    Might as well buy a decent Android Tablet and put your own software on it. I have a Samsung S4 Tablet and it is amazingly fast. Free maps for life can mean their expected life of the equipment or they make the new map files to big to fit in the old units. CoPilot have just changed theirs so older Android Tablets will not run it.

    Truck versions still take you down narrow lanes or take you miles out of your way to get to main truck routes.

    This is a simple route which way would you go from home to school If you had to add in road widths and all roads were narrow then the software would still pick a route. So they would weight the route according to Distance, Type of Vehicle, Road Width, Bridges etc.

    Route is HOME B D F SCHOOL

    The Aguri Motorhome & Caravan RV720 DVR looks interesting as it has built in traffic camera and connection for reversing camera (interesting for me as I have a 10 year old Garmin and no traffic cam or reversing cam and I like the idea of having only one device on the dash). Are there other sat navs with built in traffic camera AND connection for reversing camera. Also what is peoples experience of these in practice. Do you have to use the sat nav manufactureís reversing camera - I would prefer a wired one? I have a PVC and the ability to enter vehicle dimensions is not important.

    I can load my Garmin Nuvi with open source maps when travelling to places like Australia, and of course the WC POIs.

    My point is that with 'good' software you shouldn't have to move start or finish points, my Tomtom and Garmin handle the same routes with no problem.

    Presumably one camera is activated by engaging reverse gear. How is the other one set up? Obviously you wouldn't want a permanent rear view display when you want to use the sat nav. Is there a button to toggle between the sat nav and camera?

    Of course TomTom and Garmin never get anywhere as near as good in the first place. But if you prefer to pay more for a vastly inferior product, feel free.
    Pity xgody don't know about the fix, I only bought it last year!
    Tomtom and Garmin both do what I require without the problems of xgody etc, so to me that makes them far superior.

    Yup, I have one camera that is turned on by the reversing light getting power. the other I have set so when the lights are turned on, it gets power (temp way until I run a separate switched line for it - so if I want to be able to use that camera, I just turn the side lights on at the moment).

    How it works on the display is you decide which is the primary camera and gets displayed automatially when powered up (so the reversing camera for me) and which is the secondary camera for which you just press an on-screen icon in the corner to show that camera (and hit the button again to turn off (and the icon only appears if that camera has power to it and so the system has detected it.)
    I wanted the 2nd camera as a backup to the mirror occasionally as half my rear door glass is blocked from view.
    Interestingly, the Garmin system refer to the extra camera in the settings as a "babycam". So maybe their idea was you would have this extra camera pointing at a baby seat behind you and can check on your child with a push of a button rather than turning round and taking your eyes off the road?

    Don't know the software date because I have binned it - I need a satnav I can trust.
