TomTom GO 50 Sat Nav with Western European Maps, 3D Maps, Lifetime Traffic

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product so much easier than my last one to use A real good satnav , very easy to use . Great buy 09 September 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by First class Prudict & first class service A great service, easy to order & the Tomtom is a fantastic item 02 September 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Extremely disappointing product Please remember, Ideal World, you asked for my review, and in all honesty I have to say I found this item extremely disappointing, so much so that I had to return it for a refund. I have been using TomTom sat-navs for more years than I care to remember, ever since the very basic ones cost over £500, and they have always been so easy to operate. With the Go 50 I found it impossible to even find the first "point of interest" I wanted directions to (a well-used railway station in West Yorkshire, I might add) so to me the item is totally useless. 08 September 2016

Follow the simple steps below to check whether you are able to use your smartphone to access TomTom Traffic on this device:

1. Go to Settings in your smartphone

2. Check whether there is something called Personal Hotspot (on iPhone), Tethering and portable hotspot (on Android under more settings) or Internet Sharing (on Windows phones under System Applications) 3. Check that you can turn on the Personal Hotspot (iPhone) or Bluetooth® tethering (Android).

4. Finally please check that your phone has a valid data connection by opening a web browser – checking that a page will load.

If all the above steps work, then your smartphone is compatible with a Smartphone Connected device

How much data will TomTom Traffic via Smartphone use?

On average, if you drive for an hour per day during peak time traffic, you will use approximately 7MB data per month. This is less than the equivalent of downloading or streaming 2 music tracks per month (which use around 5MB each).

The amount of data that is exchanged depends on:

  • Frequency of use – TomTom Traffic is a real-time service. The more you drive, the more often your device will request traffic updates, which could result in considerably higher data usage.
  • Time of day - during rush hour there are usually more traffic incidents. This means more data needs to be transferred than when roads are quiet (i.e. at night or in the middle of the day).
  • TomTom Traffic relies on a mobile phone signal. In rural locations, Traffic Information may cease to be provided until you are reconnected.

Free map updates are only available over the internet and you will need a Broadband connection.

The maps can be quite large and may take a few hours to download dependent on the speed of your internet connection.

Four maps per year are supplied directly from TomTom over the internet for the lifetime of the product.

You will need to plug in the device to either a PC or Mac. A small programme will be downloaded and installed. The most recent map will be downloaded and installed. You will then receive prompts and emails informing you when a new map is available to download and install.



Western Europe - 2811.15 MB – Approx 3 hours on a 2Mb/s Connection

UK & Eire - 305.73 MB – Approx 30 minutes on a 2Mb/s Connection

Please ensure your internet connection is stable, and that you have the available bandwidth on any Fair Usage Policy you may have with your internet service provider to download the map updates.
