    Key Features

    Quicker
    The most powerful TomTom GO we’ve built yet can learn your driving habits and save you time in the car by intelligently predicting destinations. Starting up and planning routes is lightning fast thanks to the GO's upgraded processor. Just dock into the unique magnetic mount and you’ll be on your way in seconds.

    Destination Prediction
    TomTom GO learns your driving habits and predicts when you're likely to drive to frequent destinations saved in My Places. It remembers the time of day when you make regular journeys, so the more you drive with it, the more accurate its predictions will become. A commute will be ready right away with the latest traffic information.

    Performance Upgraded
    Start-up, destinations searches, route calculation - it's all faster with TomTom GO's upgraded processor. Each tap, swipe or voice command will be registered instantly so you can enjoy all the navigation you need with zero hassle. Changing route, having connected smartphone messages read out or zooming in and out are all faster than ever.

    Active Magnetic Mount
    Want to jump in your car and set off straight away? The unique magnetic mount makes it easy to install your TomTom GO every time you drive. You can dock or undock your sat nav in a second with one hand. Find the perfect spot in your car by adjusting the mount for either windscreen or dashboard use. No more leaving the sat nav in the car on display.

    Smarter
    Smarter than ever, the latest TomTom GO integrates seamlessly with your phone. It can read out your text messages and enable full use of your personal assistant with your phone in your pocket. Built-in Wi-Fi® makes it extremely simple to update any of your world maps. No computer needed!

    Smartphone Messages
    Hear text messages from your smartphone safely, with your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road. Say "Yes" when your TomTom GO offers to read them out for you or simply call contacts who message you via hands-free calling. Receiving too many messages? Easily switch notifications on or off from the main menu.

    Updates via Wi-Fi®
    Get the latest maps and software for your TomTom GO via built-in Wi-Fi®. No computer needed. Your sat nav will notify you when new updates are available - simply connect to your preferred Wi-Fi network and choose what to install from the menu. You can charge your device while updating so it's always ready for your next trip.

    World Maps#
    Download and update maps from around the world at no extra cost via Wi-Fi® for as long as your TomTom GO device is fully operational. Choose the best map for your trip from North America, through Europe and Africa, all the way to Australia and New Zealand. We've got you covered. Any maps you install will always be the latest version and you will receive free updates seasonally.

    TomTom Traffic
    Insanely accurate traffic information enables your TomTom GO to intelligently plan routes around traffic. We have analysed traffic every minute of every day since 2008 and combined that data with real-time updates from our community of millions of drivers like yourself. It's like having a huge network of friends all over the world helping you choose the best route to take.

    Speed Cameras
    Advance warnings on your TomTom GO will let you know whenever you're approaching a fixed, mobile or average speed camera and remind you of the speed limit too. Reports from more than 3.4 million drivers help to ensure that you always have the latest information. You'll receive updated speed camera locations free of charge via Wi-Fi® for as long as your device is fully operational.

    Average Speed Cameras
    Staying under the speed limit is becoming increasingly more complicated as average speed cameras grow more common. You can track your average speed easily and reliably with your TomTom GO, making sure you keep below the limit while driving through the entire length of average speed zones. Get visual or audible alerts if in case you're speeding.

    TomTom MyDrive
    Plan routes, check live traffic and save favourites – anytime, anywhere – from your smartphone, tablet or PC. Your TomTom GO will pick up any destinations or favourites set on MyDrive as soon as it powers on in the car and connects to your smartphone. You'll be able to get on the road faster and you'll always have a backup of all your favourites.

    Hands-free calling
    Your TomTom GO's speaker and microphone are designed for high-quality, hands-free calls in the car. Simply connect your phone via Bluetooth. You'll clearly see who's calling on your sat nav's screen. Choose to answer immediately or call them back later, straight from your TomTom GO. Your phone stays safely away saving battery.

To download these updates you need an active internet connection via Wi-Fi® or a computer with access to the internet. Your TomTom device also comes with regular traffic and mobile speed camera services. To receive these services your device needs to be smartphone connected, or equipped with a built-in SIM including Data. All of these services and updates will be available as long as your TomTom device is fully operational. Fully operational means that the device is able to receive software updates, service updates, content and works with current accessories. A device will not be fully operational when one of these can no longer be received by the device or is no longer available. As our map and navigation software technologies evolve they may require newer hardware technology to support this. In case the hardware is no longer compatible, updates will not be possible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FANTASTIC First time i have bought one of these , and its the best thing you will ever own for travelling with life time map upgrades . plug her in power it up dont even need the book on set up hit the menu and its done , easiest set up ever , with radar cameras updated daily if your in the city , best thing i like is the speed limit range , as soon as you go above the speed 110 or whatever , was doing 112 113 it goes a light brown color go over 116 120 she turns red ,even if you go to slow to 90 speed zone and your still at 95 it goes red , only one thing i would have liked is an alarm stating your over 113 and above . otherwise its fantastic love it heaps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recommended I've had this for a while now and I recommend it. Easy to set up. Very easy to set a destination. The quickest way is to just tap the location on the map. It will tell you where you've tapped. If you agree with it press Drive and that's it. The touch screen is fast and accurate. Traffic and speed camera updates work well. Update connection is via bluetooth to phone. I can confirm that very little data is used. I've put in a 32G flash card and downloaded 15G of maps (via fast WiFi). You can choose whether to put maps in internal memory or flash card. Lifetime free world maps is hard to beat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Going for the hat trick I got my 520 as a gift to replace my previous Tom Tom. I love that you can sort out your destination from your phone and it just updates Tom Tom when you get in the car. Thanks to the wireless connectivity, I can download updates from my driveway. I’ve since put one in my wife’s car and since my daughter keeps borrowing it, well, let’s just say her birthday is coming up. The only downsides, and this is being a bit picky, but cancelling a trip is harder to find in the menus than in earlier Tom Toms and I wish it was easier to find phone contacts. Also, when you start typing in addresses, why does it start with streets etc that are in other countries or states? I’ve never understood that!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good, just one drawback It is just what I needed. The only thing with this model compared with my original TomTom from 5 years back (which just stopped working, i.e. could not find the satellite) is that the unit now has a glossy glass front cover making for annoying reflections on the screen, compared with the older units.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great unit Brought this a few weeks back for a trip to NZ, worked well most of the time. Needed a more recent map even though I updated after purchasing. Global lifetime maps is a massive bonus

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great time-saving GPS Very predictive GPS. Love it as it shows real-time traffic and is able to suggest alternative routes during rush hour. I am also able to see which roads are congested to avoid them, and do not have to look down at a phone to see this, making driving safer.
