A sat­nav is use­ful for home or abroad. Our ex­perts put 11 through their paces

WIN­NER ■ Tom­tom Go 5200 £299.99, tom­tom.com/en_gb One of the best sat­navs we’ve seen. Clear vis­ual and au­di­ble di­rec­tions, a built-in Sim for traf­fic info and it works in Europe, too. Blue­tooth means you can have text mes­sages read aloud and make hands-free calls. Built-in wi-fi makes up­dat­ing maps a cinch. 91/100 GHI TIP: Re­mem­ber to up­date your maps be­fore you go. Con­nect your sat­nav to a com­puter to down­load the lat­est ver­sions.

Sat­nav apps (Google Maps, Waze and Ap­ple Maps) are good but use up data fast: 30min uses 8MB (but less if it’s a re­peat jour­ney, as the map is saved). And be­ware! You face tough penal­ties if you touch your phone when driv­ing.
