    The wife has just bought me an early Christmas present, a satnav, bless her.

    I have never used one before, but have to say I was very impressed how easy and user friendly it was. The model is a tom tom start 60.

    Anyone out there got any thoughts on satnav in general, and any tips on how to get the best out of them ?

    My best advice is not to blindly follow sat navs.
    They are only accurate to about 10 metres, not a problem in most places, but a nightmare in London.
    Built up areas with tall buildings make it hard to get a signal sometimes.
  3. I think the standalone ones are worth thinking about because the built in Honda one doesn't have speed cameras or speed limit warnings and is a lot more expensive to keep the maps up to date.

    I like my stand alone Tomtom much better over Honda's sat nav. I bought my tom tom 4 years ago and it still works perfectly. Personally, tom tom got better visual map and it shows very clearly all the roads, juctions etc.
