    HURRY £89.90 Sat Nav 7 inch..
    I have just bought a 7 inch Navman sat nav with a truck mode ability.....I have not tried it out yet as you get one months free trial of the truck mode from when you start using it. BUT it is BIG and has a very strong sucker mount included with a very long ,compared to others I own, arm and adjustment ..just right for my Mk 7 transit on an amazon dash weighted Pad

    You will have to be quick as the offer from Halfraudes ends tomorrow here's a link

    Not much of a risk is it enjoy Kim :thumb:

    Good price for full EU mapping.

    Then it got me thinking, oh the pain....

    7" screen. That's good if you have the room.

    7" screen. Hey, that's a tablet.

    So why not buy a 7" Android, admittedly for a fair but more, get the free satnav software and you have the best of both worlds.

    Just a thought. BUT make sure that 7" tablet has GPS, the very cheap ones don't.

    copied from my reply to your other post

    Frankly, I have no faith in 'truck sat navs' as they use the same mapping database as every other sat nav.. For routing, they will use M and A roads and avoid low bridges, weight and width limits .. all of which can be loaded onto a TT and set for your van .. free.

    As it gets mixed reviews on Halfords I hope you follow up with yours..

    Hi once I start looking... As the unit has tom toms traffic alert licenced to it....might be able to look into using tomtom maps and profiles in the future ..there is a tutorial I found on one of the sat nav sites on how to use google mapping for free ...but for now, being able to see the map without putting on my glasses as I drive will be a boon...

    For the price cheaper than my tomtom or my Navigon and those lovely 7 colour inches .. no risk at ninety quid even if I took up the once off £70 payment for truck mode.

    Is there a camping /caravan club mapping apps available to purchase ?? Kim
