Prices for all satnavs will be dropping like raindrops soon as Google is now offering free turn-by-turn navigation on their new phones...

can anyone explain why this costs so much yet a navigo seems to do exactly the same thing but costs £57 (which has bluetooth, fm and can run tomtom software too)?

Well there's no doubt TomTom are charging a premium price but in my opinion they are the best. I had my first sat nav software running on a Psion many years ago and it was TomTom. They have been instrumental in developing the market.

Products like the Navigo have come along copying the hardware and they come with their own less able software which is also copying in principle. When people say it runs TomTom, what they usually mean is it runs a pirate copy of the software they have obtained.

You don't have to pay £250 for a TomTom that can add MP etc, these can be had for £150.

The Navigo is good value for money, but in my opinion, Tom Tom have it just right for when the voice comes on, lane guidance etc. and mine have taken me all over the country and with very few issues.

thanks for the info but cant justify paying 3 to 5 times the cost :thumbsup:

I would add that there is a bigger difference to the sat nav units than perhaps the obvious in your face stuff and that is the quality of the routing.

My car (bought second hand so I am not trying to brag here, just make a point) had sat nav fitted as an optional upgrade which set the original purchaser back £1800. The quality of the routing is dire and doesn't come near TomTom. If you are at point A and choose fasted route to point B it will find the nearest motorway and stick you on it, even if it doubles the length of the route and there is a dual carriageway running directly from A -> B. If you make the mistake of selecting shortest distance it will take you down a mixture of crazy roads that aren't usually the most direct (that is impressive going...) and seems to take forever. TomTom can be slightly guilty of this too but nowhere near as much in my experience. I am still using Navigagtor 7 on my PDA but do intend to upgrade to one of their go units eventually. Also they now let you plot routes on your computer using TT Home I believe which gives you ultimate control over how you get there, whilst being able to have a nice cup of tea.

It is worth remembering the above when comparing units I think, perhaps some of the others are more like my cars nav unit than TTs? (Just for the record I am not saying they are, I have no experience of any other).

Checking the prices on http:\\[url]www.find-satnav-deals.com[/url] seems you can get the new 950 from microwarehouse for £262.56

but surely cheap £50 ones that you put tomtom software on must be using their gps services etc :thinking:

Anyone got any advice on buying a sat nav which can be used on a motorbike as well as moved into the car, I would like to get oh one for Xmas, he insists he never gets lost, he's a rep and reps never get lost! (hmmm) - however I know otherwise and have spent many hours wasted in the car while he finds his way, I have heard motorbike sat navs are very expensive because they have to be weather proof. Help appreciated please.

A couple of quick points. If you are buying a cheap sat nav and putting Tom Tom on it, then for the vast majority it means pirated TT software. It isn't free. So yes, £50 unit plus free pirated TT software, of course it is cheaper and will work. It's the same as buying a computer and adding pirated Windows or Office or downloading a torrented album.

Live services, this is in my opinion useful, however sadly on some TT's it won't work with some Blackberry's which is a bloomin' disgrace considering so many people have Blackberry's. Issue still seems unresolved.

TT do motorbike units, look at their website.

I sound like I am a rep for TT, I'm not, they are not perfect but I think they are leaders in the field. Incidentally my TT has just gone wrong with a software malfunction, having to go back to them. First time I have had an issue in many years use, so will see how they deal with it. Was weird driving yesterday without sat nav and speed camera warnings!
