    • Free lifetime European maps & TomTom traffic
    • Quick Search - find your destination faster as soon as you start typing.

You can also change the search function by tapping the "Current Map" option in the top right of the search window, this gives you options on the nature of the search, such like –Near Route, Near City, Lat/Long etc.
    • Interactive Map - zoom in and out to find and explore places on the map with your fingertips & see the traffic overview in your area
    • Route Bar for traffic & travel info at a glance on the road ahead
    • Voice Control - control your device with your voice, this feature is sensitive so it can pick up background noise. To prevent this you can disable the "Wake Up" phrase in the Settings>Voice Control menu, this makes voice activation only become active when you tap the Voice Control option in the Main Menu.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by Just get the app for your phone! Had this sat nav for over a year now and compared to all the other Tom Tom devices I have used in the past this is disappointing. To be honest I don't think there is any point buying a stand alone sat nav any more as for the live traffic you have to connect your phone to it in which case I may as well as just download the Tom Tom app on to my phone and use that instead. The volume doesn't seem to be that loud either by that I mean if you have your windows open and radio on some instructions can easily missed. Also 1 year and a couple of weeks since purchase it no longer charges properly from the in car charger, so now I have to charge it from my laptop and hope it has enough charge to last for my journey. 19 August 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Value My old Tomtom stopped working and having investigated the cost of a repair and the time it would take without it, I decided that the go 50 was the right product. investigation on the internet showed Halfords was the "best buy". I ordered on line to collect the following day, at a branch that was only a short distance from a trip I was going to have to make to Gatwick airport. I called at the shop, showed the order reference and was served efficiently and out of the store in about 5 minutes. Really pleased with the product and service. 02 August 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Sat nav Staff in March halfords were extremely helpful, friendly and went out of their way to help. V impressed! Sat is perfect - just what I needed 31 July 2016
    Rated 1 out of 5 by A Step Backwards for Tom Tom Had to buy new Tom Tom after charging port on Start 60 broke.(Common fault and unrepairable as 20+ types of parts in usage). The 50 looked ok but when used found it was a poorly designed operating system. It is harder to operate with more stages added for no obvious reason. e.g. clunky seach then you get asked to confirm address THEN asked "lets go",why? No longer able to alter map colours, which are bad on the 50, nor change map views without doing repeated steps in the main menu. Nothing can be controlled outside the main menu which is only accessed by a tiny onscreen button. Voice control comes on whilst listening to radio, how often do they say "Hello TomTom" on Radio 1 ? After investing in Traffic update connector for Start 60 the Go 50 only operates with your mobile phone. In short it is a poorly thought out system which appears to have had no improvement on earlier models. 25 July 2016
    Rated 4 out of 5 by The product is good, but ..... Although the review should be about the product, I feel that you should be aware of some staff problems at Guildford. NOT the male trainee who was very polite and apologetic! 21 July 2016
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Nothing bad so far We had to wait to try out our tomtom go50 because unfortunately it had been opened and the wrong lead was removed and had to be posted on. However we fired it up yesterday - and took it on maiden voyage today with none of the problems others have reported. It was quick and glitch free. We haven't delved into syncing it with the the phone to get traffic reports yet but we like the new interface and over all it seems an improvement on our old start 25 which had given good service but died of old age. 26 June 2016
    Rated 3 out of 5 by product has good features, but! Unfortunately I can only rate this model average.Heres why. I dropped the previous Tom Tom, so I had to buy a new one. I was assured that the same model had been upgraded. The old one had a separate sucker module, this one is all one piece, therefore not as easy to use for a person of 77 years of age. I was due to go away to Spain the same day I bought it, otherwise I would have exchanged it. One last thing , it does not seem as sturdy as the previous one. The purchase price was £140. Awaiting your response. 17 May 2016
    Rated 3 out of 5 by Basic I've been a tomtom costumer for over 10 years,started with the 600 and my last one was a start xl.allways loved the intuitive menus and functions.must say that some of the functions i never used,and understand the need to simplify sistems but this new tomtom its to basic and not user friendly like the previous ones.i would add some of the features of the old ones like the way you search for POI'S,it was easy to find them.i made my on categories and serve hundreds of costumers and now its a pain to look for their names on the menus.the satnav itself looks cheap.the only cool feature is the traffic updates,very accurate,really reliable information.i have plenty of data on my phone so the feature is allways on.hope tomtom change some of software on the next update 09 May 2016
