      Product information
      Top features:

      - Take the best route possible with real-time traffic updates

      - Stay safe by connecting your smarphone for distraction-free notifications

      - Plan a holiday for the ages with TomTom Road Trips

      Take the best route possible

      Find the best route for your journey with the TomTom GO Essential 5" 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. 

      Stay safe

      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. 

      What are free Lifetime Maps?

      You don't want to be driving through the town centre when there's a newly built bypass. Keep updated with changes to roads, junctions, addresses, and points of interest. With free Lifetime Maps you can download a full update of your maps at least four times a year.

      Updates are free of charge and provided for the useful life of the device (i.e. as long as the manufacturer supports it with software updates, services, content, or accessories). 

      What is free Lifetime Traffic?

      Don't get stuck in a jam. Find the best route to work, home, or ensure you get to your appointment on time with free Lifetime Traffic. It shows you exactly where the delay starts and ends so you can be confident you're on the fastest route.

      ‘Lifetime' means the period of time that the sat nav manufacturer continues to support your device with software updates, services, content, or accessories. The useful life of the smartphone app means the period of time that the manufacturer continues to support the app with updates.

      Just so much better than my now, old unsupported unit. Which was slow, fiddly to switch on/off and kept preparing daft routes.
      Only complaint would be that, for the money it would have been nice to have a protective bag included so when not in use the screen doesn't get scratched.

      How to request a price match

      Delivering your online order

      Get this delivered when it suits you

      We’ll show you your current delivery options for this item in checkout. Subject to the time you order, and where you want delivery, these options will include:

      • FREE standard delivery in 3-5 working days
      • Next day delivery or any following day between 8am & 5pm (£4.00)
      • Delivery in a timeslot of your choice next day or any following day (£10.00)
      Please note: if we’re out of stock of an item but getting more in, we indicate – on listings pages and the product page – how soon we can dispatch for delivery to you. In this case, please go ahead and order, and we’ll contact you later to confirm an exact delivery date.

      Availability Checker

      How and when can you get hold of your selections? Finding out should be quick and easy, so with just a few clicks our Availability Checker shows you:

      • Delivery dates, time-slots and prices
      • Local stores with stock you can collect from now
      • Local stores you can get items sent to for you to collect later
      To use our Availability Checker, simply:

      1. Enter a town or postcode in the box on the product page for an item you’ve selected
      2. Click on the magnifying glass
      3. Review the delivery and collection options local to you – just click on any one to add it to your basket

      Stock updates

      Find something you want but it’s not in stock? On the item’s product page, simply click on ‘Email me when back in stock’, and let us have your email address. We’ll let you know as soon as it’s available again.

      Returns and refunds

      Whether an item you’ve bought is faulty or damaged, or you’ve changed your mind, it’s easy to get a refund.

      Items you haven’t opened
      Within 21 days of receiving an item you paid for online, on the phone, or in store you can return it for a full refund – provided your purchase is still in its original and unopened packaging. This promise is in addition to your statutory rights.

      Items you’ve opened
      Within 14 days of receiving an item you paid for online or on the phone, you can return it, even if you’ve opened it. To receive a refund, you must:

      • Let us know you plan to return the item within 14 days of delivery/collection
      • Physically return it within a further 14 days.
      The item must be returned in ‘as new condition’ – not used or installed, and in its original packaging. More on returns and refunds.

      Order online and collect in store

      Sometimes you’ll want something even quicker than we can deliver. Or you can’t be in when our van or courier would arrive. That’s why we offer you the option to order online and collect in store.
      Subject to what you’re ordering and where you want to collect from, you can:

      Reserve & Collect – reserve online for free and collect at a local store as soon as you like. Once reserved, your item’s held till closing time the next day, to be paid for when you collect.

      Pay & Collect – pay online, and have the item sent, for free, from our warehouse to a local store for you to collect. Starting on the date the item arrives in store – which you choose in checkout – you have 28 days to collect it.

      Your fastest way to order online for collection is to use our ‘Availability Checker’ feature:

      1. Enter a town or postcode in the box on the product page for an item you’ve selected
      2. Click on the magnifying glass
      3. Review the collection options local to you – just click on any one to add it to your basket
