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

 

It's set apart from cheaper units by its ability to communicate with either an Android phone or an iPhone via Bluetooth in order to receive up-to-the-minute data on road conditions, and isn't limited to its built-in database of points of interest. Live...

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 product, a little confusing.

 

If you're already familiar with Tom Tom products, then you will more than likely enjoy this model as well. It can be a little confusing though at first, doesn't seem to be as user friendly as their previous models. But the lifetime map updates is nice...

Great product!

 

It is a very nice alternative to the Garmin. I do like the different voices but wish you could change your icon shape as well. The color changes you can do are also very nice. All in all, a great buy!

I am pleased with this purchase

 

Easy to use and will recalculate the route. Much better than the Garmin that went back after 1 week.

Great GPS

 

I have a Go60 in another car and this was a perfect match (Functions are identical) in a 1 inch smaller size.
