    Can anyone recommend a sat nav system around the 100 quid mark,
    i have been looking at the RAC 200 and Tom Tom One V3.
    Anyone got any views on either of these or suggest any others i should consider.
    Rac costs 89.99 and Play.com are doing the Tom Tom for 120 delivered.
    Thanks
    Nik.

    Don't get the Nuvi, I don't know which monkey programmed the routes into it, but it always takes the most direct route (no matter what setting you have it on) which means going down narrow country lanes instead of sticking to the known main routes. This is a BIG problem I think, especialy when I use it in my van at work.

    Howdy,

    I got a tomtom 910, works great for me.... pics up the sats fast when you boot it up, got it at the end of last year. It comes with the whole of Europe, America and OZ land. I have used it twice driving out to Czech Republic from Scotland (Glasgow to Newcastle then Amsterdam to Brno in Czech) without issue. Even keeps up with me on der Autobahn :jump:

    Apart from that, dont know how the other makes are soz.
