  • TomTom GO 520 5" Sat Nav with WiFi, TomTom Traffic and World Maps is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 37.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome tom tom This Tom Tom really is awesome. I have found EVERY address easily that I have requested. It has the ability to follow precise driving instructions such as avoiding motorways, toll roads etc etc. Additionally if you deviate from the route it suggests then it can 'pick up' on the route you have taken and proceed with the best route from thereon. I like this feature as my inbuilt satnav within my car sticks to one route and if you deviate keeps trying to get you to do U-turns insisting on the route it thinks is right. I enjoy the fact it has a lifetime update so its worth every penny in my eyes. Very pleased, recommended to friends and family

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolute Rubbish! I purchased this from Halfords when it was on special, having used TomToms in the past. Even then it was expensive, but the features including lifetime map updates of the whole of Europe and traffic information, looked like it would be worth the extra. However, I tried linking a number of phones to make the life traffic updates work, etc., but to no avail. TomTom were given weeks - yes WEEKS! to sort this out. They said that they knew of the problem and were working on it. Then they tried to blame my phone (even though it wasn't just my phone, but the same problem manifested itself with others too!), and they ignored my frequent requests for a replacement. I tried it out on a couple of occasions (minus the live features I'd paid for) and it tried to direct me away from the fastest straight route, adding 20 minutes onto its proposed journey on both occasions, trying to navigate me a long way off route!!! In the end, I returned it to Halfords for a refund with eight pages of letters to and fro complaining to TomTom with no solution. The very friendly staff member was most helpful and didn't quibble about the refund. However dear review readers, there's some good news… extremely good news! After checking out recommended navigation apps for Android, I downloaded one onto my phone and not only is the interface so much more straightforward, it gives live updates, free map downloads of the UK and Europe, traffic cameras, speed limits, E.T.A., miles to go, warnings if I go over the speed limit, etc., AND IT'S COMPLETELY FREE!! Thank you TomTom for completely putting me off paid navigation devices and saving me a fortune by pushing me in the direction of trying a free app! I would not recommend this device to anyone. Goodbye TomTom, I will never purchase one of your navigators again!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very poor software. Unit requires frequent rebooting. I purchased this from Halfords after years of using built in and phone based navigation. Initially I was impressed, despite the slow response to input. However over the first month of use the unit has become less and less reliable. Lane guidance and 3D buildings stop working until a hard reset is performed, then they work again for about 30 minutes before another reboot is needed to get them back. Occasionally the unit freezes and goes dark, needing yet another reset. TomTom customer care are a joke and just respond with instructions to restore to factory settings, but this does not fix the issues. They have now said that the issues above are ongoing, and searching the TomTom support forum shows they have been ongoing for quite some time and there are many similarly disgruntled customers.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Could be great if it worked Recently updated to the Go 520 from an older TomTom. To say the experience has been extremely frustrating is an understatement and a little over three weeks of constantly trying to resolve the issues with TomTom have come to nothing. I bought this sat nav as it is advertised as having live traffic updates, hands free calling and you can view text messages on screen, to date I have not been able to get all three things working at the same time. I can get the traffic data to work if I connect to the 520 by using my iPhone as a wifi hotspot, the traffic updates will NOT work via bluetooth at all. To be able to use hands free calling, you have to connect via Bluetooth, which means you don't get the traffic updates. I have not been able to receive text messages on screen at all. I have spoken to customer helpline and they are all very nice but are just following scripts and will not let you talk to someone further up the chain. Reluctantly I think I'm going to have to return the unit as I believe it will never be able to do what it claims it can do.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from TomTom GO 520 Works as you would expect. One word of warning, I choose to save myself money and purchased the version without a simple card for the live traffic feature. I decided to use my phone for this feature which works very well but I've noticed that even when not using the TomTom it still uses data as well as the battery.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good product Bought it for my holiday in the USA. Is currently working very well. Instructions are clear and response very quick. Also easy to put in new destinations. Certainly works better than my in-car sat nav in my BMW.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cracking tomtom Does everything it says on the tin, great soft touch screen all the features work spot on. Only down side is the sound quality on the mobile phone but not a problem for me as car has blue tooth.
