what do people recommend tom tom or garmin regarding sat navs.the one in my sz-t is a load of tosh.wanted to go from Norwich to southend. sat nav wanted to send me to Newmarket and then down to m11.i knew full well the best route was the a12 thus avoiding m25.i have been this route many a time and knew full well I did not want to go anywhere near the m11 or 25. Shocked so I was thinking of getting a tom tom or garmin but getting mixed revues on both. Rolling Eyes

I think I have posted before but I have a theory that you never see a bush pilot or arctic explorer with a TomTom stuck to his window?

I personally use Garmin as you can manipulate them for off road routing but on the other hand if you watch the latest TV series of "Inside the ambulance" they also have Garmin head units so I guess they would use the best

I use a tom tom 5100, its last years model so good deals, life time world maps, life time traffic using an on board sim card and life time speed cameras. Offers different routes and if you need to force a route use the Via option. With tom tom buying second hand loses the life time options, so make sure it comes with it. Not sure if its the same with Garmin

You could also try Sygic on your phone. They use TomTom maps and also give you the option to use it via Mirrorlink.
They usually offer a week's free trial.
I don't have a built in SatNav in my current vehicle, but use the Sygic when travelling anywhere local via the M74 and its myriad of Average Speed Cameras. The Real Time Traffic updates is pretty spot on.

I prefer Garmin to Tom Tom, but Garmin tends to issue voice info at same time as the Bosch; whereas the Tom Tom is off set and easier to hear if both are used at same time. If you want to stop using the Bosch, I would choose Garmin.

Have Garmin Nuvi & Snooper, prefer the Snooper in operation & ease of PC connection for updates etc.

The real weak link in the Vitara chain is definitely the satnav, seems to be easy for the computer geeks to hack into the Pentagon and probably GCHQ, could we find one that allows us to install some decent software to the Vitara head unit !!
