Gentrification is afoot in the entry level sat nav segment. Not content with having introduced features that were previously reserved for the mid range on the first Starts, TomTom has now gone further and decided to increase screen size too. Out with the small 3.5-inch screens on the first versions and in with a 4.3-inch (Start 20) and 5-inch (Start 25) screen! TomTom has got us used to well-finished and aesthetically successful products. The Start 20 is no exception when it comes to the finish, with impeccable fittings, no raised screws and good quality plastics. The good news is that the casing is the same as on the TomTom Via and GO LIVE, with only the front changing. Aesthectically however, we found the design a little too cautious for our taste. It's a shame that the colours that marked out the first Starts are no longer used. Thankfully TomTom haven't gone for the glossy plastics we see so much of and instead have produced a model that will fit in anywhere. As with other TomToms, only the mini cigarette lighter adapter (it would have been difficult to make this any smaller) and the USB cable to plug into it are supplied with this GPS. You can also use the USB cable to link up to a computer to source updates.
If you're looking to get away by car this summer, then the new TomTom Start 20 is something you should consider taking along for the ride.This entry level sat nav is ideal for anyone who's getting a sat nav for the first time - or for those who only occasionally need help getting from A to B - like holidaymakers heading to the coast.To prove the point, the TomTom Start 20 has seen TomTom gives its entry-level range a radical overhaul. This one boasts an ultra-slim body with an 11cm touchscreen display, a brand new operating system - which aims to be even easier to use than before - improved Points of Interest and two million kilometres of additional roads.Just the kind of thing we love to get our teeth into.New featuresOne of the most obvious changes from the TomTom Start 2 - aside from the body and 480 x 272 pixel widescreen display - is a new ball-and-socket mounting arm, which swivels around so you can mount the TomTom Start 20 either on your car's windscreen or on the dash.You'll need a dash or air vent (not included) if you want to do the latter.The mounting arm enables you to position the TomTom 20 at almost any angle, while its suction cup is robust enough to stop it from coming loose - a problem that dogged some TomTom sat navs in the past.
