This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

I know its a lot for a satnav and there are plenty of free options that run on mobile phones, but i still prefer a dedicated Satnav unit rather than use my phone, which i keep safely locked in my armerest when driving. No doubt people will say what alternatives can be had (eg free options like google maps, waze) but this is a fantastic price for this model of SatNav, for those looking for a dedicated PND.

This has a built in Sim card, so o need to tether with your phone and it receives speed camera updates over the air (although TomTom can take a week or so to update the cameras when they change)

In my experience, the traffic is second to none, and this is the main reason I use a SatNav. I also use the Nav unit every time i go abroad, as it saves me money renting and time, as im using a device that i know how to use from the off.

For those that like to use their phones, great, but please don't vote down because there are other options available. I, like many others tend to take a lot of calls in my car and i cant be bothered with the map being interrupted every time someone calls.

PS,at the point of wrighting, there is also an Amazon warehouse version for £169.99

Amazing piece of kit. Traffic is always spot on. Used across all Europe and very happy.
I still favor my Go 5000 over trying any of the phone based solutions, but only as I bought it before any of those solutions were really viable alternatives and I because I completely trust the accuracy of the navigation and traffic alerts. If it died tomorrow and I had to decide on how to replace it, I'm not sure that I'd still be willing to drop 200 notes on a dedicated unit, especially with integrated Android auto & car play getting better and more prevalent. As you say, there will still be edge case users for whom a dedicated PND is a must, but I reckon those cases are probably getting fewer by the day. It does annoy me that every generation of TomTom seems to come with more free stuff (maps, camera updates, etc) yet those of us who paid the same amount for an older generation device have to continue to pay a premium for the same services (my speed camera updates are not free). I've also had to replace the mount for my Go at least 3 times due to TomTom's dodgy design on the USB socket and each time they are harder to find and more expensive to buy as TomTom keep changing the mount design and so old ones get discontinued (I know I could buy a 3rd party alternative but they're never as good in my experience). The next time I need a new mount may be enough to push me over to Google maps, especially if my next car has wireless Android Auto integration.

I agree, I don't actually like having the Satnav on the windscreen, but my 2015 BMW (that doesn't support android) is useless. I even purchased the BMW traffic service costing about £70 for the year, but the traffic or only covered major roads and was sketchy. If my next car supports android auto, I may move away from a dedicated PND.
I used to like TomTom sat nav but they decide the end of life of the device not you. So I have a perfectly useable device that doesn't get updates because TomTom says no.

What device is that?
It's an XL. I only used for UK maps so plenty of storage. TomTom decided it was end of life as they think everyone should have capacity for all of Europe.
Now £162.07 for the ‘traffic via smartphone’ option
