SAT NAV System

Anyone of the forum got SAT NAV or more in particular the handheld PC versions of it.

Im after a cheap system within the region of 250-300, any recommendations or anything to look out for when buying one, will be appreciated.

Cheers

Gaz

Re: Pukka!

Hey Gaz,

Im running Tom Tom 3 through my Pocket PC - it got me to the Clubcento AGM a treat last year. I couldnt rate it enough until it crashed on the way home

Only problem ive had is finding somewhere secure, yet discrete to hide my receiver. Its been in my engine bay, in my roof lining, everywhere i can think of thats out of sight but it just doesnt pick up the signal, so it just gets plonked on the dash when i need it and sits in the door pocket when i dont!!

I got the receiver off ebay for 80 - its kinda translucent blue.

Re: SAT NAV System

Sorry, also slightly off topic, do you people get lost a lot. It's not that I'd object to SatNav if I bought a car that already had it, I just can't see the point.
