TomTom Start introduces new users to GPS navigation with easy to use device
TomTom is introducing the TomTom Start to New Zealand – an entry-level GPS device with new menu, IQ Routes for smart route planning and coloured skins to give the TomTom Start a personal and stylish touch.

The company says with its new menu and intelligent navigation, The TomTom Start is specifically designed for all drivers, and makes a great introduction to the benefits of GPS car navigation.

“With the introduction of TomTom Start, navigation has never been so accessible. We have redefined ease-of-use and taken affordable navigation to the next level,” says Chris Kearney, Marketing Manager TomTom, Australia and New Zealand. “This is done while of course always providing drivers with the fastest route to their destination using TomTom IQ Routes.”

The TomTom Start is a compact device with a 3.5” touch screen, Spoken Street Names so drivers never miss a turn and the integrated fold-and-go mount, which makes the whole navigation package fit into any pocket, small bag or glove compartment.

TomTom’s leading IQ Routes technology provides Start users with the fastest route, any time of day, with accurate travel times. TomTom’s database of over 800 billion speed profiles worldwide ensures routes are planned according to historical real average speeds.

TomTom’s Latest Map Guarantee ensures new users have the latest GeoSmart map and TomTom Map Share™ allows users to obtain daily map updates via free TomTom HOME software.

The TomTom Start also includes an array of safety features, including safety camera locations (red light and speed), visual and audible warnings when driving over the speed limit and the Help me! menu for one touch assistance.

For personalisation, users can go to the TomTom HOME desktop software and download content, including start-up screens and a range of fun voices.

TomTom Start is available at retail stores for NZ$299. Changeable covers (StartSkins) are available from retailers for NZ$29.95 per colour and include a matching protective bag.
