TomTom Start 25: Features and Functionality

The body of the TomTom Start 25 Europe looks pretty solid and compact and weighs about 213 grams and has the generous dimensions (134x93x19 mm).

It’s 16:9 touchscreen display is comfortable: a diagonal of 13 cm allows the display of maps in an appropriate manner, all thanks to the screen resolution to 480×272 pixels but, unfortunately, it is resistive and not capacitive, retail weighing and not just on the user-experience. The internal memory of the navigator is 4 GB which unfortunately cannot be expanded due to lack of memory expansion slots.

The TomTom Start 25 has been designed for maximum ease of use, and the device allows the use of voice commands to perform many functions, such as entering addresses and route planning. Thanks to the indicator Advanced Lane is easy to see which lane to take in the fittings to avoid unpleasant mistakes.

The TomTom Start 25 is a good navigation system with good features and functionality. Designed for those who need to map exclusively Italian and for those who have big claims in terms of multimedia and user-experience: the latter is slightly sacrificed due to the resistive touch screen, not capacitive, and not a little something that weighs on the overall evaluation. The TomTom Start 25 is still a good product but could also be sold at a price a little lower.
