basic approach of the original - reviewed here  - and adds lane guidance, spoken street names and support for RDS-TMC traffic information.
TomTom's Start 2: keeping it simple
The latter, we should point out, only works if you have a suitable RDS-TMC receiver add-on and a subscription to the service, both sold separately.
What you do get in the box is a 3.5in screen satnav with a built in - but removable - windscreen mount. It presents just two menu settings - Plan Route and Browse Map - so you get straight to charting your journey without the faff.
Windscreen suction included
The TomTom Start 2  will be available from the beginning of April priced at £119 for the device with a regional map and £139 for the device with a Europe-wide maps. ®
