posted on Mar 11 2014 by Jade Hensby
It seems the days of using the paper maps are long gone. They’ve been replaced with the Sat Nav, which in the most recent years has gone from strength to strength. But with so many options out there, which one is best for 2014? Whether you are travelling aboard or driving in the UK, there is a Sat Nav for everyone.
TomTom GO 6000
At the top of the range is the TomTom GO 6000. This is a premium sat nav that has a new look. With a six inch windscreen, along with built-in wireless data that you don’t need to partner with a smartphone. It comes with 45 European maps, with lifetime updates and lifetime TomTom traffic information. It is perfect for regular commuters and frequent drivers.
Garmin nuvi 2598 LMT-D
This mid-range sat-nav is a very capable mid-range device. Traffic updates are a cut above the average, and offer lifetime European map updates. The navigation view has detailed traffic updates and quick-access icons for select POIs that only add to the utility. With excellence voice command, the Garmin nuvi is a good choice.
This is a great sat nav for those who drive large trucks or Lorries. It prevents you from driving down a narrow country road or over a bridge that cannot cope with the weight. It offers a huge 7in screen and maps for 44 different European countries.
TomTom GO LIVE Camper and Caravan
If you are a regular camper or caravan user, then this is a strong choice for you. Providing quality sat-nav facilities, along with unique abilities that come in handy if you plan on a free-form UK or European trip in your trusty camper.
This futuristic sat-nav looks every inch the 21st century invention. It projects your directions on to the windscreen, and even better, it is highly visible on sunny days too. It requires a smartphone app to pair with it. It does not provide a map view, only directions. But when it looks this good, does it really matter?
