I have no experience with this Navman, but do have TomTom Navigator 3 attached to my PDA. Excellent!!!.

Some while ago, there was a similar question about GPS and replies praised the "TomTom GO" very highly. This is an all-in-one unit like the Navman.

A new model of this, "TomTom Go300", will be available very shortly.

Price about £370

the Tom Tom, unfortunately has a bad record in Scotland.

A taxi driver who bought one, found eight mistakes on his first day of usage. ( street names which did not exist, and a couple, ( including his home address ) were different names entirely.

There was a piece in the Sunday Mails "the Judge" ( press version of watchdog ), where the company stated that, they new that not all addresses in the Glasgow/Paisley area were correct and still needing to be updated, and they would do so as soon as possible.

Surely this should have been done, "before" the item was put up for sale.

a new staples had opened quite near to me.

Noticed that I could get 20% off if I signed up for a business store card....which I duly did and purchased the ICN510 for £315...a snip.

A quality piece of kit as far as I can tell...only had it for 'bout 5 hours.....
