- 5-inch widescreen
- Lifetime European maps and TomTom Traffic
- Great value
Sitting in the middle of the basic GO x0 range (just above the entry level Start series) is the TomTom Go 50. Since this is part of that basic series, you'll need to pair your smartphone with the sat-nav in order to share the phone's data connection and get the Live services. Luckily, the whole process is very easy, with the device guiding you through the set up step by step.
Although the 5-inch, 480 x 272 screen is adequate, it's resistive rather than capacitive, meaning you won't be able to pinch to zoom and the whole thing is generally less responsive than a capacative version. Still, it's a fairly affordable option, which will get you TomTom's unrivalled traffic service, as well as the very useful weather warnings. If you're looking for a budget device, this is one of the best options available.
At time of review the TomTom GO 50 was available for £129.99.
