    Hello everybody,
    I am here as I need an advice regarding the purchase of my first ever GPS navigator.

    I was looking at TomTom website and I am interested in TomTom Go 520, but please, I have some question :

    - once bought it, maps download and all other features like traffic updates, will be always for free?
    - - should I pay a subscription like an annual one?
    - - - what is the main difference between the 520 and 5200 model ?
    - - - - what is the main difference between Go520 / Start and Via ?

    I hope to receive your answer !

    Have a nice day all !

    TomTom Model(s):
    720; 1535 LIVE; Via 1605; Go 50; Go 520
    Here's some info about a 5200:

    and here is stuff about a 520:
    https://www.tomtom.com/en_gb/sat-nav/car-sat-nav/products/go-520/

    Major difference is the 5200 has a built in SIM card to get traffic info. The 520 requires a smart phone in association with MyDrive to get the traffic.

    I think services like traffic are always free for both but confirm with support and get further information from them:
