Maybe it's down to personal pref but most people I know prefer it to the mega expensive in car systems or road angel.
For speed camera I use an overlay in the POI file on the Garmin. No verbal indicator, but as I don't use "sound" on the bike I can live with that.
Ditto “comedy” voices. I use mine as navigation tools.. if I want comedy I’ll go to the Glee Club..
Cheap? Just bought another 2610 for £189 (Inc VAT) my first one cost nearly £600… Go figure
.. including the latest version of Mapsource. How much is an equivalent TomTom with European mapping?
Loads of maps.. unless you happen to want to visit Ireland or “East” Europe. Do they provide more than Mapsource?
How is the TomTom routing/recording capability against the Garmin?
oh...and my Garmin has never fallen of its mounting on the bike... unlike the TomTom rider....
