I’ve finally given up on my ancient Tom Tom Go 710, the maps are about 6 years out of date and the cost of upgrading the maps is quite frankly, OTT. Shame as the battery life of this unit is fantastic, easily 5 hours.
I’ve had very few problems with the Tom Tom, however, I’ve read some reviews on the latest TT mapping and there seem to be one or two unhappy bunnies out there. Not really what you want if you’re looking for the start of a remote summit.
I’ve no experience of Garmin mapping, however, a friend swears it’s much better.
I’m well aware, Sat Navs have moved on leaps and bounds since I purchased my 710 so I’m wondering what other of the bells and whistles you find useful.
Basically I’m looking for something that will get me to within a reasonable distance from the start of a summit, around the Â£150-200 range and it must have Bluetooth and full European mapping. The unit that ticks virtually all the boxes is
especially as it comes with free lifetime map upgrade, but rather infuriatingly, not full European mapping
Any thoughts please?
