We get it, you’re lost. You need direction in your life – things need mapping out. Well, you’ve come to the right location. This is TechRadar’s guide to the best sat nav systems on the market right now.
These are the devices that rise above your phone’s GPS and the free maps you have been using.
The following sat navs are dedicated to giving directions, so will get you from A to B or C to G, if you ask them really nicely.
We’ve tried to feature devices that straddle a number of price points and offer a bundle of features that will make you want to get in your car right now and just drive. To be honest, we’d be lost without the following recommendations.
TomTom’s Via 53 very much sits in the mid-range category of sat navs. It offers connectivity options via a Bluetooth smartphone connection.
Through this connection, you get live traffic updates, can take advantage of hands-free calls and your text messages can also be read out by the device.
When it comes to mapping, the TomTom Via 53 is very good – the 5-inch touchscreen that requires light gestures, while voice control is warrantedEverything is clear and precise.
The design is a bit too chunky, however, and the one-hour battery life is a touch disappointing. Those niggles aside and what you have is a well-specced and connected sat nav that comes at a decent price.
