The TomTom Go 50 review

 

In the box you get a USB cable and cigarette lighter adaptor for in-car charging. The Go 50 itself is well built and the mounting bracket offers a good amount of adjustment and a firm grip on your windscreen.

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....

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.

Great GPS at a reasonable price

 

This is a great GPS at a reasonable price. The device connects to my smartphone using Bluetooth to provide real time traffic updates and the location of speed cameras. I really appreciate the inclusion of map updates for life to ensure that I always...

There is an easy to use and intuitive user interface

Some options are multi-selection which buries functionality under several sub-menus

Poor product for price compared to free Google

 

I wouldnt suggest this product, compared to the fact that google maps and traffic are free. plus this product uses the smart phone for data, so why not use smart phone for google maps which is completely free.

Noting compared to price

Price high and traffic better in Google

We got this as a replacement for an older Tom Tom XL with a depleted battery. We could have purchased a new battery, but decided to get the newer version instead for just a little more than the replacement battery. We love the lifetime maps and traffic...

Lifetime Maps, Lifetime Traffic, easily understood

Nothing I can think of
