TomTom Start2 budget satnav outed: see the photos!

The TomTom Start2 has just been made official. Like the TomTom Start before it, it boasts a simple UI and low pricetag, but this time, the Dutch GPS guru has bunged in some souped up software skills at no extra charge. Read on for the details and photos.

TomTom’s not tinkered with the hardware much on the TomTom Start2 (Not that there was anything wrong the first time round), but instead loaded it up with a few features whose absence made the original inferior to the TomTom One. The TomTom Start2 now comes with advanced lane guidance, so you’ll know just where to be on motorways and roundabouts to make your junction.

The TomTom Start2 also comes with RDS-TMC Traffic support. You’ll need a separate receiver to use it, but if you’ve got one, you can pump live traffic info to the TomTom Start2 and plan your route around it without the need for a TomTom Live subscription. Spoken streets names also make their debut, so you can keep your eyes on the road while trying to find that address, and IQ Routes is present as before, giving the TomTom Start2 masses of data on the best routes to pick at different times of day.

The TomTom Start2 is out from April, priced at £119 for a UK only version, and £139 for Europe maps. You’ll still be able to use StartSkin colourful cases on it, but at £14.99 each, we wouldn’t recommend it.
