    Satnavs



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    Himself has a big birthday coming up and I am thinking of getting him a new satnav (has to be one that takes account of the van's dimensions). As a timely coincidence, MMM magazine this month has a feature on them.

    At the moment, we have the Snooper but the main reason for replacing it is that you don't seem to get map updates. So while we like it for having pre-loaded locations for aires and ACCSI, the map update function is a deal breaker.

    I am liking the look of the Aguri RV720 deluxe, and the Garmin Camper 770 LMT-D.

    Any thoughts or advice?

    Thanks in advance.

    I have the 660 LMT-D and I am very pleased with it. I have a pair of rear cameras linked to this as well.

    I think the 760 is the same as the 660 but with a 7" screen instead of 6"? (I went for the 660 as there was a factory return on Amazon at a great price).

    My Nozatec has been very useful, worth every penny. I did notice that the later Xody (which look very similar to the Nozatec) have a capacitive screen as opposed to the resistive one on my Nozatec. I was considering upgrading for that reason, but the ones I've found so far don't have AV input which I use for my reversing camera.

    The aguri 720 is android tablet with built in software for GPS and dash cam, and all the benefits of a tablet .
    All updates are free including speed cameras . ,being a tablet it is slow to boot up.it pairs with your phone for traffic updates, it dose not take a sim . lots of info and tutorials on you tube . the speed cameras warning is excellent.

    Of the ones listed, such as the XGODY, etc. do they all cover the requirement to put in Vehicle Dimensions and Weight? This is not a typical feature of most Sat-Navs, I think? (of all the ones I have used personally, only the Garmin Camper has had that)

    Yes, but they are let down by poor hardware, I think the iGo S/W is excellent

    Cannot comment in that model but I have a Truck Garmin for work. Works very well and updates are very simple which I do every 6 months.

    It also has a bug: if you are near the prime meridian it can make major routing errors.

    Snooper do have map updates. If you have an older one it takes a bit of finding, but I rang them and got them to talk me through it.
