TomTom's 5-inch entry-level device comes with a range of new features and updates. These include lifetime map updates, a more streamlined navigation and map screen, and a radically redesigned case compared to the older Start 60 model.
One aspect of the Start 50 which lets you know you're using a budget device is the 480 x 272 resistive touch screen, which isn't as responsive or capable as capacitive alternatives. Still, the newly redesigned navigation screen is fairly clutter-free and you will certainly appreciate the effort TomTom has put into making the Start 50 as easy to use as possible.
If you're looking for a capable entry-level sat-nav, this is a great option.Buy Now at Amazon.co.uk from £74.99
