    Anyone have any views on this sat nav?

    http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/s...oductId_566069

    I do have a tomtom but some nugget borrowed it, has not returned it and I need one tomorrow so will get one from halfrauds in the morning.

    Its a budget unit, not looking for fancy frills or anything but are they quite accurate / dependable?

    if you would like the opion of a halfords employee :P
    go for the garmin 205 or 200 as these are easier to use AND most of all you dont need to pay for updates or subscription charges unlike navigon who i think charge monthly? (not including "safety" cameras as thats the goverment scabbing money.. again..)

    I only need it for tomorrow so it will probably be a one use wonder, just wanted to know if it was reliable, not looking to keep it for any length of time. I have my tomtom (when / if I get it back!)

    Do you know of any issues with it?

    value for money wise its a good little unit
    but they tend to break more often than tomtoms or garmins
    if its a one off thing then you cant beat it for what you get
    (would recommend ordering online and collecting in store as its cheaper and they cant "price match" to the web site "offers").
    hope this helps

    I was given one of these as a present last Christmas, but cannot really say if it is accurate for UK because mine has greek maps . The device itself looks pretty nice, doesn't look cheap at all, opposing to many other low priced gps devices. I think it is a good quality product with good value for money. I m pretty happy with mine and I don't really know if it is worth buying a more expensive one.
