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.

Much better than my first choice


" I originally bought a Garmin satnav but returned it as the navigation was too vague e.g. turn right, drive 1.5 miles and turn left. This did not take into account a roundabout a busy crossroads and many side roads. This TomTom is far better and very...
