I have been looking for a cheap Sat Nav with lane assist and turn previewing and came across this Becker unit online for £97.89 with a £10 gift voucher. It looks great, has quite favourable reviews (from the few ive read) has full European maps, lane assist, turn previewing (which I know Tomtom had from day one) and TMC. From what Ive read TMC is no where near as good as Traffic Master but you normally have to pay for a TMC aerial for other basic Sat Navs so its good that its in there for free. It says on the blurb that TMC auto route diversion is only available in some European Cities (not uk) The mapping is done by Navteq which is the one used by Garmin so that's reassuring (to me anyway as im replacing this unit from a Nuvi) I also think this unit is hackable as it runs WINCE5 so you should be able to run Mp3/Movie players and other CE apps.
Another freebie from out of the box is a Years free Speed camera updates! Yeah they probably won't be as good as the Pocket GPS database but it only has to save you once to stop you from getting from at least 3 points and a £60 fine.
This is the basic info from the main page:
Better than half price!
In store was prices £299.99, £149.99, £119.99
