Already a household name, the tech gurus over at TomTom have another gong to add to their overflowing awards cabinet; TripAdvisor’s 2016 Travellers’ Choice Award! This prestigious accolade is awarded to products that travellers deem are the must-have items for travelling, and TomTom’s sat navs were amongst the winning products.
In this post we’re going to take a look at three of TomTom’s top rated sat navs to see what makes them stand out from the crowd.
TomTom Start 52
The TomTom Start 52 is the perfect option for those who’ll be using their sat nav occasionally around the UK, ROI and Europe.
It features free lifetime maps to ensure it’s always up to date with the latest road layouts, as well as three months of speed camera alerts to ensure you’re never caught out. The Start 52 is easy to use and reliable; if you don’t need a sat nav with all the bells and whistles, this is the one for you.
TomTom Go 51
The TomTom Go 51 is a step up from the Start and is the base model of the Go range. Regular users will appreciate the extra features packed into it, such as lifetime world maps, lifetime speed cameras, and lifetime traffic via a smartphone.
If you have a smartphone, you can use it alongside the Go 51 for real-time traffic updates. Your TomTom will let you know if there are any delays on your route and will suggest an alternate route around the jam if one’s available.
The Go 51 also responds to voice commands, so you’ll never need to take your hands from the wheel.
TomTom Go 5200
The big brother of the Go range, the TomTom GO 5200 will be available to buy towards the end of September and is certainly one worth waiting for!
Smarter and faster than ever, the Go 5200 boasts a whole host of features that make it stand out from the competition. One such feature is wi-fi connectivity, letting you update the sat nav without needing to use a computer.
It also features seamless integration with your Apple or Android smartphone. With this you can speak to Siri or Google Now, have your messages read aloud, and take and initiate hands-free calls.
Another star feature of the Go 5200 is its built-in SIM card, letting you use TomTom services such as Live Traffic without connecting your phone and using your data up. Alongside all of this, it comes with lifetime maps, speed cameras and average speed cameras, resulting in the most comprehensive sat nav on the market to date.
There’s also the added benefit of TomTom MyDrive. Everyone can take advantage of this feature, but if you own a model of the current Go range, MyDrive will seamlessly integrate with your sat nav, helping your journey to be as smooth and hassle-free as possible.
