TomTom GO 50

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....

nice GPS

 

Gets you from point A to point B. The extra steps to update the maps is useless as well as the tragic updates through your phone.
