Hey Folks,

Seeing as the new car front is looking pretty good, I was wondering what your opinions are of the Road Angel speed cam detectors, and you experiance of the best Sat Nav for your money.

I've borrowed one thats sent me the wrong way off the A1 (Which I ignored) and down the wrong way of one way Streets. (Again, ignored) While I know there'll always be errors, my navigation is worse most the time! :p

Sorry if this isnt the appropriate forum!

Regards

Izo

I rate the Garmin sat navs - they are small compact have European maps and ou can even buy OS maps for orienteering. You can download speed camera locations to many GPS mapping devices so you don't need a separate one in the car.

I have a NAVMAN on my Ipaq PDA which is ok but slow to startup and a bit out of date now with all these new roads and they want £90 to update the maps!

if i were you i would look on the internet for a site which compares dif 1s that way u will find the best 1 for you but b a lil careful because sometimes when people compare things they make the 1 they are selling sound better so look for a site which wont b bias

Had a play wiht a TomTom and it was pretty easy to use - only thing was that the nearest hospital to me is Calais? (Its a bit too far to swim though!) I think the Garmin is still my fave - slim & sexy!
