Your TomTom sat nav is easy to use. Just tap the screen to select a route or option. Start typing and the device will immediately show you a list of street names and places that match. Then tap on the place you want, and your sat nav will plan the best route there.

Never choose the wrong lane

Voice navigation and Lane Guidance helps you to navigate complex junctions by indicating the correct lane position for your next turn or exit so you'll never get lost on the motorway.

Locate nearby parking with Parking Assist

Finding a parking space can be a pain. Parking Assist helps you easily navigate to nearby parking spots.

Please note:

What are free Lifetime Maps?

Sat nav devices or smartphone apps with free Lifetime Maps allow you to download full updates of your map every year - stay up-to-date with changes to road networks, addresses and points of interest, as well as new businesses, road changes and junction alterations.

Updates are released at least four times a year and apply to the map that's pre-installed on your sat nav or included with your smartphone app. Geographical coverage and features will still match the original. 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).

Easy to set up, easy to see while driving as brightness settings on device. Voice directions are pretty loud and clear. Over all a decent sat nav for my first car.

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 5-10 working days
  • Next day delivery or any following day between 8am & 5pm (£5.00)
  • 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.

Important update on our delivery service for small items

Our courier partners (DPD, Royal Mail and On the Dot) have all updated their delivery processes to take extra precautions due to Coronavirus (COVID-19). Please follow the below advice:

1. Customers can use the DPD app to nominate a ‘safe place’ for their delivery to be left if they do not want close contact.

For customers unable to use the DPD app, DPD is still able to offer a contact-free delivery, and will take a picture of the property and capture a proof of delivery name instead of capturing a customer signature.

2. Royal Mail is an unsigned service . Where Royal Mail needs to deliver a parcel, its teams will place the parcel at the customer’s door. Having knocked on the door, the delivery teams will step aside to a safe distance while the item is retrieved. If the delivery cannot take place, Royal Mail will take the parcel to the local depot for collection by the customer.  The parcel will be held for 18 days as per normal process.

3. For On the Dot, where a standard signature delivery is not possible, On the Dot will attempt to leave the parcel in a safe place and inform the customer of where the parcel has been placed.

To see the courier partner for your delivery, please check your dispatch confirmation email (which will also include your tracking reference).

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
