can you do a postcode address search

for some who are dyslexic and cannot always spell a street or address correctly does this device have an accurate postcode search facility ?

1 Answer

Hello Appazz, all TomTom devices are capable of Post Code searches. With the GO 50 model you can enter the post code and building number to be taken straight to the door. As an example, house number 54 at post code AB1 2CD should be entered into the TomTom as AB1 2CD 54. Matching addresses will be shown on screen, you just tap on the one you want to go to.

does it have voice rather than putting in details ? we are elderly and need a good sat nav thats easy to use

so if we can tell it what to do by voice this would be a mich better feature for us as we are not too good with technology husband is losing confidence in driving and i thought if i purchased a tom to for his birthday in a couple of days it may give him a boost to drive again ,, aged 64

Hi there,

I have looked into this and can advise that this model does have voice control.

Thanks for using Argos Q&A.

How does the live traffic function work?

I may have gotten the wrong end of the stick, but my understanding from the product description is that you connect your smartphone via bluetooth to the sat nav in order to receive live traffic updates on your journey - does this mean that the sat nav will be using your phone's data throughout the journey? Looking for a sat nav to use to get up to date traffic info during my drive to London each day - so if anyone has other recommendations they'd be welcomed!

Hi there, EmilyT. yes Argos was absolutely correct, you can turn your phone as a hotspot, then when tethered to your device you'll get real time updates every two minutes to cut down any time wasted on traffic jams. This link might also be helpful: . If you have any other questions, feel free to fire away. Cheers, Sam at TomTom.


Hi EmilyT,

The sat nav will use your phones data if connected to receive real-time updates.

Thank you for using Argos Q&A.
