I didn’t know CEX sold sat navs
Doesn't everyone just use their phones now?

What about the many places we still have where there's no 3g, 4g reception. Many parts of Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, Devon, East anglia to name but a few, mobile phone as a satnav is great if your never going far away from towns or cities

If I was to use a phone as a satnav, I would buy a cheap seperate 2nd hand phone.
But this particular satnav model is cheaper than all the phones I would use, and has a clearer layout.
I prefer being able to attach it to my windscreen than use a phone mount

Thats not a reason to buy a sat nav - you can easily download the areas of your route before you leave, you could when do it on WiFi.

There are super handy free sims with 200mb data a month from 3 that mean you can get traffic updates on the move too.

Each to their own, when I was a delivery driver I much prefered to use a sat nav to my phone for directions. Nowadays if I'm just going somewhere round town or to the nearest big city I'll use my phone for directions but when going to the more densely built up parts of the UK I personally much prefer my sat nav
To use a newish phone running, for the sake of argument, google maps, you need a power adapter that's going to cost at least half of the £40. Once in a while is ok but for heavy use using your phone hour upon hour with the screen on and constant power through on an over heated dashboard will see off your phone battery in no time, replacing that will cost more than the other half of the £40. Not to mention the screen itself, if that goes you're out hundreds for a new phone. My S7 won't even do it in the summer time because it overheats and crashes out. I don't think there's an Android app that can do everything this will, full Europe maps all self contained, speed monitoring and alerts, traffic cameras, live traffic conditions, proper lane guidance, a whole bunch of other background stuff and a screen half as big again as any phone you're likely to carry in your pocket. Different apps do different bits but for the whole package 42 quid is a steal.

I'm not sure what you mean about a power adapter. You can get really good car chargers from a reputable brand for around £5 - there are often great prices on RAV Power ones.

For arguments sake, Tom Tom do an Android app if you really miss the full range of designated sat nav features. But personally I'd be happy with Google maps (but that's just me).

As for phones, try a used Samsung Note 3 - big screen and removable batteries which you can pick up for a could of quid. You can also use the phone for your music streaming if you so choose, that saves you draining your main phone's battery.

I'd actually thought about trying to use an 8 inch tablet but they're aren't many that have 3g that aren't super expensive.

I'm not spoiling for an argument. I'm not saying this is a bad deal, not saying phones are better than dedicated sat navs, just playing devil's advocate and maybe help someone along the way.
also worth keeping in mind (in case you weren't aware) "lifetime maps" just means until the end of the product life, which could be anytime at all.

You mean when Garmin stops supporting the product, or when the item just stops working?
Just out of interest, has anyone used this model? I am actually interested in one of these for my Mother purely for the simplicity. And yes, I know I've championed the use of a phone, but that was just for overall balance
Jist a headsup on these.... i had one on the glovebox for monthscame to use it with a generis car charger and it wouldn't run charge.. swapped the battery and it was the same.... it was the generic charger that had no oomph... charged it with my anker desk charger and it worked fine

Whenever Garmin decide to stop supporting it. A cynic might argue that stopping supporting these models forces people to buy new sat navs (or pushes them further towards Google maps)

Given the grief TomTom got recently for inventing that definition of "lifetime", I can't see Garmin rushing to EOL swathes of lifetime map products themselves.

Ex display model is twice this price at Halfords

halfords.com/tec…lay?
Great price op
Have to say I much prefer to have a proper dedicated sat nav as I need to use one most days with my job and when my previous one failed I hated using my phone to get around much easier to use a dedicated device also not shortening the life of your phone battery which costs more than this deal!

eligible for life time maps as the 2nd owner?

Yes me, this exact one. In terms of complexity of use I don't think it's much different from a phone app. You turn it on, type something into the search bar, find what you want, and press go. The only thing a dedicated sat nav does quicker is avoid the need to navigate round a phone to find the app in the first place. For useful stuff like saving favourites or looking up journey history you still have to navigate round a touchscreen icon based interface. Plus you still need to be connected to a phone to receive live traffic and whathaveyou so that has to be managed.

All the comments about lifetime maps are exaggerating the problem slightly. Yes at the end of the product life cycle they stop updating the maps but that doesn't stop them from working and the amount of changes made to maps isn't so much that it becomes unusable for years afterwards.

I had a TomTom Go for more than ten years and it's only in the last 12 months that they stopped offering software updates. Didn't come with free map updates but I still kept using it without issues.
Oh and here's another advantage to using one of these - if you have a Garmin watch [most models anyway] the sat nav will connect to it so that when you stop and get out it will load up your watch with directions to walk to your final destination, locate your car and so on. Novelty value for most I imagine but what the hey.
I always use my satnav which is this one but with a D at the end.

I get in the car and its ready to go, no messing with wires, mounting etc.
No need to download anything and it works wherever I can see the sky (which is everywhere). Has a powerfull speaker, easy to navigate. It does connect to my phone using the app to get better live traffic. I also put my phone in the gully if someone phones my partner can answer and I still have the satnav to look at.
I dont use my phone much so a lot of the time it is at 10% charge and data is flakey on it at times and I dont have a lot of data either.
A lot of the younger people use their phones in the family but I just prefer the satnav its just so much simpler then fussing with a phone.
Does Cex provide a warranty for grade b electronics?

Really, when in parts of Wales and Scotland I've found other ways. Always had to use a satnav when a phone has no signal, unless of course you've got a sat phone

Sat phone... Most phones have GPS.. No need at all for Internet unless you want traffic updates etc.
Do phones show you lane change on motorays etc ie I get the 4 lanes with a arrow to indicate what lane to be in?
I take it they also speak to you telling you what to do.
Seriously, do you guys not get bored arguing about the validity of sat-navs? I use to criticise the stream of people that came on every deal to inform of the groundbreaking news that phones can do sat nav now, but beginning to think both sides are as bad as each other. Just use whatever you prefer and move on with your life!
90% of the times I use a delicated sat nav and Garmin at that, 10% using phone Google sat nav. Been using Garmin for the best part of 10+ years, at this price point for this model is cheap.
