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.

Great Little SatNav


We upgraded from my in-laws' borrowed TomTom while on holiday, having spotted this on the Clearance shelf. What a bargain. So glad we did.It took a while to get used to the new interface, but it's pretty intuitive, so there was nothing too difficult....

Nice Functions


Fairly good, not really used with the traffic update function much as it is a bit of a fiddle to hook up with a phone without a 'hotspot'. I was going to return it as I'm much more used to my prior Garmin version.....given a chance though and it works...

You put in the postcode of where you want to go and the little man/woman who live inside tells you where to go . Magic !
