A great navigator with some excellent features – does good.

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.

This product did him a ‘right turn’. It was a birthday present for a new driver. They have found it invaluable. No wrong turns yet, nor nasty surprises.

TomTom Start 50 5-Inch Sat Nav with Western Europe Maps and Lifetime Map Updates – Black : The battery will not hold a charge for more than a very short time. Not long enough to go on a journey. Needs to be plugged in all the time when being used.

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.
