She is very pleased with it. Bought as a birthday present for my daughter, she is very pleased with it.

Excellent product and delivery service. Fantastic, i have bought this for my grandaughter after passing her driving test, as i jave the earlier version ,start 60although it is the same size, the screen display seems bigger , and faster too. The display layout is also different to the old start 60,but all in all it is a better version of a super satnav, so easy to use. Delivery was excellent ordered friday on prime , got it midday saturday. Just brilliant, well done amazon.

Good software but lacks map compatibility. I’m not having much success with sat navs at the moment. I bought a garmin version – a make i’ve used for years only to run into the misery that is their online software system at which point i thought i’d give tomtom a go. And whilst not quite as well made physically as the equivalent garmin it was super easy to connect to my computer and their servers for updates. I wanted this to take with me to saudi as driving there is a combination of misery, seat of your pants excitement and confusion as to where you are supposed to go. So i duly logged on and went to buy the download maps at which point it asked me to input the device serial number to find out if it’s compatible with their download. Nowhere on their site, packaging of selling info tells me that a brand new current model sat nav isn’t compatible with their own downloadable maps. Surely it can’t be beyond the wit of man to have a map with a list of compatible devices?. The very fact that you have to put the serial number in first is bonkers because the only way to know if it will work is to buy the damn thing first. Generally not quite as good as the similar priced garmin in build,m screen quality and clarity but perfectly acceptable. The plus over garmin is that their online software works – with the proviso that you have a compatible device that is. So to round up, tomtom knocks garmin into a cocked hat with regard to their online updating system because it works with minimal fuss. But zero out of ten for the fact they have not made clear what maps are compatible with their products.

Much better all round than a garmin. Just returned a garmin as it didn’t keep up with the driving and couldn’t find even local addresses. Should have gone for a tom tom first (just like my last one). Got 6″ size and really easy to see and easy to work.

It’s big and updates the view of the road reasonably quickly as your motoring along. Lane guidance is intuitive and verbal instructions are useful. I haven’t updated maps or speed cameras yet but i’m assuming it’ll be straight forward otherwise i’ll complain bitterly on here when i return. One thing of annoyance is the suction cup that attaches to the window is not as good as my ancient tomtom from around 15-20 years ago, nor my other half’s broken garmin. Instead of the usual technique of pushing the suction cup to the window and pulling/pushing a plunger to create the vacuum you screw the outer rim of a disc. It’s not as easy and does not seem to create as strong a grip.

The sat nav has worked without problem. I have bought a non-slip mat to place the sat nav on rather than mounting it to the front window.
