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


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.

I've missed TomTom!


I bought this a week ago and I couldn't be happier with it. The camera alerts are priceless, especially working in London. This more than delivers for my daily driving.
