Lifetime free maps until they realise they cant afford to do that long …Lifetime free maps until they realise they cant afford to do that long term and change it like TomTom did


Ahh that's why you read the asterisk fine print.

Not a bad price, these normally retail for £100
Similar price at Halfords, Maplins and Amazon, but they don't seem to include the Western Europe maps.

I've been getting free lifetime maps for western Europe for at least 6 years now. Can't see them stopping it any time soon. Certainly lasted longer than my last 🐹!
I recently bought one of these, used it twice after and a brief stop on the motorway it sent me in the wrong direction going back to where I started.
And on the other journey the lane guidance is so small it splits the screen in two and you no longer have a five inch screen, you have a two inch screen to try and focus on while driving at 70 mph on a motorway and the voice directions kept saying keep left repeatedly, then at 70 mph and 10 metres from the point of passing the junction, said veer right, If I had stayed on the original route it would have added 60+ miles to the journey and we'd lost out financially. So you can imagine what happened next, car full of screaming people who thought I was trying to kill them, and then to rub it in, on the return journey the Garmin darling device again sent me completely the wrong direction, down a road that was getting constructed with a dead end at the end, and after trying patiently to correct it, I thought it was having a hissy fit to get me to "turn around" AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN...

Thankfully, those wonderful assistants at Currys gladly swapped it for a TomTom, So please be careful and do a few trial runs first, to make sure they (Garmin) have fixed the piece of Garbage these Garmin SatNav's are. They are after all giving away the lifetime maps for a reason...
They are giving lifetime maps for free as you can download a free sat nav app. I can't believe after market satnavs still exist. Most new cars have one fitted and I could get a cheap android phone and use it as a stand alone satnav with an app if that is what i required.
Surely 90% of people have a phone capable of running Waze
Good offer but from the reviews I can find says it has a resistive touchscreen, which is real pain when you want to zoom in/out on the map - one of the reasons I want to replace my current Navigon. I've gone for the DriveSmart 50LM from Argos, which is £20 more, but has pinch to zoom and other features such as connect to Smartphone for traffic alerts etc.

I've tried using phone as Sat Nav but the GPS is really poor - according to what I can find online that's due to MediaTek processor.
