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....

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

Upgraded replacement


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

Once you learn it and how it works great GPS


I bought this GPS for a trip to Canada and because the old one I have works well in my work van. I find the new one has good features to it which is the ability to type in the name of your destination such as an attraction and it has it in it's memory...

I like that you can type the name of your destination and it already has it.Learning

Learning what all the symbols are
