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.

None that I come to mind

TomTom VIA 62


Sean's cheerful Irish voice informing you that you've missed the junction and need to turn.

The insistence of leaving the motorway to travel back roads, that may get you there slightly quicker, but rely on slower routes, with roundabouts and junctions and generally need far more concentration on a very long journey. so you arrive less...
