    To the Chinese sat navs - but it isn't my fault, honest :D

    There were a couple of things that Lidl didn't have when we went to do our weekly shop this morning so we popped into one of the local Aldi branches. Noticing that they still had the Garmin Camper 760 on sale, Jill decided that we should have an Easter present :D

    So, it looks like the Chinese one is relegated to "spare" status (unless No 1 son decides he is going to have it for his camper :eek:).

    I already have Garmin Express installed because I bought a Garmin nuvi 1300, which No 2 son now uses, a few years ago. The 3 software updates for the new unit have downloaded and installed and the maps are currently 80% downloaded with 4 minutes to go. At the moment it looks to be as straightforward as updating the maps on the 1300 last week.

    Spoke too soon as the download of the maps failed. Support freephone just rings out so I've re-installed Express and I'm having another go.

    I guess this model allows you to load your vehicle dimensions into it?
