Motorhome accessory review: TomTom Go Camper

f34f4c88-3d62-490d-91db-9c62de3d08fa

If you’re looking at buying a new motorhome and wondering whether to tick the optional extras box for a built-in sat-nav, you might want to consider a portable one, such as the Go Camper from TomTom, instead.

There are a couple of reasons for this. Like any technology – from mobile phones and tablets to computers and TVs – such gadgets have a tendency to become outdated within a few years. With sat-navs, it’s usually the software that becomes obsolete. Portable sat-navs are usually cheaper than built-in ones, and at least they’re easily replaceable when they eventually die.

When it comes to choosing a portable sat-nav, opt for a motorhome/caravan specific one, which allows you to input the dimensions and weight limit of your vehicle, so you shouldn’t be taken down unsuitable roads. Make sure it comes pre-installed with maps for the countries you’ll be travelling in, too, and that these are easy to update.

The TomTom Go comes with worldwide maps and free lifetime updates via WiFi, so you won’t have to plug it into your computer and faff around with downloading software. It’s easy to operate, has a 6in display screen, and costs £379.99.
