Binatone U505 5 Inch Sat Nav with Western EU Lifetime Maps - £39.99 at Argos (£43.94 for home delivery)

Found 18th Mar 2015
Cheap price for what seems to be an OK Sat Nav (4 out of 5 stars over 16 reviews), but with life time Western EU map updates.

In the Argos clearance, so great if you can find it in a local store (for £39.99), otherwise looks like home delivery is possible (£43.94).

ooos in 20 stores in West Yorkshire and Manchester area

Time to chase a wild goose again

oban,stranraer and fort william have 1 each they are the only ones in scotland

good deal heat given

Not sure why people buy these now, unless they really need the speed-cam info. I just bought an Android phone for £30 that has sat-nav built in, as most do now. Voice operated too.

I know it's 'fun' to mention the wild goose in posts but this is available online so not sure exactly why you feel your comment is relevant.

Well if none are available even at a cracking price maybe they have a point?

People who prefer and find usability better with dedicated devices rather than all-in-one device. Same human factor principles as to why people buy dedicated as opposed all-in-one : saucepan, printer, computer, tablet, speakers, pens,shoes, pants, jacket, watches, moisturising cream, food..etc.
Moreover, a dedicated sat nav does not constantly monitor and upload your private data to trading system data collectors as for Android.

Coincidence mate, I don't look for name of poster, I look only the contents, may be you re-iterated yourself on the theme of every post from others posting nice deals that you don't see the point of posting as one could do everything on the phone?

same old tosh. I'd rather have a dedicated sat-nav (admitted not a binatone) for many reasons, but primarily I find phones too quiet and too small, I've also yet to find a navigation app that comes any where near as effective. I could also use an android phone as a foot massager by standing on it and getting someone to call me, but I wouldn't do that either.

This +1!
plus it kills the battery.
And before any smart Alec says get a car charger. . . All batteries have limited charge cycles. So I'd rather kill the battery on £40 sat nav rather than a much more expensive phone. . . Which I might just need for other things such as making calls

I use my old iphone 4s with tomtom installed for short journeys. For long ones I use my nexus 7 mounted yo dashboard with velcro strips, I have installed sygic on the nexus 7.

I don't like using my phone for navigation

I need Jane from TomTom to guide me on a journey

Binatone make absolutely dreadful phones, I can't imagine their sat navs are any better. This is possibly why a sat nav from them is so cheap.......at a rough, purely speculative guess there.....

to all the people who are saying that they can use a phone for navigation, have you ever been overseas or done more than 10miles with that phone navigation? I have tested probably all of the navigation softs on phones and they are all USELESS if you want something decent, the maps/gps signal nowadays isnt that bad but still no1 hasnt made actually really usable navigation software when driving with Car not just walking in city...

use my old tomtom with cracked maps all the time over my phone,and I dont see this changing anytime soon until they actually launch a decent software for phones!

offline maps? I bought a 30 quid huawei y300 and stuck nokia here on it. attached to my bike, makes a decent sat nav and uses no data.

Anyone who thinks satnav units are better than modern phone apps : install 'Waze', its a free app just try it and come back to me. Low data usage monitors traffic and reroutes accordingly (for free! not for a premium)

This then.

prefer using me phone too.....but sure they reviewed this thing on fifth gear and it was meant to be suprisingly good

phone with live traffic data is the way to go. not to mention quicker road updates than Standalones.
