    I bought this Sat Nav recently and have been extremely pleased with it! It is quick, no glitches and re-routes without problem. I like the way the cradle is built in and feels very secure stuck to the windscreen. I also like how it knows the speed limit of every road I'm on. I find this very handy on the country and village roads without speed signs.

    The only minor problem I can find is there is no LED on the device to let me know that it's charging or when it has finished charging. This didn't stop me giving the product 5 stars. Excellent value for money and I highly recommend.

    Model: Start UK & RoI - Black
    I am a first time user and wanted a simple to use but reliable unit and decided to go for this one. Brought it from my local store, opened it and used it to take me to unknown address 20 miles away. Was so easy to use without looking at any instructions and was so acurate. Very quick to re-direct when you take a turning too early (as I did when 2 junctions were very close together)and soon got me back on track within a couple of seconds. I don't mind motorway driving so other comments have not put me off along with the fact you can ask for alternitive routes. Liked the fact I can download updated info and buy a homer voice if I ever desired! Love the fact you are not stuck with one voice and think Irish Sean is very calming to take instruction from lol.
    I did buy a cheaper brand a few days before but had no web back up and couldn't even direct me properly from my moms which is 2 miles away along with the fact that every bend in the road I was told to turn left etc. Somethings you buy you are just better going for a decent brand and having a reliable product then saving £20 and ending up spending that plus more on petrol and patience. Very happy with my first decent sat nav and will only buy Tomtom in the future!

    Model: Start UK & RoI - Black
    Having been the unlucky victim of crime when my original TomTom one was stolen from my works van (serves me right for leaving it in there I suppose)I had to buy a new sat nav. As said above I already owned a TomTom one so I was familiar with them and so far they had never let me down so I decided on another Tomtom but this time the TomTom start. Once it arrived I eagerly unpacked it and took it out for a spin. Everything worked well but some of the features of the "one" ware missing most notably the ability to turn up the sound on the unit. I am no rocker but I do like the radio on when travelling along but the lack of a volume button soon put paid to that as I struggled to hear the TomTom properly, that said it may just be me going a little mutt & jeff but it just didn't have the oomph to punch above the music at moderate levels so for me a mark down straight away.
    The new built in screen sucker is a welcome addition as it is intergrated so the unit is easier to store and the new design worked well. Built in speed camera alerts worked great and detected everyone I approached but again the ability to change the notification sound is a bit of a minus, albeit the one chosen by tomtom is less intrusive than my last unit so a bit less of a problem. Tomtom maps are great and have never put me wrong and on this unit map share is standard allowing the owner to download any map changes made by other motorists onto the machine, a plus point.
    IQ maps are also standard however I would happily have paid a bit more for their advanced lane guidence which highlights the correct lane at busy intersections you should be in, this is a boon on some motorways.
    I'm happy with my start, shame about the sound output which is my only real gripe.

    Model: Start UK & RoI - Black Verified Purchase
    This is now the second Tom Tom I have purchased.
    My partner required one of her own and didn't need the
    Bluetooth, voice activation, MP3 player, and other bells and whistles.
    Simple and clean functions make this perfect for her.
    Out of the box it was a pleasure to use and did not require
    calling NASA to translate the instruction booklet

    A great value for money

    Model: Start UK & RoI - Black
    I already have a TomTom satellite navigation system and use it regularly. I rate this as a 5 Star product. I shall soon be travelling extensively throughout Europe by road and recently saw an opportunity to purchase a spare unit quite cheaply at a sale. Although an older model, the unit was still boxed, absolutely complete and appeared to be unused. It would not, however, switch on but, thinking it needed nothing more than charging, I took a chance and bought it.

    I tried everything (As did my local store) but the unit simply would not switch on. Eventually, I contacted TomTom Customer Services and told them how I had obtained the unit and that it was "NOT" under guarantee. Their service was exceptional. Firstly, they sent me a small package containing a cardboard box which, when assembled, fitted my TomTom unit perfectly and would clearly protect the unit whilst in the post. Secondly, the package also contained a Royal Mail "Special Delivery" envelope complete with address and tracking number. Postage and insurance were already paid by TomTom.

    Within 24 hours of my posting the unit back to TomTom I received an email confirming receipt and within 7 days I got another unit back. TomTom had REPLACED my unit free of charge with a brand new and exactly the same model and ALL under guarantee!

    So for those of you who are contemplating purchasing a TomTom satellite navigation system, I thought you might like to know about this company's follow-up customer services system. They are quite excellent and I hope this message is useful.
