  • GPS preference question

    If you were looking at the Navman or TomTom, both 4.3" and similar price, what would be your preference and why?
    Primary use will be in-car navigation. Anybody here sell these things? I'd prefer to keep the money local.
    Thanks,
    Andy

      I used the tom-tom last weekend whilst in Melbourne, was very happy with it, and soon learnt that any "local knowlegde" was 90% of the time bettered by the tom toms knowledge .

      No navman experience, not qualified to speak on it.

          Fuck - get a Garmin! Nuvi 660 w as great for trip round oz recently - garmin also have off road software which gives you all your little goat tracks and beach tracks.
          also has cool function that lets you know how far away you are from the nearest atm,hotel,servo,KFC,cinema etc....

              yeah, And if/when you do, can you let me know? I have been going in and asking every week or two, and keep getting the same answer, "should be withing the next two weeks"

              Anyone know anything about the Blackberry Phone that supposedly does GPS?

                Otherhalf has a blackberry for work through Telstra. GPS function doesnt work without a $15pm subscription to whereis. Im sure there'd have to be a way around that with some third party sw.
                In complete darkness we are all the same. It is only our knowledge and wisdom that seperate us. Dont let your eyes deceive you.
                Its the little things that make the difference

                  do you pay the subscription? if so do you know how the navigation function compares to the nokia one? The bill isnt my problem, work will take care of it so they shouldnt mind paying to make sure i get from site to site as efficintly as possible.

                    ^ Ditto. I've used TomTom and have found it is that good I haven't bothered trying anything else.

                      We have the Garmin Nuvi 300. Had it since February this year.
                      Used it in Melbourne (worked very well, especially when I asked it to avoid the Toll Roads etc for me).
                      However, it did have a hissy fit a couple of weeks ago, and was all over the place. Finished up having to do a full reset (thought I would lose all my info, favourites etc., but didn't). Works like a treat, again.
                      Will try it on the bike soon (in the upper compartment of the tank bag, with ear pieces attached. Power will be from the Powerlet outlet in the glove box of the bike even tho' the unit operates with battery).

                        I take it no dealers are around. I've been looking around for one but the only one with specs that suit me is the Navman S90i.

                        Went for a trip around WA last month with a nuvi 550 and the only place it stumbled was between Pardoo and Marble Bar. Could have been due to going via Shay Gap. It got confused a bit around all the mining tracks out there. But a quick comparison with GPS coords to the good old paper map had us back on the right track.

                          My two cents . . . .

                          Both are very good i can get the tomtom cheap so i would use this.




                          Cheers Rickyj

                              Finished up with a Uniden GNS 8365.
                              I renewed my phone contract with Telstra
                              and they gave me one and a new phone.
                              Makes you wonder how much these things
                              are really worth and how much we're getting
                              overcharged.
