The reviews from Amazon for the Sat Nav look good seems like a good deal to me.

Not that great a deal.

Can find plenty of places selling this around the same price and probably cheaper with a voicher code.

Voted cold.

I have heard mixed reviews about this, (well Nuvis in general) compared to the streetpilots. I currently run a streetpilot but quite like the size of this thing. For £99 it can sit in the glove box.

Without sounding nasty then, why not post the cheaper deals? Might help folks to save a few quid, one of the main reasons for this place

Name names, give us links and 'voicher' codes. No use being billy big mouth if you're not prepared to share the deals. I want one of these and if you can get it cheaper, give us the links or shut up. :thumbsup:

[email protected], and here was me saying the same, but being diplomatic :)
BTW, i have one of these got one late last year when someone posted that Asda were knocking them out for the same price.
Great little gadget. Don't use it much i'll admit, but when called upon, never let me down. Add the speed camera database and the POI (Points of Interest) database and it can become really useful if you travel a lot. Cannot compare it to other's since it is only the 2nd sat nav i have owned, owned an i3 before and is a big step up from that. Good price

I've had both Streetpilots and Nuvis (as well as TomTom on PDA etc) - currently got a Nuvi 370T (£149.97 PCWorld) - bought this one as we needed the USA and Canada maps as well as the UK and Europe.

The Nuvi I've got works a lot better than the Streetpilot (I had a C510T). The Streetpilots are bulky, tell you to turn far too early (sometimes two streets away) and the TMC doesn't give you any detailed information. The Nuvi on the other hand is smaller, tells you to turn at the right time and gives you more detail on TMC problems.

The addition of Bluetooth on the Nuvi is good as well - instant hands free kit!!

You might find a 610T if you're lucky. These were posted on HUKD about 2 weeks ago as an offer at PC World for £119. I magaged to get one.
The 610T is the widescreen model with FM Traffic. Only had mine for 2 weeks but can't really fault it so far.
Read a lot about Garmins not being able to find satellites but mine is excellent.
You will not be likely to find any in PC World but Currys however, who are part of the same group are also selling it at the same price. Currys definitely had some in stores in my area mid week but expect these will be the last batch. The 610 is UK only.
HUKD offer also mentioned the 370 I think, check postings for about 2 weeks ago.
Hope that helps. I did see 610T's being bid at over 150 on ebay .

The 610T has gone back up to £199.97

Currys are trying to get a ridiculous amount for the 370T:

YES I agree, I saw that early last week BUT if you check in store you will find prices are different.

Thursday 3rd Apr in Swindon Currys they had 610T on display for 119, I asked what stock was around and there were several others around Bristol area.
GET TO A STORE AND ASK.............

I've had a Nuvi 300 for ages. I don't even want to think about how much I paid compared to this offer. They're really nice little things, easy to slip into a pocket when you leave your car. It always gets a satellite lock quickly, it's instructions are clear, it's loud enough to hear over the car stereo and engine, and it recalculates the route if you decide you know better (what? I'm a man, I just do).

Downsides are that the battery doesn't last all that long (about 4 hours) so you have to have it plugged into the lighter socket and have wires trailing around the car which is minor but it bugs me, and there's features which noone in their right mind would ever use (pictures? MP3s? why?! I'm in my car.. it has a CD player!).

I'd recommend it at this price.

Oh, and the best feature? You can change the little icon that represents where you are so you can have an arrow (dull), a little boxy thing that looks like an old model Micra, or an SUV, or my favourite, a sports car that looks like a 60s Jag. And you can change the colour of it to match your car. :)

I have a Nuvi 300 from when they was launched when it was £300+ at the time, Its very good and is compact enough to carry around and very handy to have ive never felt need to bother upgrading it as i couldn't see nothing major new on newer models for me to pay out again £99 is well worth money imo.
#16
I had a Nuvi 300 when they were sold off at Asda recently. Was a lovely little device, very compact and got a lock very quickly, but it used to give me some odd routes.
Sending me down mile after mile of single lane tracks sometimes to cut the corner off a main road route.
Tried it on all the different settings and I just couldn't get on with it.
#17
ive got the navigo 59.99 at ebuyer ,i mist it at 49.99 , my son had a mess with it i now have it abel to run tomtom, mio & the turbodog it came with, there is a big thred on ebuyer on how to hack it , hope this is of use to some one.
#18
Quite like the look of this but reviews I have read are mixed. A big problem is that they send you down country lanes. I have a garmin i 3 and have to admit i do ignore it at times as it is obviously not making the best choice. Is this true, or are have people just set it up wrong?
#19
If you end up down country lanes it will have been set for SHORTEST ROUTE more than likely.

I've never had any problems, other than the occasional insistence that I cannot turn right at some traffic lights, but that will be due to the map provider (Navteq) having **** data rather than Garmin themselves.

I used to have TomTom on various pda devices and that was a ****** for sending you down stupid roads.

I tried mine on all the different options, and it always wanted me to go down tiny country roads.

I have a Sony Nav-U82 now and the routeing in that is much better.

Do you have a link with instruction on how to install Tomtom in it?

The problem with Garmin units, and some of the obscure routes their units choose, isn't settings or Navteq (ie mapping) data.

It's a fundamental change in their routing algorithms that took place some years back. The mapping data most certainly includes class of road as well as the speed rating of the road. However, their modern algorithms only take into account the latter factor on their sat nav units.

A good point, most of the major sat nav units have their foibles and / or strengths and weaknesses of their own.
