TomTom Go 5000 review


The five-inch member of TomTom's new range is pure navigation at its best

Fab new interface ; Great new graphics ; Life-time maps and data ; Great performance ; HD traffic

Low-res screen ; Speed cameras are subsription based ; Almost ; Nothing ; Else

TomTom has done it again. As a straight navigation device, it doesn't come any better.

TomTom GO 5000


TomTom continues to set the standard for standalone sat-navs with this 5-inch effort.

Lifetime TomTom traffic ; Lifetime European map updates ; New My Routes waypoint system

LIVE services only include traffic and speed camera updates ; Speed cameras still need subscription after three-month trial

All the different methods for finding a destination have been combined into one Search facility, a keyword-based system that lets you search for a postcode, a street address, or a point of interest all at the same time. The latest software will try to...

I can certainly recommend it the GO 5000

I upgraded to the Go 5000 about a month ago from a TomTom Go Live of about four years vintage. it cost me £199.Having used the GO 5000 very intensively for the last fortnight I am very happy that I upgraded. The GO 5000 has a very good interactive...

Related to latest Go 510/610/5200/6100. They don't work with most IPhones

The reason you'd buy this as opposed to the cheaper option is live traffic and mobile camera alerts. For these features to work you need to hook it up to your smartphone. If you try to hook it up to an iPhone using IOS 8 (the latest software) it keeps...

Great when it works but watch updating

I have used this Tom Tom for many months now (and previous versions prior to that for about 7 years) and found it great. It does sometimes have problems with finding spcific addresses especially when a post code is put in but that is more to do with...

Has greatly improved with time

I've had this satnav for a couple of years. At first it seemed a bit basic and not 100% reliable but after several software updates experienced during the first few months of ownership I would now describe it is excellent. The lifetime traffic and the...

A Cracking Sat Nav!! Worth more than 77%!

I cannot understand how the Which testers only gave the Tom Tom Go 5000 only 77%! Yes, the manufacturers have pared down the Sat Nav to give mostly basic functions but what are we buying here? Certainly not an entertainment centre or a mobile phone...

Inaccurate review - DOES have voice recognition

love it, so much better than Garmin

I bought a Tomtom with live traffic about 3 years ago and have been very pleased with it, except admittedly on one occasion when it failed to send me round a roadblock. I decided to buy a new satnav with lifetime traffic instead of persisting with the...
