Looking for a easy to use satellite system, that can work by simple procedures, making travel from A to B more enjoyable.

Argos seem to offer some decent models, and I have also been informed that the Navman CN-320 at £164.48 from Ebuyer would take some beating. Simplicity of use and cheapness is the main criteria.Any suggestions or advice would be very welcome.

I've been lookingnat thewse reently.

Although the CN-320 is cheaper the Garmin i3 is apparently better. I'm hoping to get one of those. £170 in Comet at the moment.

PaulB2005-Thanks for that.I was looking at the large amount of i3 [StreetPilot] on eBay. Very low price, but sellers in China, and requires Western Union transfer !!.

Don't touch!

The NavMan 510 does look good but the 320 is a budget version and most reviews do mention this. I believe the 320 doesn't accept any pOI (Points Of Interest) either whereas the i3 does so you can add markers for anything from Asda to motorway services and speed cameras.

i3 can also be powered by 2 x AA Batteries.

NavMan 320 has internal battery and DOES support POI.

Regarding the seller in China, was a tongue in cheek comment.But out of curiosity, I noticed one of the sellers was registered in Germany in 2002, and the location of goods where Beijing China. Sent an email via Contact Member, asking for further information as to why different locations. eBay sent me an email, as they were intercepting this sellers correspondence, informing me that the original sellers details had been used incorrectly [highjacked !].
