Re: sat nav forum

Ohh and the police get annoyed if your driving with a map as well! Especially if its on your knee at a set of traffic lights and you've taken a wrong turn somewhere! I'd moved it by the time the lights change to green!

Re: sat nav forum

Anyhow we are off topic!

Back on topic how about a poll for a Sat Nav section? Either as part of the leasure lonunge or prefferably as its more car related in with the Miscellaneous section along with ICE, cleaning etc. Am sure you could get some decent advertisers for there as well, or targeted google ads to generate some revenue etc. If i was popular i'm sure we could get some group buys etc going, or discounts with sites etc. As we have the members approaching 25K now is it?

Re: sat nav forum

judging by the response since i started this thread i think this section would justify its own spot on the forum. As for advertising it would have to be looked at closely i would think as no manufacturer is gonna want to advertise where we are telling the truth about they,re products good or bad. As for discounts i don,t see why we could not approach some manufacturers i know that when ben from the www.pipelinecard.org.uk site approached garmin they were happy to offer discounts to members of that site .on the subject of discounts any way see my previous posts as the big stores sometimes offer promo discount codes for use on they,re websites where i have obtained these i have posted them here and will continue to do so as long as it benefits other forum members anyway thanks to all who supported this thread hopefully we might now get our own sat nav section

Re: sat nav forum

Has anyone looked at the RAC 110 Sat Nav? Uses Route 66 software. Looks ok. Anyone got an opinion? Only downside is it exclusive to Woolworth. RAC members can get 20 of the retail price of 199.00.

Andy.

no need for a vote it's been cleared with Ben, we are just awaiting download software


we've already got goodle ad's that change depending on what is on the page.

i wouldn't imagen group buys or discounts are going to happen, this would require direct contact with the manurfacture... and tbh... even if we got 20 people to buy a new sat nav... thats nothing for them, i mean our store sells around 9 a day...

Re: sat nav forum

ok so how about sub sections...

i'm thinking

TOMTOM
News
Problems
Downloads

Garmin
News
Problems
Downloads

Navman
News
Problems
Downloads

Other (Mobile/Pda/Handheld)
News
Problems
Downloads


Hardware
New Products
Latest Technology/News

Software
New Software
POI's
Speed Cameras
Other




I think this covers about everything we need, and it would mean the download software would only have to be implimented in 4 or 5 sections.

feel free to add/take away/change this.

Problems section would include common problems / solutions...
downloads we have mentioned above.
news would cover New product/update announcements/ recalls and all other related news.




Legality wise... are we allowed to link to torrents?



Owen

just researched this:

http://www.woolworths.co.uk/ww_p2/pr...l?pid=50712275

woolworths... selling it with 25 off... so no need to be a member... but to be honest, i'd go out and buy a tomtom One Gb... and spend 20 more.. as mentioned, i dont rate the software particually

Thankyou for the advice. Will be looking at the Tom Tom. I feel they are about to come down in price, so will hold off for a few weeks.
