Enhance Safety

Safety is always the number-one priority when driving, and the Start 25 gives you the tools to make your journey go more smoothly - from easy-to-read large screens and warnings of fixed cameras ahead, to spoken street names that let you keep your eyes on the road.

5" Touch Screen (13 cm)

You can see the route ahead more easily with the large 5" touch screen on the Start 25 from TomTom. Our touch screen technology gives you the optimum view with the easiest control, all so that operating your device is a pleasure.

Spoken Street Names

Even when driving on familiar routes, consulting a map can be hazardous. That's why the TomTom Start 25 features spoken instructions. By helping you to keep your eyes on the road, we're helping you to have a safer journey. And, because our spoken instructions include street names, you'll find knowing which turnings to make is even easier than before.

Camera Alerts

The Start 25 comes with fixed speed camera alerts pre-installed, to help you to drive more safely and responsibly. You also get one free update during your first year of use, to get the most up-to-date information on which locations have changed, and where new cameras have been placed.

Reduce Driver Stress

Find the right route every time with the Start 25, including the latest maps, and easy and clear instructions on how to get started.

Advanced Lane Guidance

Drivers often feel stressed at unfamiliar junctions when there are a lot of lanes to choose from. Advanced lane guidance provides extra clarity to drivers in these circumstances, so they won’t miss a turn or have to make a last-minute lane crossing. It works by giving them a still 3D image on the screen that clearly indicates the lane they need to take. So even at the most complex junctions and in the heaviest traffic, drivers can stay relaxed and in control.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Exceeded my expectations! 16 Oct 2012
    By Russell
    Style Name:Start 25 UK - Standard
    This is my second TomTom, my first was a GO700 which is still going well after 8 years. I changed because I fancied a large screen and the new features. I deleted my old TomTom Home2 site on my computer completely and installed the new one for the Start called 'MyTomTom' which is a free download on the TomTom main site page 'Getting Started'. I would advise you to do the same to avoid any problems if you have a previous TomTom.

    My Sat Nav was up to date straight out of the box but I connected it up and it updated the traffic cameras and some shared map info with no problems. You can check if yours is up to date by going to 'settings',then 'me and my device', then 'about my device'. At the time of writing an up Sat Nav will read on the second line (App 12.045.1067676.84 (0) 2041, 19/9/2012 [the date I did it, yours will have a different date of course] OS 1017068. Be warned this is not a fast process even with a Broadband connection!

    I really like the 5" screen it's bright and clear and the voice is clear and very loud. The new holder remains with the Sat Nav when you remove it from the windscreen and folds flat - which is a very good idea. If you did have any problems with it, it can be easily removed and cheaply replaced. Putting it on a windscreen and removing it is simplicity itself. Having spoken road names is great and you are sometimes surprised by the fact that you never really knew the name of a road you travelled on for years! Not all the voices work with spoken road names you must choose one that says it speaks street names of which there is only one English one on my Sat Nav (Serena). I found it picks up the satellites very quickly and the speed at which it processes routes is very very good.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Start well with Tom Tom 9 Sep 2011
    By Grumpa
    Style Name:Start 25 EU - Standard
    Bought for my wife who is technophobic! This Tom Tom is intuitive and very easy to use and my wife has operated it without difficulty over 1500 miles in France this summer without having to look at an instruction manual. She does not use motorways or the major national routes and the Tom Tom has navigated her perfectly through the minor scenic routes that she prefers. It has several features that are excellent, the screen rotates so that the image and instructions are always the right way up, voice prompts are unambiguaous and detailed and the screem itself is very clear. The power cable is good with a usb charger built in and the same cable can be used to connect to your PC for updating maps and speed camera locations. A good product that works well.

    2.0 out of 5 stars buy with care 18 Aug 2013
    By slaterm
    Style Name:Start 25 EU - Standard
    If you can keep it working then it works fine as a sat nav and is as accurate as any I have used. The plus points would be the lane tips and the graphics.

    however Tom Tom has a few problems. firstly mine stopped being able to find GPS satellites. The update for that seemed to work ok. However the latest updates were a nightmare. Finally managed to get the updates installed but in doing so the application wiped the maps so now I am left with an updated sat nav that does not contain any maps. The support and software updates make this not worth the money in my opinion. Works fine until you need to update the device software and GPS fix software. Then it starts to go horribly wrong.

    buy one with knowledge that after a period of time it will be easier to buy another one rather than update it. Lifetime map updates guarantee is something that sounds great but you will spend many hours cursing your PC to get it working

    4.0 out of 5 stars Slightly worried 21 Jun 2012
    By Ant TOP 1000 REVIEWER
    Style Name:Start 25 UK - Standard
    I needed a new Satnav as my old one was very ancient, a bit battered and I hadn't updated the maps for seven years! It was a basic Tom Tom One but I liked it very much, especially the ability to re-route if you encounter a hold up. I asked for a new one for my birthday and got this, and was somewhat worried about it on reading the Amazon reviews - would it get a GPS signal, would it charge, would it still have the software that allowed re-routing? Well, so far I'm very satisfied as it does all of those things, plus I now have up-to-date maps and a nice non-chunky wide-screen satnav.

    Other positives after a two-week trial: the lane advice is nice; I like the spoken directions telling you the name/no of the road you are joining and the direction of travel; it fits nicely onto the windscreen without leaving much of a mark, and it beeps at you when a "safety" camera is near. Not 5 stars because there is a bit of meanness evident by Tom Tom not including a case, but I bought a nice pencil-case from W H Smith that fits it for about three quid!

    Slight confusion around Tom Tom Home v My Tom Tom (its the latter you have to use). Make sure you do the mandatory software update before you use it. My car is a Seat Leon - don't know if that's important.

    So far, so pleased. Will update if things change...

    3.0 out of 5 stars Speed Cameras NOT included 28 May 2013
    By Dan
    Style Name:Start 25 UK - Lifetime Maps|Verified Purchase
    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.
