TomTom Go 5200 review

 

The future of sat nav, but at a cost

Sophisticated phone integration ; Intuitive to use ; Accurate for its lifetime

Screen feels delicate ; Voice controls leave something to be desired ; Expensive

The TomTom Go 5200 is a wonderful top-of-the-range sat nav that is a pleasure to use, with a bevy of additional features for the frequent driver. If you’re looking for a world-class driving aide, this is the one for you.

TomTom GO 5200

 

The GO 5200 takes over from where the GO 5100 left off as the flagship 5-inch sat-nav from TomTom. Like the GO 5100, the 5200 isn't a revolution after the GO 5000; it's more of an incremental improvement.

The TomTom GO 5200 has everything you need in a sat-nav, and now includes Wi-Fi-delivered software and map updates.

TomTom GO 5200 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Go 5200 is part of the 2017 range of sat navs from TomTom. It's packed full of features, such as lifetime map updates and wi-fi, but it's pricey for a 5-inch sat nav. So are the audio and visual guidance up to scratch? Read on to find out.

TOMTOM GO 5200 5" Sat Nav - with Worldwide Maps

 

accuracy and guidance whilst on the move, especially live traffic reports.

could be easier to alter routes calculated if they do not meet requirements.

Consumer review by: MrE (argos.co.uk)

Good device, very accurate

 

Great gadget for hands free use. The live traffic is very helpful for navigating around cities to avoid jams. It's a little fiddley to set up, but the manual and videos help. Only a couple of negatives. The screen is quite reflective and it hinders...

TOMTOM GO 5200 5" Sat Nav - with Worldwide Maps

 

There aren't any

I didn't like the way it changed routes without permission also when planning a route it doesn't stay on major roads and it will not let you stay on the main road if it thinks there is a queue

Consumer review by: Youngpensioner (argos.co.uk)

Best one I’ve had.

 

Very easy, even for me, to set up. Clear, easy to see, and accurate. Wouldn't be without it.

TOMTOM GO 5200 5" Sat Nav - with Worldwide Maps

 

Easy to use

On two occasions it stated no drivable route to the postcode. So entered the town name and when a few miles from the town re-entered the postcode and would you believe thier was a drivable route after all!
