    Bye Bye B2....New Gadge

    After trialing a few SatNavs at work and finding them all pretty useless, unless you are less than 1 mile or 3 roads from where you want to be, I've finally taken the plunge and got myself one.

    Origin offered me £100 trade in for my B2 in return for a spanking new PogoDrive, so I thought what the heck



    Excellent bit of kit, but it will be staying on speed camera alert for most of the time

    Good one Geoff.... I know your dislike for sat navs in general but sometimes it is for the best. Even if it is just used once or twice its still a god send at times

    Great lookin piece of kit too... Whats the dimensions like compared to the B2?

    Maps will definately be staying.

    All the Satnavs tested spent al large part of the time telling me to turn round and go the other way. Even after they recalcualted the route, it was still not the way I wanted to go.

    and get them off road and they are just pure comedy

    Marti - it's about twice the size. Imagine 2 B2's on their side and that's about it

    they also do a pogo alert which is just a speed camera detector...it swends out a signal to capture the radar guns and not just relies on data bases

    The PogoAlert is not different in function to the B2 - it's just an updated version TBH.

    ..and it's a passive laser detector - not radar?)
