add the £20 John Lewis voucher posted elsewhere on this forum to bring the cost down to £99 :santa:

Mind you, the V3 is ****. I've heard there is no memory card slot?

edit LOOOL ignore me, you're already including the £20 voucher in the cost.

Thank you so much for this hot deal. Also, SO helpful that you included the discount code in the post. I have just placed an order for my TT.

Yeah, the V3 doesn't include a memory slot. It has got 512Mb built in memory, which should be more than enough for any add-ons.

Voted hot as best price I have seen!

Ive been meaning to get a sat nav for a while i was wondering if anyone knew what was happening with regards to europes version of GPS i.e galileo will these tom toms be redundant or will they continue to work?

Also is it worth waiting for galileo or is GPS just as good?
thanks

Also is it worth waiting for galileo or is GPS just as good?thanks



Galileo isn't due to be up and running until 2013! That's a long wait!

If they don't scrap the whole system - GPS is the American Military system which they've allowed to be used in consumer units - the speculation is that the Americans can therefore turn it off/deny access in the future should they wish to do so. EU wants it's own system of Sat Nav, but as this will cost £10 billion+ it probably isn't going to happen.

Once again - the V3 is a flawed TomTom, no itinery planning for a start.

Good price, poor unit.

Mmmmm!!

Cheers, just ordered one for my pops' stocking. I'm sure most of the target audience for this version won't give a hoot about the 'flaws'. Great entry level sat nav at a great price I say

I would like to get a SavNav for the good lady for Christmas. What is a … I would like to get a SavNav for the good lady for Christmas. What is a good model to get?It needs to be accurate and not spend 10 minutes looking for a satellite but I don't need any other bells and whistles like voice control or mp3 capability. I am not especially price sensitive.Also needs to be small enough that she doesn't leave it in the car to get nicked.thanks


i have owned various navman's which are **** just aout do the job, it is all about tomtom i have the europe version of this and on the whole its great, although it has frozen a couple of times but no biggee, get a tomtom trust me

I am really worried that I have just bought a real dud !!

All I need is a basic unit for when I sometimes leave Eastbourne, maybe London etc. Doesn't need to have bells and whistles on it. Surely TT is a good brand to have.

You can't go far wrong with the TT. I've got the older one but just bought this one for the missus!

It will get you from A to B no bother.

Does this have the speed cameras?

Thanks

Good price.I prefer V2 though.

Standard delivery is currently FREE on orders too!!

For £119.99 you'll be getting a excellent starter level sat-nav and the leading name is sat-navs. A brilliant deal as it also includes the £10 TOMTOM voucher and has a 1 year warranty.

Nice accessory pack to go with it at play.com for £17.99: play.com/Ele…tml

voted hot dont forget your 6 percent through quidco :santa:

Im buying one of these as a xmas present, is this the best price currently available for the GB One v3?

Banned

best price i've seen about for it anyways. If your buying one of these, fimiliarise yourself with the reset button on it, as 90% of problems that occur with tomtoms can be fixed with using the reset. The reset button on the tomtom one is on the bottom of the unit and its a small circular hole you need to press with a pin (its about the only thing that can get into the button)

This seems to be the same one and has got speed camera warnings.

we just do. :thumbsup:

just dont rely on sat nav's though - use common sense...i always review a map before so i know roughly where im going......i have a tom tom one with the latest maps and tbh its ****...so **** ive nearly thrown it out the window....why i hear you say....

well ok - from Reading to Milton Keynes.....quickest route and shortest route is via A4, A404M, High Wycombe, Aylesbury, MK checked by me using a map (remember one of those) - approx 56 miles - this usually takes between 1.5 and 2.5 hours

TomTom (dumbdumb) wanted to take me via m4 and m25, MK through 2 of the busiest roads in the uk - approx 70 miles - an ADDITIONAL 15 MILES and will take at least 4 hours perhaps a week...at one stage i was 8 miles from MK and because it didnt recognise a not so new bypass it directed to go to London (!!) more than 20 miles away..eh?

Another - Reading -Portsmouth via SOUTHAMPTON - durrr an approx 20 mile detour thanks that is also slower!!!

it seems tt's are programmed to take you onto major roads/motorways which is fine in a ruddy village like holland but for the south east/midlands - we want to AVOID major roads/motorways

oh and the traffic is ****...does it work....NO!, if alerting you 5 miles after getting through the traffic problem is ok for you then go ahead

speed camera warnings are **** too...works well - apparently a traffic light is a speed camera too

watch out updating maps etc via tt's home pc application....tt sometimes updates the software on your device - the last update screwed up my tt....luckily id backed it up - and restored it

dont get me wrong - they are handy if you really dont have a clue where you are going.....just you will almost certainly end up driving further and taking longer and it beats trying to drive and look at a map at the same time

royals, if your looking for something that does traffic and has decent speed warnings, then look into a Garmin. Garmin are a much better sat-nav than what tomtom is, dont get me wrong, l own a tomtom but l own it becuase l got it cheap, if l were paying anything from £150 up l would go for a Garmin

With regards to length of the journey you can change the option of preference as with most satnavs. i.e shortest journey/quickest route etc You can also tick the feature of avoiding motorways or certain routes.

The 'speed camera traffic lights' you mention may just be that they have traffic light cameras on them which catch you if you jump the lights..

I can only give this info based on a tomtom mobile unit I had a few years back

I am looking for one or my husband for xmas

If i bought this one would I need anything else ie to clip it to the window/to charge it etc I have no idea about these things

Anyone know of any vouchers codes for an "A 2 Z"......lol

oh no - i just clicked on the expired button by mistake!! annoying thing about john lewis is it doesn't let you be greedy and put more than one promotional code in at a time. Still, £109 is pretty good, and free delivery at the moment.
