I've just ordered the new Tomtom Navigator 5 from www.handtec.com, it looks pretty special.
Anyone had any expereince with the Navigator range? Advantages/disadvantages? Ease of use? Accurate maps etc?
Mine will be used on a XDAII.
How much are they charging you inc in total?
If you don't mind me asking. I only question coz I may be able to get them for £190.
My mates got one. The menus are alot better and the database of roads is far far greater but it takes a bit longer to load a route due to its huge database. Very good at finding alternative routes!!!
It's £200 altogether,
Well I got it today and am pretty impressed. The navigation is easy and the maps seem fairly decent.
Has anyone tried Tomtom traffic? Is it worth the moeny? What about GPRS costs on your mob?
Your GPRS cost will depend upon how big the data is that is sent. You'll need to ask tom tom their average size as they won't have an exact figure as well as how often they send them. Then you'll have to look up your charges which will be dependant upon what tariff your on.
I've never used the tom tom traffic. Usually I just turn the radio on and tell it to listen for traffic annoucements. Then hit alternative route avoiding the certain road. The crucial factor is how often your on the road and if you have time to listen to the T.A.
Hope this helps a bit.
Yeah good point Jam, I think i'll just keep to the radio for the traffic and adjust if there's a jam or a road block.
GPRS could get quite expensive as well.
had tom tom sat nav on my pda on my van - was wicked, only slight downside is that they are a bit slow to put new roads on - 99% of the time was spot on !! also changes ur route if u miss a turn. good toy to have !!
