    Car Sat Nav

    I am looking for a car sat nav for basic use for budget around £100. I mainly use in London and don't really travel outside UK but free EU maps and live traffic update will be useful. I was looking Garmin and can anyone suggest what model to go for?

    Whats wrong with google maps on

    Got an old phone. Use that. Less mess messing about and you don't need data or even a sim card in phone. just use one of the fully installed satnav apps. I don't think there is anything better than Google maps though which you will need a sim for. Traffic alerts are brilliant. If you must have a Garmin then source the cheapest one as that will do the job you want

    the 5" garmin has excellent reviews and circa £79.

    I've had a couple of brands over the years and find TomTom the best/easiest, several models below your budget of £100, Your text here

    Be wary of using a phone, as obviously you can't navigate the menus whilst in control of your vehicle.
