There are many people across the market who feel that Tom Tom sat nav's the easily the best sat nav's on the market in the UK, whereas other feel the Garmin's are the better.
Over the last few years, we've seen Tom Tom really close up to Garmin in their performance.
Whilst we have tested a selection, the biggest problem we had, which you can read the full review here which finally does compete with the best Garmin's across the market.
The VIA53 comes with a 5-inch screen, map and traffic updates for the life of the unit, however you still need to pay extra for things like speed camera alerts.
Overall a cracking device that is well worth the price.
Over the last year the sat nav market has moved on considerably with the introduction of many new and improved sat nav units from new and old manufactures.
Of all the units that we have tested, it's still the brand named sat nav devices that offer the best best value for money.
It's a fantastic satnav that comes with everything you need to drive from point A to point B quickly and easily without getting stuck in traffic.
There might be better navigators on the market, but there are none that offer the value-for-money of the Drive Smart.
If you choose correctly they should last you a good few years before you need to update with a newer model.
Yes you can get a cheap sat nav off the internet, however often these units either break quickly, have maps that are out of date within a few months or have a selection of fantastic features that honestly you will use once and then get bored.
