Found 17th May 2016
Been looking for a dashcam for some time, totally confused with all the options available, then I picked up a speeding ticket last week, so decided to buy a SatNav instead of using my phone. Windows are dropping 'Here Drive' for Windows 10 phones, so an opportunity presented itself. Decided on this model and spent ages searching for the best deal, hope I found it and it is of use to others, around £30 cheaper than elsewhere.

The rest is copied and pasted:

The Garmin DriveAssist 50 LMT-D 5” Sat Nav with UK & Ireland Maps and Built-in Dash Cam also includes driver awareness features to encourage safer driving. Garmin DriveAssist records your drive, automatically saving collision footage on impact and even alerts you when you have stopped and the traffic in front of you starts moving! This advanced Sat Nav will alert you if you drive too closely to the car ahead and also if you drift off the road or into oncoming traffic. Other features include Smartphone notifications, Bluetooth® hands-free calling, FREE lifetime map updates for the UK and Ireland and Garmin Digital Traffic. All of these combined, make this the perfect companion for any journey!

Where from?
I have the previous model of this device, as I needed a new sat nav last year, and it was an upgrade to my old 720p dashcam, so figured I'd reduce my windscreen clutter and cable mess. I'm very happy with it. Think I paid £230 but like I said, it was the previous gen model, so this isn't a bad deal :-)

By not speeding.
Garmin are extremely difficult to operate. Took me about 10 minutes of messing about just to get it to enter a post code and start navigating. Highly complex and unintuitive. Stick to Tomtom.

Still trying to figure out how I managed it, it was my local fixed speed camera.

Rubbish. I had a Tomtom for years and had to wait for what seemed like whole minutes between entering each letter, it had such an enormous lag. And literally minutes for it to locate a satellite. Just bought a Garmin 58 (granted, newer technology), it works almost exactly like the Tomtom, just miles faster in all regards, and has a far more precise indication of where one is located.

Well I was referring to latest versions of TomTom and Garmin, not old tech. Our new VW came with the latest Garmin and it's useless.
