Mate bought a road angel - binned it and went back to his Ipaq setup - remember TomTom do stand alone GPS as well now - one of the best sellers.
Yea the stand alone I just bought is much better but still not the best, but the older stuff (by 2 years) was shit,.... nothing beats the incar stuff provided by the top names.
Tom Tom used to get their maps from 'Teleatlas' that also supplied to BMW AUDI etc, and there was no way Teleatlas was giving licence to Tom Tom to sell its 'latest' maps,.. which was a system you could buy from Tom Tom for 300 notes when the dealers charged £3k for a sat nav option in a new car from the same map suppliers!
Still its better than a map and a torch
