Travel avoidance--- thats a new feature
Worth it for that alone.
Heat added

Surely days of separate sat navs are over, with smartphones.

Nokia Here is free and very good working offline as well, so why have another device?

nice find op, heat added

Not really. I have a smartphone with a pretty good sat nav app, but I still use my Garmin. It does a more solid reliable job ultimately, especially for those who use it a lot.

I don't know about anyone else but the battery in my phone doesn't last that long as it is, let alone when its got GPS on, and having it on charge constantly doesn't help the longevity of the battery either. Plus my standalone gives me realtime traffic, better mapping with real junction information, and the voice prompts are more detailed, not to mention never having to think about data costs.

It's really down to personal preference, but for me there is still a place for the stand alone sat nav. Saying that I do a lot of driving so the more casual user will probably find their phone perfectly adequate.

Sort of agree with separate nav units becoming redundant. I've yet to find an experience better than Google Maps nav on a dedicated sat nav device, the real time traffic and everything is great. What's surprising is how many people who don't realise they have navigation built into their smartphones. Give it 5 years it'll become common knowledge though.

Is it good.,,?
I am planning to buy but need more light on it pls,,,

Do you seriously expect anybody to respond to your obvious nonsense?

Ok, I'll bite; nob!

And also it's only in store I would say...?

Does it have proper itinerary planning?

Having used many different makes and models of sat nav I rate garmin better than tom tom

Quality over a big name

Awesome price, lifetime updates for the cost of 1 years subscription to tom Tom ...

Search by postcode?

the Waze app beats any sat nav. live(est) traffic, updates from real users on the road right now which means you don't have to get stuck in traffic as it takes the TTP system to update it after its too late like sat navs.

Ha ha. Do people really still buy these?? Cold. Dead tech. I might post a bargain about lazer discs!

yes

I bought this few months ago when first released. found the deal on here and paid £140. all I can say is its the best budget phone you can get. feels like a much more expensive phone. no faults at all.

purchased the larger 6 inch screen Garmin last week, they have journey planning, my 6 incher doesn't have the traffic avoidance feature which would be nice.

re using 2 devices, I drive all day long for work, and tried Tom Tom mobile, Google maps and Here, Here was by far the best but our phones do much more than ring these days, and it became a hassle using it for navigation and everything else. battery was also drained, and had to be on charge every journey.

much happier with a dedicated navigation unit (which btw, Nokia own the Garmin mapping software), and always have HERE to fall back on.

IS THIS THE SAME ONE?

That doesn't appear to have "travel" or traffic avoidance?

No if you travel abroad

No, it isn't the same one - the Aldi one is the 55LMT WE not 55LM WE, I guess the T is for traffic.

Nokia here works in most countries and does not need internet abroad.

Sat Nav on phones is great but I always get a call whenever I'm about to come across a difficult junction in an area I have never been before.

+1 for Waze

Agree with the comments about full time drivers needing a separate unit to avoid hassles like phone calls interrupting your navigation but for all us casual users the various mobile OS map softwares should suffice for your annual drive to Scotland or Cornwall

Seems to be a good price as well considering it promises lifetime map upgrades, something which when I last looked at satnavs was hideously expensive

Waze seems like a really good idea but I've noticed it has it's shortcomings, mainly:

- Not so good with roundabouts.
- Reliability issues (unrelated to the phone).
- High dependence on the phone's hardware, which in my experience isn't as good as that in a dedicated SatNav.

You'd have to be very lucky to find one of these in store.

If you want/need a sat nav, this a decent spec at a decent price. Garmin is an excellent brand with good product support too and they make marine navigation systems so can't be rubbish.

Great price with free updates. Unfortunately OOS at my local Aldi this morning

Google Maps if you're traveling a fair distance for example is a hopeless experience due to the silly way it manages offline mapping. I never use it for that reason it doesn't work reliably as you rely on having an Internet connection.

Waze is Google owned and if you don't have an Internet connection it's useless. You need offline mapping, mapfactor or navfree for example.

I travel 150 miles across the UK a few times a year, Google Maps and Waze don't work reliably for that trip.

I use Camsam Plus to give me speed camera warnings, which overlay the main navigation app I'm using.
