It does warn about this on the packaging, but my Discovery has the heated screen and my Navman iC630 works ok, so it maybe worth trying one out if the salesman will let you.

Here's one I'm.........

......also very proud of. I managed to sweet talk a G.W.R Track Official (Badge No 7887264) who very kindly allowed me access to a "Staff Only" restricted area of Euston Station where I managed to snap this shot of the newly recoved and renovated roof. If you require exact dimensions, number of labour hours and materials used, feel free to ask.

Thank you for enclosing those simply delightful photos, and congratulations on gaining access to such an exciting viewpoint on Euston Station's roof. Interestingly, GWR official badges with the '788' serial number prefix were unique in having an unusually high pewter content and nowadays are highly sought after amongst the railway cognoscenti.

I have attached a fascinating link to my own commuter station, Liverpool Street, which following extensive refurbishment in recent times now boasts one of the finest concourses seen in Britain. I do hope you enjoy the video as much as I did.

And since you're a mate, I'll even show you one of my hottest X-rated vids, which if my mum finds means I'm dead meat.

Oh Phill, how cruel of you.......

.........upon opening the above attachment I was immediately transported back to the shocking moment depicted during the 1968 classic "The Railway Children" (Directed by Julia Smith - Starring Jenny Agutter, Gillian Baily and the late great Fred Treves), when the 14.24 from London steams from the tunnel heading straight toward the fallen tree.

As you are very well aware I suffered tremendous bout of stress follwing the release of this film and still today find myself under the counsel from one of Manchester leading Psychiatrists, you're so cruel.

Ooooh, you little tease. How did you know that Jenny Agutter was my childhood pin-up? I hope the following picture relieves your stress somewhat - it certainly does mine
