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.
