Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

Promising Start?

Although the Smart comes with 4GB of Flash storage and a MicroSD slot, don’t get too excited. The former can’t be accessed from your PC and the latter won’t work until a firmware update arrives later this year. There’s no Bluetooth either.

Faced with the options of not having traffic data on its entry-level devices, fitting a TMC receiver or migrating the excellent HD Traffic system to its cheaper units,TomTom has gone for the former. I’m not sure that was the right call when Mio will sell you a 4.3in PND with free TMC data for under £100.

Of course, the Start 20 does have advantages of its own. To begin with you get three very pleasant voices built-in so you don’t have to faff about downloading more if the default announcer grates on you.
