TomTom Start 25 M GPS Navigation System, Free Lifetime UK & Republic of Ireland Maps

Product information

Whether you're driving familiar roads or venturing somewhere new, the TomTom Start 25 M will give you peace of mind. It’s packed full of the latest technology but still incredibly easy to use. See high quality maps on its larger screen, and trust it to guide you safely through complex junctions for a confident drive.

Key benefits:

  • A large 5-inch extra-wide touch screen display will help you see your route clearly ahead of you and its intuitive touch screen operation makes changing settings safe and simple.
  • Advanced lane guidance will clearly show you which lane to take at junctions so you don’t miss your turning. On difficult motorway intersections, a realistic 3D representation of the junction will keep you relaxed and safe.
  • Spoken street names means you can keep your eyes on the road, making turnings easier and safer
  • Simply plug in your TomTom to your cigarette lighter and you’re off. It’s really that simple.
  • The QuickGPSfix feature speeds up the time it takes for your device to fix a GPS signal, allowing you to drive off sooner
  • Your device can show you the route which has a lower environmental impact as well most fuel efficient. Driving with more fuel-efficient routes will save you money as well as reducing your impact on the environment.
  • Avoid getting caught by speed cameras too thanks to an alert telling you when you approach speed cameras, fixed speed cameras and average speed checks.
  • An integrated mounting feature means you don’t need to carry around a chunky mount for your device. A convenient fold away ‘sucker’ fits easily to your windscreen and will also fold out too so you can mount it on your dashboard.

TomTom Start 25 M GPS Navigation System, Free Lifetime UK & Republic of Ireland Maps 3.8 5 8 8
Excellent product This was purchased to replace an earlier sat nav, and the modern version is so much more improved, slimmer version too. Delighted with it. A good price too. 05 August 2014
New Tom Tom Satnav II find the Start 25 much better than my old device. It is much quicker to start up and is easier to use. I had a problem linking it to my Tom Tom account on line and eventually had to contact customer support. The service I got from them was excellent and they linked my Start 25 to my account for me. Now I have no problems and my device is updated regularly. I find the inclusion of road names very useful. 29 July 2014
TomTom Start 25 M GPS Navigation System, Free Lifetime UK & Republic of Ireland Maps I have used this gadget several times now & find it really good. A few place name not pronounced accurately - but that is not a problem. What I miss from my previous TomTom is the display of miles to go and perhaps the overall mileage from A to B whilst travelling. Money really well spent! 10 June 2014
Tom Tom Start 25 Bought to replace an old Tom Tom and I'm very happy with it. I've not experienced any of the issues mentioned in other reviews. It's easy to use and I like the new clearer lane markings to show which lane to be in when exiting the motorway. It sticks no problem to the windscreen (not dashboard). Only criticism is that not all house numbers seem to be in database e.g my house is over 100 yrs old and it doesn't recognise my house, but has newer houses on the same street. 27 May 2014
OK But previous units were better! I have owned a TomTom OneXL for five years and decided that, in the long run, a unit with Lifetime maps, such as the Start 25, would be an economic alternative to purchasing new maps each year. First the good points:- Slightly larger and clearer screen than the old OneXL. Spoken directions include road names and are more descriptive. In-built screen mount is easier to fix to the windscreen The issues:- Volume is quieter and the sound very tinny even with the volume up full. No way to save itineraries or even save the current route. Limit of just three way points for a journey. Route is forgotten if the TomTom is left off for more than an hour or so. So if you stop off at a waypoint for lunch expect to have to enter the remainder of the route again! In-built screen mount makes the unit bulkier than earlier devices - it tends to catch on the case. If you power via a USB port on your car it may see the car as a computer and display instructions on how to connect rather than displaying the map. New MyTomTom software (yes it needs new software for your PC) does not have any backup options. Overall disappointed that some of the original (useful) features have been lost with little overall improvement over five years. 10 May 2014
Great GPS Having previously used both Navman and TomTom units I have been very impressed and pleased with the performance of this model. The software has been updated to produce faster logon to the satellites and the lifetime map updates is especially welcome. The Start 25 is quick to choose routes and quickly recalculates if you introduce a change or make a mistake. All in all, a really great GPS unit at a very good price with speedy delivery and a 2 year warranty from John Lewis. 29 April 2014
