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.

Very easy to use and follow.

Quite slow to get started when its been switched off. However if you use it every day you can leave it on sleep mode and it will start up immediately.

TomTom GO 40


The size of this Tomtom is good, and it is easy to use and understand.

For this Tomtom model to work it depended on my phones wifi connection. It just would connect with my phone and my phone is one of the latest phones on the market at the moment. So I took it back and got another Tomtom model, which had worked great.

TomTom GO 40


Excellent instrument. Screen could have been more responsive. Some direct buttons to operate basic functions like volume alternate routes etc could be improved.

Very small screen to enjoy all the features.
