Post by Basit » Sun Jul 08, 2007 12:01 am

These are Sat Navs which cost around £99. Are they worth what they cost? how r they compared to the tomtoms?

Why don't you just buy a pocket pc, and then install tom tom on there which you could download for free :D with all the Poi etc ! Buy a Gps Reciever preferbly bluetooth and away you go :D

And these days you can get wifi ones, and many other feautres :D

I do think the design is quite attractive and obviousely dats just a bonus but it also has all the essential features a sat nav shud have and plus the mapping sounds reli good and its a new make tho so im not sure about reliability just yet. its also got an MP3 playa as an extra
