Why would anyone buy a dedicated sat nav when you can get a smartphone for £60 with free offline google maps and live traffic that can do a bunch of other stuff too?

Cos in my experience it's far easier having dedicated device, plus, unless it's changed you can only download bits of google maps, time consuming and doesn't allow the freedom a sat nav does. When I use my phone I either use Google online or Here. In my opinion they are not as good as my tom tom.

Anyone know what "lifetime" means? I bought a Garmin SatNav with lifetime maps a few years ago. I recently started to use it again and tried to update it. I got a message stating that the model can no longer receive updates.

A few years probably

Yes. Just been on Garmin and lifetime does not actually mean lifetime.

"You will receive map data updates when and as such updates are made available on Garmin.com during the useful life of 1 compatible Garmin product or as long as Garmin receives map data from a third party supplier, whichever is shorter."

Garmin are taking a leaf out of Sonos is book,by the sound of it.

Meant to be lifetime of device, unfortunately the Garmin I had, the mini HDMI charge port became loose/faulty just out of warranty, thus it meant just over 12 month.

Never again for me, but decent price for a sat nav, admittedly.
don’t do it , terrible at routing , get a tom tom

Ever tried using google maps in the highlands or Norfolk? Satnavs don’t need a 4g signal to work that’s the reason
can these be clipped to an air vent (volvo v50)
Voted hot. Unfortunately not in stock anywhere near me.
I used to rave about the older TomTom's but Garmin SatNav's get my vote these days. The later/newer TomTom SatNav's have a horrible God awful slow, laggy user interface and buggy software. Garmin devices don't seem to have the same issues and are also future proof. Unlike TomTom's, the old and very old Garmin's can still be updated with software and new maps. Each to their own but I'm not a fan of TomTom anymore. Heat for this model at this price.

Yes, with the optional vent mount.

Spot on. Sat nav came to life in Black Forest Germany where all our phones were trying to get networks.

Its not illegal - UK Government Advice

And on my phone incoming calls appear at the top of Google maps as a discrete banner, they certainly don't interrupt the navigation.

I personally can't see any reason to use any navigation without live traffic these days.
Dont believe the Lifetime scam, it means a couple of years.

I can recommend the TomTom App on phones - you do pay £15 a year but it is very good with worldwide maps included and very accurate traffic, speed cameras etc- so cheaper than upgrading an older satnav device. It seems better than Google maps to me.

Except for speed camera updates, google maps doesn't need a mobile signal to work, offline maps uses GPS only.

That said I've always found mobile GPS less reliable than a dedicated satnav.

It’s not illegal mate, you can set it up before starting your engine/journey, and use it hands free.

No problem.

That's cause the GPS in a dedicated satnav is totally different to the ones found in mobile phones.
Just use google maps. Cant see the need for sat nav units now.

Navmii is free, but does speed cameras for a few quid extra... Also it downloads the whole country map, so you can use it abroad without burning data (or in the UK when there's no signal)...

Same here, we had a Tom Tom with my gf, but when I got the Kenwood Navigation headunit, I have never looked back. Prefer the Garmin software in the Kenwood. But like you say freedom of choice, and I am never Tom Toming again.
Also Free Life time map update.
Very reliable.

The TomTom App is very good and I prefer it to Google Maps as it is a proper navigation system.
Screen is too small

Where? The link to Argos from this deal shows £60
I have used different sat nav for years, tomtom's are really good, but their maps are terrible, it takes them way longer than Garmin to update and many tomtom's street names are wrong, postcode takes you to right address but street names dont always tie up, Garmins maps are far superior and very rarely have issues, my only gripe with garmin is the units tell you to turn too early, however you can download a garmin utility which allows you to alter this time from 100 yards down to 5 or 10, then it performs same as tomtom.
