Dutch mapping maven TomTom has just unveiled its latest dashboard dazzler, the Start2. The successor to the bargain bucket Start, it comes with some of the navigation giant’s biggest features at a drop down price.
Punters plumping for the Start2 will find premium features including IQ Routes for plotting its way around nasty traffic snarl ups and choosing different routes based on the time of day.
– TomTom app for iPhone review
– Google Maps Navigation hits Android 1.6 devices
– Nokia attacks Google with launch of free satnav app
On top of that, the Start2 also rocks advanced lane guidance, spoken street names and TMC traffic info. If you want the skinny on those jams though, you’ll need to stump up extra for the dedicated receiver and pay a subscription too.
The UK maps version is just £119, with a full European edition costing £139. Those prices are great, with TomTom clearly worried by the emergence of free mapping services such as Google Maps Navigation and Nokia Ovi Maps.
