I was lucky too - but have some heat.

whsmith do not do quidco cashback on sat navs from the 1st of feb, other than that a good deal
#3
Guess I was lucky then I had nearly £3 back especially on the first one I ordered
[helper]#4
Puzzled as to why this is being voted cold - unless its because it was available in the past at £40? (handy for those with a time machine)

Its the best price at the moment (unless someone knows better) so its hot
#5
Does it use SD cards and if so upto what size.

I got two of these when they were down to £39.99 (+Quidco) with the idea that I'd use one primarily as a Sat Nav in the car and the other as a MP4 player for the train (and as a backup Sat Nav in case the other one was playing up).

The TurboDog software that it comes with is very poor in my opinion, and my only previous Sat Nav experience was of a Navman icN510. That's a few years old now but it's much better than the TurboDog. However, it is very easy to install Tom Tom V7 onto this and that works much better. Just download the software for free from the web and follow the enclosed instruction file.

The device does use SD cards, and I even used a 8GB SD-HC card to try the mp3 and video capability.

The mp3 player is fine (the Sat Nav even comes with ear phones!). Sadly, I personally found the device too slow to play video files to a good enough standard.

The real sad new is, I took one of the Sat Navs back because I decided I didn't need two and the wife's boss decided he'd rather pay £80+ for a Tom Tom than £40 for a Tom Tom enabled Navigo! Fool!

Although the turbodog software in these is pants, once you've installed tomtom they run like a dream!!! really really fast the hardware is top notch, absolute bargain for a future proof sat nav
#14

#15
HOT.....

I've got a 2Gb card in mine. I've got the one with bluetooth and FM transmitter from ebuyer but essentially the same kit.

The mp3 player is fine (the Sat Nav even comes with ear phones!). Sadly, I personally found the device too slow to play video files to a good enough standard


I find that DVD rips that are 600Mb in size are a bit jumpy at times. However, as the screen is small it might be worth re-sizing the files. I am sure that they'd play fine then.
#18
Which NaviGo is this, exactly?

V2?
#19
Come on drop this to £39.99 again please, really on a tight budget. Got all Tomtom apps and maps ready to go on as well!

I bought this instore today for £45 - using a £5 off voucher [£49]
Wanted it today you see; and now QuidCo no longer applies to SatNav sales, I thought why not.

Anyway, I'm going off on a tangent, as the reason for my post is this.
If you buy and install better software- you will have got yourself a fantastic little SatNav system
However - my included SD card wasn't formatted to Fat32. This doesn't affect the included [and rather poor] Sat Nav software - but it does slow the 3D screen redraw significantly - as bad as 3-5 seconds on other leading SatNav software.

So - first of all back up your SD and then format it to FAT32 [or FAT16]
Don't just copy your replacement software straight across.

I did this and now the screen update is as quick as a more expensive unit
This might not apply if you use your own SDHC - but it is certainly a worthwhile step if you intend to use the included SD card.

It's a great unit for the price and works a treat.
The actual unit is physically smaller in depth than the TomTom [but same screen size]
My g/f even commented it is quite cute, which means it has passed her acceptance test :) [only joking]
The sound is a bit more 'tinny' than a real TomTom and distorts on full volume. However I found 70% volume to be a happy medium between clarity and volume.

In car cradle is actually very good, and not as bad as some people report [but I might be less fussy]

It does play back video and mp3 - and you can hack it to function as PDA.
But to be frank; they are features I'm not that interested in beyond a quick play around. It's not as good in these modes, as say a MP3 player, video player, or PDA...

Voted hot, and rep added
#21
Has anyone managed to view any ebooks on this unit?
#22
Can someone confirm the following for me: In order to get TomTom running from this device, I would have to follow the Navigo tutorials - which I presume will be accessible via a Google search - on hacking WinCE. Does that sound about right? Also, some of my colleagues have mentioned to me that although one can essentially have TomTom running from a non-TomTom SatNav, it will never be as good as the original because of readily-available updates from the TomTom website, etc, when u purchase the real thing. Can someone please confirm or elaborate on this matter please? Thanks!
#23
hot. also got one at £40 and would recommend.

I probably isn't as good as the latest TomTom software in that you can't update online but then again a genuine TomTom can't run MemoryMap, iGo8, MioMap etc. Why would you want anything other than TomTom? Well for one thing the maps on iGo and MioMap don't need activating and seem easier to get hold of.... and I believe cover more countries. I prefer the iGo8 anyway and notice there are new skins for it on PCTailor which should make it even better (off to try it now).
#25
Hi , any one know if it shows speed cams?
#26
So Tom Tom provides the software free of charge or is there any licence fee.
#27
No TomTom don't provide the licences, the maps people are downloading from Pctailor are essentially hacked pirates. But if that doesn't bother you, do as we've all done and go and get them!!:thumbsup:
#28
got one at £39 and quidco, installed tom tom..(or Jon Joe) if you're from Norn Iron....well worth the money....still hot...

Some of your colleagues are probably feeling a little silly for paying over the odds and trying to sucker you into doing the same. This might not get updates as directly, but you can always go looking for them online every now and again. I think it is possible to download updates from Tom Tom onto SD card anyway, but this isn't something I've tried. At the end of the day, this does the same job as theirs for half the price or less.

Now if we could only find a valid discount code / voucher to use online at WH Smith in conjunction with this deal ;-)

Says that on Quidco, but I've just ordered through quidco & £3.15 has tracked & now validated. Estimated payment date June though. Worth a try, nothing to lose if you're ordering anyway, & not a member of topcashback.

Thanks OP - finally taken the plunge and bought a Sat Nav. Purchased instore yesterday for £45 using the £5 voucher. I think Ebuyer were charging £50 at the time.

Some Navigo feedback
The good
Lots of information on internet - not so much from manufacturer but plenty elsewhere.
Someone mentioned that Motorola phone charger works with Navigo (5V) and the V3 charger seems to work fine - saves using USB (which does charger albeit slower) or buying separate AC charger.
Great value for money.
Small
Touchscreen works fine, once I'd discovered the stylus! (not helped by instructions - see below)

The bad
Speaker poor - maybe a different voice would help but only 1 on Turbodog.
V1 had a slider on/off? - probably better than the push button on V2
Instructions not great - couldn't work out how to get PC to recognise Navigo - from memory (Sat Nav charging) have to go into settings / USB and take the option for storage, not charging. Also manual makes reference to the parts of the Navigo unit but the illustration of the Navigo is missing.
Disk with package apparantly contains the maps that are already on the SD card and copies of the manual, plus link to website where you can register. I took a backup copy of the SD card contents.

Not sure about battery life but I guess that none last very long and you always use in car charger.

Can't speak yet about TomTom - only tried the Turbodog (V5.1.4) which seems OK although on a local route took me a long way around. Can't beat local knowledge and I think I'd always have a map book with me just in case. Longer test to come.

So based on a local trial today and much time messing around with, I'd recommend. Hope some of this info helps someone.
