    Check the Chinese Sat Nav

    Hi there

    If you are looking to buy a truck type sat nav check out all the posts on this site for Chinese Sat Nav.. they are priced at £62.50 !!!

    Read all the funsters posts and you'll see we're all very satisfied and highly recommend them. What better reviewers will you get than our motorhome users on MotorhomeFun!

    If you have problems with your Chinese Sat Nav the support on this forum is excellent; there is a host of info available, one post has 28 pages full. If your question is not included, post it and I'm sure someone will help you, they're brilliant on here.

    Yes - we have one and we think it's great. Also have a Tom Tom for the car and we had one of those Chinese ones which was so bad that we took a lump hammer to it. IMHO the Becker beats these hands down.

    Yes I looked into the many Chinese offerings and there are a few things that have put me off these.

    1. They operate on windows software. I have not got any windows machines in the house. I also have no CD drive to upload software to my Machine.

    2. I have seen way too many negative reviews on the internet to consider the less expensive offerings.

    3. The ones I have seen are offered with only Half the Memory capacity and you can not load the whole of the EU onto the device.

    4. I am looking for dedicated Sat-Nav not a small tablet computer with functionality that is surplus to my requirements.

    Thank you to those who have replied but I am yet to be sold on the less expensive Chinese offerings, some only come in a few pounds less than some car Navs. So I am not sure the risk is worth it. I am not set in stone and continue to do my research hence this post about the Becker 45. I am looking at as many options as possible and will consider all the comets and posts in this forum along with those gathered from other areas of the World Wide Web.

    I await other comments and suggestions and hopefully I will be able to make an informed decision before my trip to the big bad EU later in the year.:thumb:
