Excerpt: The TomTom START 55TM is a new entry-level TomTom, albeit the top-of-the-line model in the Start series, thanks to its five-inch screen and lifetime traffic and map updates. Otherwise, this is just a basic and capable navigator.
TomTom Start 10 review: The Start 10 adds advanced lane guidance to TomTom's cheapest sat nav in Australia

19 February 2011
Excerpt: TomTom's Start 10 is a slight refresh of the company's entry-level Start GPS unit . It's cheaper than the Start and advanced lane guidance has been added. The Start 10 sat nav is TomTom's cheapest portable navigation unit released in Australia and has been designed for first-time GPS users.
Pros: Ease of use, EasyPort mount, speed and red light camera alerts, advanced lane guidance
Cons: IQ Routes still prefers main roads, route recalculation is a little sluggish, no Australian text-to-speech voice, no included AC adapter
Excerpt: The standalone satnav market for casual drivers has been under threat for some time from smartphone-friendly GPS software, including CoPilot Live, Nokia Maps and Google Maps. But with the recent launch of TomTom for iPhone , at least some of those profits are destined to stay in TomTom's pocket.
Excerpt: It's Saturday, the city is choked with traffic and you're in a hurry. There are juggernauts to the left of you. Cars full of shoppers to the right. You're queuing in the middle lane and there are four sets of traffic lights, two speed cameras and a coach full of gurning kids in front of you. Oh for the freedom of the open road.
Conclusion: Com uma tela grande, o GPS TomTom Start 55 ajuda desde o mais perdido dos motoristas até os experientes taxistas. Com mapas claros e interface agradável, a navegação é precisa, seja com sol ou chuva. Pena que o dispositivo peque nos comandos de voz esquisitos, no suporte veicular e na lentidão da resposta do teclado.
Pros: Telona de 5 polegadas;, Sinal forte;, Instruções de voz são precisas (à 300 metros, vire à esquerda...).
Cons: Os nomes de algumas ruas são pronunciados de forma esquisita;, Lentidão na resposta ao toque no teclado;, Suporte veicular ruim de encaixar.
