Ensure that you are up to date at all times with lifetime maps.
Ensure that you are up to date at all times with lifetime maps. TomTom maps are issued seasonally and include changes in the roads and revised speed limits. These are provided free for the useful life of the device, which is the period of time that TomTom supports the START 42 EU with updates, services, content and accessories. A device will be considered to have reached the end of its life when none of these are still available.

Always be informed with speed camera warnings.
Advanced warnings on your TomTom START 42 EU will notify you when you are approaching a speed camera and will also remind you of the speed limit. You will be able to download updated speed camera locations for three months with this TomTom, and after that is a subscription service. You receive both fixed camera alerts, and average speed checks, as well as receiving mobile camera updates from the community of over five million TomTom users.

What type of mount is included with my TomTom START 42 EU?
