I wouldn't be without mine.it's just a basic TomTom cost most of £200, bet you can get it for less than £100 now....terrific.
There are those who can drive, read a map and talk on the phone, all at the same time....I'm not one of 'em and I find the SatNav. invaluable.
Thanks thats a good start anyone else ??
Another vote for Tom Tom. The top of the range models have bluetooth that can be linked to mobile phoenes for hands free use plus even the later versions have MP3 players.
I bought one in 2006 just to drive down to the South of France and I couln't praise it highly enough. Worth every penny even just to add it to the cost of the holiday.
It has to be Tom Tom. - gary
Tomdiddlytomtom it has to be.
I'll go with Tom Tom.
I was never convinced until a trip to the continent with friends who owned one. We fancied a stop on a long haul, just asked it to find the nearest hyper market and restaurant, which came up in a flash and it took us straight there. Magic!! Bought mine on our return and wouldn't be without it.
Well to buck the trend I'd recommend Garmin. Personally I find them easier to use than TomTom's and this month's Which has the Nuvi 1490T, 1310 and 1210's as their Sat Nav best buys scoring higher than TomToms, Navigon etc..
oh no thats upset the balance no
i was all set on Tom tom but now ????
Before spending money on any GPS, does your mobile have GPS and a windows operating system? I binned my Garmin and use my mobile with google maps now.
No,get a Tom Tom that's what i use and has never let me down.I have seen some of the others but the tom tom is just so easy to use even i can work it. Ewan
Used Garmain for a couple of years without problems. Spoke to the sales person at Halfords once who reckoned that approx 50% of cheaper brands - Navman for example - get returned. I have no experience of these brands however. Have you thought of looking into a satnav via your phone?
If you delve deeper into this subject, There are hardware GPS units from brands other than Tom Tom.
Many of these other brands can be loaded with the Tom Tom software maps etc etc, However the actual units are in many cases cheaper than Tom Tom branded items.
Lots of buyers opt for the known brand because its easier, If your savvy with such technology, Your options are greater.
