Most lorry drivers go for TomTom. Not the cheapest but certainly easy to use.

It is easily updatable and with a cheap upgrade it will be able to show u where traffic jams are and route u round it.

Also has great options for POI's (Points of interest). If u need to find the nearest supermarket for example u can download and install with ease.

somewhere cold
Go for the navigo posted in the bargain room and stick on the tomtom maps and crack files. Works exactly as tomtom and does a bit more also works out about half the cost.

Cheers for the replys, the navigo seems like a real bargain! However I have just stumbled upon my next problem - there is no cigarette lighter in the car.

I have had a look to see if I could see the wires behind the hole but no joy. I guess they will be there but folded back on itself and cable tied up somewhere behind the dash - no way im taking that out.

Only wires I can easily get access to is the ISO adapter for power to the stereo - that must have a 12v switched live - just not sure how safe it will be to splice into that.

If anyone has any other ideas let me know..
