World maps provide access to roads all over the world, perfect for a road trip from anywhere from Europe to North America and Africa. Get the latest maps with free updates over WiFi.

Speed camera alerts

Advance warnings let you know whenever you're approaching a fixed, mobile or regular speed camera, with a remind of the speed limit. Receive camera locations free of charge for the lifetime of your sat nav.

Hear texts and take hands-free calls

The TomTom Go 520 speaker and microphone are designed for high quality hands-free calls in the car. Simply connect your phone via Bluetooth to see who's calling on the screen of your sat nav and hear text messages so you won't have to look at your phone.

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). 

What is free Lifetime Traffic?

Lifetime Traffic is a premium real-time traffic information service that shows exactly where delays start and end so you always know 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. 
Lifetime Traffic is included with this premium sat nav device and cannot be transferred to another sat nav device or smartphone app.
