Sat Nav

I'm seriously considering getting Sat Nav. Now that the cast is off my broken foot I can drive and it won't be long before I'll be able to take work on client sites again. But I'm fed up of spending ages trying to plan a route to client sites in towns I don't know and then getting lost anyway.

If I'm going to go for Sat Nav, I'd like one that is intelligent enough to circumnavigate traffic problems and find the best (rather than the most direct) route. Ideally, I'd also like one that will warn me about traffic cameras too, but that's not vital.

I've heard some horror stories about Sat Nav though. Can anyone recommend a good one for around £200 max?

Which ever one you choose, make sure it's a voice you can tolerate. If John Hannah's voice was coming at me, I would have got one years ago.

I can't stand them, myself, but I know some people swear by them.

Hello Figaro,

Pleased to read your cast is off and you feel a lot better.

Treat yourself, get the Sat Nav.

The ironic thing about life is that no one gets out alive...Huh

Enjoy


I can reccomend a good atlas for £3.99 if you just send me the £200

Wouldn`t be without mine now. Around towns and city centres that you don`t know it`s fantastic and saved a lot of arguments in France last year.

Has also come in handy a few times when we have been on foot and got lost in towns we didn`t know and needed to find a certain store

Brilliant invention, we wouldn't be without ours now....

Although Emma still argues with that :glare:

As said, invaluable when abroad....

Cheers Maureen.

I must say, it feels great to have two working legs again, rather than 1 working leg and two metal sticks. I still use one crutch occassionally when my foot gets tired (it's a godsend on the tube - I've never not been offered a seat, which quite restores my faith in humanity), but it shouldn't be too long before I can lose it altogether.

Can you get a choice of voices then? :laugh: If so, I wonder if there's an Alan Rickman, Sean Connery or James Nesbitt version.
