Take the best route possible
Find the best route for your journey with the TomTom GO Essential 5 inch Sat Nav. With the MyDrive app, you can use your smartphone to plan the route you want as you travel across the country including your favourite scenic stops, petrol stations and restaurants.
Once you've synced up your phone, the sat nav uses a small amount of data to deliver real-time traffic and speed camera updates (with subscription after first six months), so you can keep your speed in check and avoid getting caught in traffic by making adjustments to your route on the fly.
Staying safe behind the wheel is top priority - the GO Essential Sat Nav can read your text messages out loud with your permission, so you can keep your phone screen off and your eyes on the road. And if you want to reply to your friend, you can make a hands-free call using the built-in microphone.
This sat nav works with Siri and Google Now, so you can give a quick voice command to change around your calender without interrupting your route if you're running late.
Plan a holiday for the ages
The GO Essential Sat Nav comes with pre-installed maps that cover all of Europe, so you can have reliable guidance on your adventures for years to come.
Plus, TomTom has loads of pre-installed, handpicked road trip routes for you to try when planning your next holiday. Then, share your trip with your family and friends to inspire the next group of adventurers.
