Very impressed but only bought because TomTom stopped supporting my old model
Works just fine and the windscreen clip makes it easy to remove when parked. The ability to update maps via WiFi (no computer needed) is excellent and much appreciated. Very easy to set up and lots of voices to choose from. But not happy when TomTom refused to supply any more LIFETIME maps to the old model though. They sure do have a strange idea of what "lifetime" means. Hope they support this model more than they did their earlier ones.
Purchased for A$209.00.

Great sat nav that has all the features you need
I have always owned a cheap sat nav and decided it was time for an upgrade not wanting to pay for new maps.
So I took the plunge on this device and its awesome. There are so many great things about it but these are my favourite:
1. Wifi so when you update you don't need to connect any wires to it.
2. Lifetime maps and speed camera updates which is awesome!
3. My favourite - a magnetic clip on mount. So you mount stays on your dash and you can simply take it off in seconds pass to the navigator who can looks stuff up etc or to put awa...
Questions & Answers
I have a tomtom 5200. At the time I purchased I thought it was great and it was fantastic for a while. Now my tomtom sim card doesn't connect to traffic (really bad) it uses GPRS for traffic but now my traffic on my device is always disconnected. I have used the mydrive app to connect to my android phone to see if I could traffic data that way. I managed to get phone messaging and hand free calls working but on the tomtom data for traffic always shows unable to connect. on the mydrive app it shows that I have tomtom traffic activated until 2023 but still I have no traffic data on my device. The tomtom Go 5200 is an expensive device but without traffic the device is not worth the price, as for hands free calling and messaging using the mydrive app I would say most newish cars support this better now anyway so I don't use those features.
