I'm after getting a Sat Nav for my dad for father's day. Does anyone have any advice on which one to get him?

The Medion one is a good price, and he knows his way about fairly well so wouldn't entirely rely on it... meaning it's an attractive option.

But I know there are ones out there where you can look for restaurants in the local area, etc. And ones where if you slow down it'll zoom in. What other good features do other Sat Navs have, and which is the best price?

Go for a TomTom as they are very easy to use and features can be updated (free & cost) from their website!!

Hi mate nothing is free to update on any sat nav as you have to pay to update speed cameras etc what ever you buy but i must say Garmin are the best by far and if you go to http://www.satnaveasy.co.uk/home-page-c1.html you will get a very good deal from this company. And if you find one you like at better price they will beat that price and you will get free post and packing if you phone up and order it and ask for it. I got a garmin 310 from this company and its brilliant, works graet and you get with this modal 30 days free updates. If you buy a garmin email me and let me know and ill give you some web sites where you can download free Resaurants,pubs,fish n chip shops,hotels holiday parks etc etc etc. :roll::thumbsup::roll::thumbsup:

It depends how much you want to pay. Prices range from about £40 to around £500+. How generous are you? ;-) As with most things, the more you pay the more you get.

I'd suggest a TomTom One, Feature wise a TomTom 930 however the TomTom One still has a majority of the great basic features and the best thing about TomTom's is their ease of use.

Garmin are usually pretty good and they generally use Navteq map data which seem to be slightly more upto date than the Teleatlas map data most TomTom's use.

The Medion is a great deal and at that price you can't really go wrong, I'm sure it'll do it's job and get him from A>B perfectly. Not sure how updatable they are map wise but at <£45 their almost disposable..!!!

I'm pretty sure one day Satnav's will probably be sold in poundland....!!!.

Hmm. I might get him the Medion one. He is slightly sceptical about them to be honest... :)

The navigo from ebuyer was £50 and you can get the software from tomtom with places of interest and speed cameras from various websites I would suggest a search of HUKD forum history for full information, also has a good holder for in car use and to be honest unless you go to many strange areas all the time you don`t use it that much

Hmm. Places of interest might be a good feature for him. :)

I have a Tom Tom one, after trying and taking back two other Sat navs (as got from Costco, so easy to return ). I find the Tom Tom really easy to use and would recommend it to anyone.
