TomTom Go 50 review

 

Feature-packed, low-cost sat nav wants to be friends with your smartphone

Good value for money ; Lifetime TomTom Traffic ; Decent-size screen

Smartphone connection needed for timely info ; Resistive touchscreen

The TomTom Go 50 is a great sat nav for the price – for which you get a big screen, lifetime TomTom Traffic and a roster of other great features. So long as you have a compatible phone to enjoy the up-to-date information, it's a worthy purchase.

TomTom GO 50

 

Lifetime traffic and Euro map updates in an affordable 5-inch package

Lifetime TomTom Traffic ; Lifetime European maps ; Great value

Live services require smartphone connection ; Relatively low-resolution resistive touchscreen

The TomTom GO 50 marks the introduction of weather warnings, but the great value it represents for a 5-inch sat-nav is the main attraction.

The TomTom Go 50 review

 

The TomTom Go 50 is a 5in satnav that's preloaded with maps for the whole of Europe, and has TomTom's latest interface for even faster navigation. Here's our TomTom Go 50 review.

The TomTom Go 50 is a great satnav with lots of useful features, but we'd like to see menus that are easier to use. As long as you have a compatible smartphone and tariff, you'll benefit from timely information on traffic jams and even bad weather....

Good....but

 

The GPS works great. And the interface is clean. I've owned a Tom Tom previously and I like the free map updates. However, it would be good to have a quick simple button to navigate HOME. You have to go through a couple touches/menus to get to HOME in...

Excellent GPS

 

Make sure you have to cord snapped into the plug on back of the unit. I thought something was wrong because the battery wouldn't charge and the screen stayed black, but I didn't have it plugged in correctly. Excellent GPS mapping. This is our second...

Great basic gps w/a few bells and whistles

 

This is a great GPS for the price. I upgraded from a TomTom One to the go 50. It is a huge improvement over the old GPS.
