TomTom GO 520

 

The GO 520 is the first satnav from TomTom to roll out Wi-Fi to the company's mid-range. This is a 5-inch unit offering similar features to the GO 5200. The notable difference is that where the latter has a built-in mobile data connection, the 520...

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.

Great idea, needs some work!

 

So we all love the TomTom! But if you received the original mount for the TomTom and noticed the suction problem for the mount, you will encounter the same suction problems for this mount. Although it does increase the range in angle you may want for...

Better range

Suction cup doesn't work well

Sat nav

 

Tried to key in locations, and still trying. Compared to the Sat nav systems I've had in the past, you need a degree in Computer science to operate this one.
