Summary: I would pay more for a higher version of device. However it serves my very basic needs. The warning before turnings or junctions, are not early enough though. The very bad thing about it is it always ask you for new updating but you have not a clue why it always ask you almost every day about the '2' updating for, and you have to plug it into the computer almost everyday and you have to pay an annual charge for the speed camera updating.
Summary: This Tom Tom is simple to use and has a clear screen. The directions are good although in City Centres it can be a bit slow with its instructions. It has been great to use here in the UK but struggled in Spain when we were entering Road names rather than coordinates and at times took us slightly unusual routes to reach our destination. However we think it has been good but bear in mind its limitations. I suspect they are common to a lot of Sat navs.
Summary: Maps are good, has only let me down once in regards to a turn in off the motorway but i was able to get to where i was going when it readjusted. Only thing that lets it down is the very poor battery life if you are not using it on constant charge. Three hours life constant use, Not very good. Overall it is a good sat nav if you are not planning to use it off the charge.
Summary: Happy with the Start 25, spec and price. However, 3 or 4 days after receiving delivery, I get a message from TomTom stating that my subscription to Speed Cameras ends today, and I need to pay another £19.99 to get the updates! Also, you cannot back up this device. TomTom have disable the 'Tomtom home' software on it. You can only use 'My TomTom' website.
