I use TomTom and find it to be very good on the whole. I was looking to buy a satnav for my son and looked at Navman. I tried the simple test of entering a postcode to see where it located it on the map and it got it wrong each time I tried. This was not a new postcode either.

I think TomTom have the best of the user interfaces but if you want to read up the reviews, I suggest http://www.pocketgpsworld.com.

Ill add abit more why this is ace:

Its UK and EUROPE! its a bigger screen (widescreen), and slimmer than most the TomToms. Its got some crazy picture thing, where you download pics off google, and pop them on here, and itll show you the route there.. it is the best piece of kit i seen at a reasonable price.

Also, Garmin use NavTeq maps which are more precise and better... where tomtom use their own version (cant remeber what they called? teleatlas or something)

check the spec: http://www.dabs.com/productview.aspx?quicklinx=534Q

TOM TOM are by far better, they have the more coverage then any other, i had a navman when delivering incenter of london but they fail due to the high buildings, so i got a tom tom 720 and never had a problem.
yes they are a lot more expensive but you pay for what you get.

TomTom don't use their own! You don't think a little company in the Netherlands has mapped all of the roads in the United States and Europe do you? :roll:

All satnav companies source their maps from one of only two or three in the world. The difference between each product is the difference between these companies' maps, the interface and the look-and-feel.

Years ago TomTom sourced their maps from a company (can't remember it's name but it might have been something like Atlas) whose node data was poor, meaning that it wasn't up to date on where you could turn legally. They changed their supplier and things improved. But of course if a council closes off a road or makes it one-way, then you will still be caught out. It's only a machine, after all.
