    This is the thread that persuaded me to buy one. Cheap and Chinese but the supplier (Navibuzz) is UK based.

    If you have a smartphone, Copilot Truck is around £90, saves having a separate satnav and works well on my iphone. You can input the dimensions of your vehicle etc, the roof and sides of my van are intact to date :thumb:

    seriously this is the dogz bllx

    i have sat mavs over £100 in my vans for my guys ,
    but i bought this few months ago for my 4x4 and i use it in the motorhome every week end and seriously the best deal out there fully loaded with every item of intrest , speetrap and cameras nu even go on line when ever you want and get free updates for LIFE, better than garmin and many more ou6t there,, iv used several in over 15 years and this beats them u can also use as a media player or plug in a mini hdmi all comes with it use it as a tv screen from your satellite box. if you buy it and dont like it il buy it from you for the price you paid from the ebayer link,,

    yes it does very clearly states motorway lanes ahead

    just looks like the gantry above ,,
    better and brighter than any other i have used im sure the firmware or software is similer to others being sold but the graffix and the ease of use is
    cool ,, what can i say for this kind of money and then extras you get with it
    is . i even have a mini av imput cable in my dash from my satellite system that means when im waiting on the wife or kids say in a carpark or just want to sit up front i can use it as a 7" tv monitor with sound , now thats even better,,,,:thumb:
