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.

not as good as previous model


" I have been a satisfied owner of a TomTom ONE, and Which has given GO a Best Buy rating. So I expected that GO would be at least as easy-to-use as ONE. How wrong I was! There are lots of issues with this model. Sadly none of them are mentioned in the...
