or for far less buy an android handset (such as the Orange San Francisco) which does so much more at a fraction of the price

Be aware that the new 1000 range does not support 3rd Party POIs so you can't load up the Pocket GPS speed camera database or POI databases that you can download from companies such as Tesco etc. A backward step if you ask me. The x40 range was the best with FM/Bluetooth transmitting etc. The x50 range is good too but I think you lose the FM transmitter. AFAIK this model doesn't have any transmitter function for playing MP3s or navigation directions through the car radio.

I don't understand this place - this is being voted cold because, I imagine, people think it is alot to pay for a Sat Nav or that it is not a good model (the reviews should prove it is).

The heat rating should be on the price - this is 8% off a brand new piece of kit and is the best price around.

Have I missed something? Will be thinking twice before posting a deal again.

Fair point and I voted hot because of it.
