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 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.

Great GPS

 

This was purchased for the lifetime map and traffic updates for someone that isn't too technically savvy in terms of using Waze or another app on their phone as their primary GPS. The screen size is nice, the text is readable, and it hasn't guided...
