Think I'm in the wrong thread .... however ... sure was wishing I had SatNav yesterday as I continually got lost round Edinburgh.  Is there any one system better than any other ... anyone know anything about TomTom?

One of my colleagues at work uses TomTom - in New Zealand of course! 



Security researchers have discovered that Apple's iPhone keeps track of where you go – and saves every detail of it to a secret file on the device which is then copied to the owner's computer when the two are synchronised.

Yeah, TomTom is great. My friend has one - awesome for getting around London and avoiding the congestion zone and speed cameras! My dad also has one but he's never used it, technology incompetence. Rolling Eyes

However, it should be noted that Google Navigation available on all Android phones, is also great at getting you around London whilst avoiding congestion zone and speed cameras (with Radardroid add-on).

Yes, Mark but most people in London are poncy c**ts and have an iPhone. :P

Do you actively use Radardroid?  I think it would just be easier to buy a TomTom in a car situation for some reason, to keep your phone free. Think

Yes I use Radardroid, if I'm going to use my phone for navigation, why not? It's just an app that runs in the background to pop-up a speed warning into your Google Navigation.

Yeah but what I mean is that, the main function of a navigator is to get you places so if you're trying to get from place A to unknown place B and the navigator is calling out directions and say, someone phones you, what happens? Seems like separate devices is logical.

I know what you mean but I suppose the fact it's free is what makes it a sensible choice over TomTom for many.

If someone calls you, just don't answer or setup bluetooth in your car like I have. Not really a major issue.

Works brilliantly, as good as TomTom.
