Woolworths have the cheap Navman one now for £199. Seems to be good value.

I got a nav system yesterday. It came free with a brand new Rangerover HSE V8 which I picked up from Landrover yesterday.

By the time I got to the M40 I had bust it!

I was taking a couple of Germans from a meeting near Chester to a meeting in Sheffield and not paying much attention (to the road or the Germans).The GPS took me of the motorway and up some initially promising roads in the right sort of direct Eventually found myself in the back streets of Glossop looking for a road my gps had made up.

Should have taken them to Torquay - I know of a nice little hotel where they would be very welcome!!!

Just remember not to use whichever one you DO buy when driving anything tall (luton transit, lorry etc).
All the ones I've ever used don't route you to avoid low bridges...

Agree with codders about lap-top , and Autoroute express. The only problem with a laptop is ensuring that it is securely anchored and easily visible.
I find the small screens eg tom tom, ipaqs and most of the inbord stuff TOO
SMALL. to see. I use as back up an IPAQ 5455 with Fugawi soft and or the ppc version of Autoroute. I tried to find a small laptop with a 9" screen and the only one it seems is one of SONY's vaio- eat your heart out JW!!!!!!
