Just booked my holiday in France and thought a SatNav migt be handy. Anybody suggest a cheap (secondhand is OK too) one that'll cover Europe.

Probably going to Texas next year - is it easy to upgrade to US mapping on these things? I've never used on as map reading skills are pretty good and GF is better (she's a geologist!)

How cheap is cheap?

For Europe, I reckon go for the Garmin 250W - around £130 or so, with full European mapping.

Getting the US City Navigator maps shouldn't be too expensive, or even free if you know what you are doing.

I was looking at the Garmin 250W, in the end I went for the Garmin 350T for £189 from Halfords which also gives you traffic updates and text to speech for street names.
