tomtom start 50m

Can someone tell me about the start 50m. It is currently on sale at wally-mart for a good price on the their website. I tried to find it on the tomtom site and cannot. Could this possibly be a typo by the walmart add?

The Start models are the basic stuffs with A to B navigation, IQ Routes, and that's it :smileyhappy: Cheap though.

I advise staying away from the Start models at Walmart.  I bought one and it was nothing but trouble.  Fortunately Walmart has a good return policy.

My opinion is these are cheap Chinese knock-offs that somehow Walmart got TomTom to stick their label on.  (I have no proof) but from owning other TomToms I don't think this is a real TomTom.

Re: tomtom start 50m

I got one of these start 50m for Christmas and put in a address in my local area the map was 2.5 miles off and when I put my home as a destination it wanted me to turn down private drive ways , dead end roads and subdivisions with one way in and out. I will not be using this unit in a unfamiliar city, and will be replaceing it with a garman.

Re: tomtom start 50m

Did you update it to the latest software and map? Maybe there is a 4 years old map on the device.

Re: tomtom start 50m

Do you mind providing the state, city, and a road that is missing in that area? Thank you.

Re: tomtom start 50m

The city is Kerrville Tx. , the roads are where they should be it's the directions and addresses that are incorrect. The address I used is 14 miles from my house if I used this tom tom , I would have driven 28 miles out of my way( plus the 14 to get to address) and still not arrived at the correct address
