TomTom GO 40


The TomTom GO 40 is a traffic beater at a highly affordable price

Lifetime TomTom Traffic ; Lifetime European maps ; Great value

Live services require smartphone connection ; Relatively low-resolution resistive touch screen ; Single USB power connection on car adapter

The GO 40 brings TomTom's brilliant Traffic services down to an even more affordable level, although you will need to supply your own smartphone mobile data connection.

Nice product


" To be honest, it's my first sat nav and I'm really happy with it. It's easy in use, nice design and size. I've never used sat nav before, but this one is really great, so I could use it easily. I've unpacked it, set up and drove with it. "
