The TomTom GO 520 provides Wi-Fi updates and great Live Traffic, although you’ll need to add your own smartphone for the latter.

TomTom Go 520 review

 

The Go 520 may be expensive, but it's hard to see how TomTom could have made it any more desirable. TomTom's navigation and mapping software is excellent. Onscreen instructions are clear, with precise details on what to do next and when to do it.

Better range

Suction cup doesn't work well

Great Purchase

 

This was a worth upgrade to my older 2013 TomTom, which was now out-of-date. This new model has built-in wi-fi and bluetooth connectivity, which pairs with your mobile to give you live traffic updates, and acts as a hands-free assistant (useful for the...
