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 :) 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.

    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.

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

    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

    Can't really see the details either on the last one, even on the highest zoom, but right above it says Fredericksburg Rd N, above that Baker Ln N, but the two roads under also labelled Fredericksburg Rd N.

    I love a mystery, according to google, navteq, mapquest, and Tomtom, Sidney Baker ends at the interstate 10 and Frederickburg begins at the interstate and continues north.  The highest address for Sidney Baker is 2599 at the interstate and Frederickburg begins at the interstate with 2600 and increase as you go north.


    There is a 4100 Frederickburg which sounds like the location you are discribing. Search 4100 Frederickburg and see if that is the location you wanted.

    Or all the maps are misnamed. There is a road in this area that was renamed but many of  the locals continue to use the old name, the post office will still deliever to the old name.

    "Funny" thing is, when I had a look at the Navteq map, all the small roads (more like drive courts most) were called there to Baker St (or Rd).

    Hi,  I bought myself a TomTom 50m because it was the only unit available on the display and appeared to be what I wanted.  It worked great. I am a complete novice with GPS.  I initially hooked it to my PC and registered my home address,  put the unit in my car consol and waited for an opportunity to use it.  Few days later, I am a little lost in a town about 125 miles from home.  Plugged the unit in to the Cig Lighter, it found my location in a couple minutes and gave me directions home.  Perfect

    Have read this thread since I'm thinking of replacing my 2010 140s with one with map updates like 50m. As far as that street address, I often use https://tools.usps.com/go/ZipLookupAction!input.action to check for corrrect zip code. Whatever they say is the correct address in the one USPS use.
