Ordered forgot TCB, but almost half of my purchase not tracked even after complain.
hot!
My TomTom was not affected.

Hot deal whether this one is affected or not as it will be sorted by their fix.
Great price but the whole map juggling issue for european travel make this a bad choice for the adventurous.

Is the screen 4.3" or 5"? Both listed on the ad?
I would have thought Satnavs will become extinct within the next few years seeing as most mobile phones will be smartphones and will have satnav on them free.

Looks like a typo - should be 5"

I was thinking that however on a recent holiday in Wales I left my TomTom 720 at home thinking my new Google Nexus S would handle it. I wish I'd brought TomTom after all. Google Maps/Navigator is very lacking in features. It is very much a no frills application. POIs for example were very limited. I guess this will change as they add new features but for now a dedicated SatNav may still be the answer.

Potentially, although from experience all but Google Navigation have been quite buggy in comparison to proper units.

phones are not much use when you are in the middle of nowhere without a phone signal

It's happened to me, a satnav is THE answer
Is this cheaper then buying a new map for my tomtom?
Great offer, thanks for posting. Anyone who buys, get free map updates up to 12 months from purchase when you register your Tom Tom.

most phones use GPS like any other satnavs, get free updates too (well u do with google anyway).

Great deal though, the bug has been fixed but some users are still finding issues with it.. tomtom have basically just ignored that fact.
I was going to go with this to replace my 720 however it has the same problem in that it doesn't have enough memory to install the update. You have to choose smaller bundles relating to where you are going but you can't always get the ones you need. The 720 at least has an SD slot to work around the problem, whereas this doesn't.

That's why you can get Sat-Nav apps (TomTom included) that load the map etc onto the phone memory, so you don't need a signal.

P.S. You can't always guarantee a GPS signal either
Just ordered one. My old Navman is a bit flakey and the maps are well out of date so often wrong. For £79 for a 5" nav with eurpoean mapping I don't think you can go to far wrong. - and went through quidco for the 3% cashback.

Notice that the voucher code states that its not valid on technology purchases.....still works though
Buy one of the Nokia's smartphones if ur looking for Satnav on ur smartphones, the nokia drive works offline once downloaded... plus the Nokia Lumia 710 for 139.99 is 'just' double the price for this sat nav.
Love this site, decided two days ago to get a new sat nav and started watching on here and then this comes up

As for the phone sat nav debate.. i have a GS2 and am happy to use the sat nav on there but it can be a pain sometime.. my girlfriends has the GS1 and hates the sat nav on there.. always cuts out and stuff so for now dedicated sat nav is the way to go

Nokia Drive on WP7 for free, definitely rivals a TomTom and it has offline maps.
I have had several TomTom's now and this one is a recent upgrade for me.

I buy new every year to save me buying maps and I like having the best current TomTom
The screen on this unit is very responsive unlike the XL IQ, You dont have IQ routes on this but after a year IQ sub runs out and you need to pay £50 to renew and it keeps reminding you of that(very annoying)
The software on the newer TomToms is not as quick at this one and for the money you will over the moon!
Regarding having it on your phone its great until you have a phone call or a text that comes through at the wrong time.

No it's not, there's plenty of offline sat navs. Sygic is excellent, possibly better than using a TomTom. People who have Nokia phone running WP7 can use Nokia Drive which has offline mapping and easily rivals a dedicated sat nav. I use Sygic on my SGS2, I haven't needed to use my TomTom again. All I need is a GPS signal as the maps are offline.

Try Sygic I think it's one of the best.
How much longer do you think Google will be free... maybe just long enough to wipe out the opposition, think about it, they ain't daft!!

I personally wouldn't use Google Navigation in its present format, it's online only. A reliable sat nav solution must have up to date offline maps. Which is why I mentioned Nokia Drive and Sygic. There are solutions based on open street maps too for various platforms e.g. Skobbler.

I use the smart phone as well but for £80 its worth having a decent sat navigation to use. Seems more reliable to me without worrying of the phone heating up and it's less fiddly. I suppose personal choice and having a back up, sat navigation wins over phone for me.

Cracking deal!

Thanks a lot - just what needed for weekend local trips and summer trip through Europe!
Ive only ever had TomTom - superb! This is my 3rd. I'll be selling my current one. Nothing wrong with it, only 12 months old but nothing like having a bigger screen!
thanks!! bought one for my parents who specifically wanted a big screen sat nav
So does this come with new maps? Or do you have to live with whatever is on it, and shell out big money for an update?

BTW, have TomTom maps gotten more up to date? I doubt one update a few years ago, and the maps were so out of date (years of construction missing), that I am not sure why I should give them money.
"cold its not an iphone"

hohoho just wanted to have a chuckle,
great deal , have rarely seen them at this price, once on argos ebay clearance, but this is great.
I bought this and thought that I used the coupon correctly, however on my confirmation page it states that I paid £89 and not £79.

Did that happen with anyone else or did I balls it up?
Only a lunatic or someone who has never used an iPhone would say its better than this.

Can't imagine anything worse than being reliant on any smartphone in another country to get me to my destination
Same with me but then I noticed on the same page in the payment summary box on RHS it was showing voucher used and deducted £10
ordered, thank you.:)
Reviews aren't really sparkling. Especially in terms of updating to newer maps.
Ordered using quidco and code. Voted Hot

Usually you get a full map update allowed within the first month or so, and then you just get minor updates, operating system updates... if you want new maps again which are released at frequent intervals, you subscribe.
