if you have a smartphone you can download a satnav app into it for around £30. Tomtom do one and Co-Pilot is very good. All maps are stored in your phone so no data charges, and it updates itself when it needs to rather than you having to connect separately to your PC. Just need to make sure you have an in car charger for the phone.

If you go down the phone route save your data and the possibility of not having a connection on a phone try Navfree. You download the maps to your phone. Available for both Android and Iphones.

In my experience phone satnavs (the free ones like Google, Navfree) are less reliable and more likely to send you wrong than built in car satnavs. I've not found anything that is 100% foolproof though

Google maps is pretty good as long as you have a good signal. I've been finding my way round 30 odd pubs in Brighton using it with no problem. Obviousely a proper sat nav is better but i still have 2010 maps on my garmin and they keep changing the one way systems seemingly on a dayly basis!

I'm currently using my phone however I don't have unlimited data and it kills the battery (which seems to be on the blink anyway but thats another matter).

I'll have a look at the TomTom app and NavFree on my nights next week.  Cheers for the replies all Smile
