~ A larger screen for an enhanced driving experience ~
Amsterdam, 9 May 2012 – Today sees the release of the TomTom Start 60, which features the biggest screen of all TomTom's portable navigation devices. The 6" sharp screen, big buttons and menus enhance the driving experience by making it easier and safer for users.
The TomTom Start 60 comes with TomTom's new dual mounting system, which gives people the choice between mounting their device on the windscreen or dashboard.
