Satelitte Navigation Systems

I've just seen a Medion MDPPC250 PocketPC GPS Bundle for £300 at Halfords, down from £400.

Has anyone experience of Sat. Nav.?

Have you any advice on the above kit or is there something better for the money?

I basically need something which will talk me through the route and redirect should I go wrong.

Is there an annual fee of some kind for use of the satellite?

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

ßéLâ the Tomtom and similar look very good but I'd have to get a pocket PC and have a limited budget.

Wilham, it doesn't look like Aldi have any at the moment. (My luck eh?).

I've also seen similar to the Medion MDPPC250 on the Novatech site at £300.

Basically I want A to B with re-routing if I deviate and voice instructions. I'm not worried about places of interest and the like but if Europe, especially France, is included, it would be a bonus.

Thanks for the link ßéLâ, now to go through all those mentioned so far and make a decision.

Thanks everyone for your help. I'll tick as resolved.

I use an Ipaq with TomTom3; excellent. If you deviate from the set route it immediately recalculates a new one. It will speak to you so you don't need to take your eyes off the road.

As regards France, these maps cost extra. I did a 2500 mile tour of France this summer and never used a paper map.
