I can't say I ever wish for a bigger screen. I concentrate on the spoken instructions I think - eyes on the road!

It partly depends on where you put it - it seems that most people put their satnav in the middle of the car. I prefer to have mine in the bottom right hand corner of the screen, which makes it slightly closer and means it isn't a distraction when driving normally. At the same time, this means you have to look away from the road to see it, so it's all swings and roundabouts!

Have something to contribute?

Has the battery life improved on the Tom Toms. Bought a Garmin a few years ago which was excellent but the main benefit was the battery would last around 4 hrs, so no need to have it plugged in.

Can't say I've ever tried it on battery, I always run the satnav on the charger.

The battery is cr@p, I always have mine on the charger, otherwise it runs out half way through the journey!
