Agree'd or as mentioned earlier, there is also the google navigation, which you can use the robot voice and it tells you the direction to turn and the road you are turning onto. I hope NavFree do this soon!

Thanks for all the advice guys :) I decided to go with the Tomtom 1005. It's perfect for what I need. Looks stylish too :)

buy a good solid case for it! you can get them cheap enough, I bought a case from 99p store several years ago for my tomtom, it has bounced a few times and was perfectly unharmed! not bad for a cheap buy!

NavFree does it with main roads (the A4146 in Milton Keynes amuses me, the lady just can't say it right!) but not street names - that would be really nifty!

The one feature I adore about NavFree is that you can stream the audio directions via bluetooth, while using Spotify and the music volume dips, rather than relying on the tinny phone speaker.

I have my iphone in a screen mounted cradle on the drivers side, plugged in to an aux lead to the stereo.
Play the music off the phone whilst the nav free is on, it fades out the music every time the sat nav gives an instruction, also fades both out if you get a phone call. - iphone mic is very sensitive but the speaker is not great, so running through the car stereo works like a hands free kit as well.
Can't complain about the nav free software has got me everywhere I have wanted to go.

We got it from Currys.

This one http://www.currys.co...CFYQhtAodlxIA5A

I know it's expensive for a sat nav but we use it a lot I decided worth treating myself :)
Haven't had a chance to use it yet, gfs had the car all week but I get my chance this weekend so I'm eager to try out the lane/street voice :)

Paid a bit much for it then cause currently in the halfords sale you could of had the europe version for £248.97 or the world version for £262.50 if you was planning on going on holiday at some point. Even if you wasn't gonna use it in another country you'd have got more for less money.

Agreed, good as gold.


Might have to give it a go on my android

Is a bit much yeah but I can spare it. Not really bothered about world maps, dont dirve on holiday, only generally use it for UK roads!

I know I could have got it cheaper elsewhere but I'm impatient and I buy the first thing that comes up :P

All in all we are happy with it. Does the job and looks sweet :)

I use Copilot on my iPhone but in my opinion nothing beats the Tomtom.
