TomTom Via 52 review


A decent sat nav at a decent price

Easy to use ; Decent on-board storage ; Excellent navigation

Mount release is cumbersome ; Battery life is poor ; Takes time to boot up

The TomTom Via 52 is a respectable mid-range sat nav that offers more than it should for its price. Easy to setup, with clear menus and guidance, if you fancy upgrading from Google Maps on your phone, then you’ve come to the right place.

The Tomtom Via 62 does not have the large visible lane guidance when you approach a turn off on a motorway like my old model had. My old model with the tomtom traffic would redirect me away from the traffic or say that l was still on the fastest...
