Is there any difference in functionality between a sat nav connecting via a sim card and one connecting via a smart phone?

    Hi @TPSOC

    Both give you the same information but in different ways.

    For the device which comes with the build-in SIM, you need to pay a one time cost when you purchase the device while for the device which connects to TomTom Services using a smartphone data charges will apply.

    On average, if you drive for one hour per day during peak-time traffic, you will use approximately 7 MB of data per month.
