as an ex trucker I'd say that the majority of European professional drivers use Garmin Nuvi's. They seem to still be very popular from the forums I keep in touch with so that'd be my recommendation!
I have a TomTom, it's a bit quiet at times but is brill, does auto routing and a RDS lead updater ..Hi All,
Ive looked back through the archives and there have been a few "whats the best satnav?" topics. Has anyone any recent satnav experience with detail levels in France, Italy and mainland Greece?
(Yes this could have been asked elsewhere in the wider forums but I tend to view satnavs as needing to be specifically MGF friendly - ie you can actually hear them at autobahn speed witht he roof down, and can see the display in sunlight.)
Basically the map data on my Navman N20i is a tad old now (2006) and is due for upgrade. The updated EU maps for the N20 are only november 2008 so a couple of years old already, dont cover greece and are £100 (I only paid £150 for it new!)
I like the N20i and with the T1 traficmaster add-on unit it is really good at avoiding jams as it auto recalcs the route arond the problem - but £100 for EU maps already two years old and not covering one of my target 2011 destinations Im left wondering if its time to look for a replacement MGF friendly system
