    My garmin streetpilot has now run out of enough memory on its 2gb hard disk to hold all western europe and the UK so it looks like that we will have to replace it some time in the future. I have never used Tom Tom but with all the available downlaods for it then it looks to be the way to go, the only thing that worries me is again running out of memory. I see the TT 1 EUROPE XL has only got 1gb memory from what i have read but do it hold the mapping on SD cards ? do they come with it when bought new ?
    All help apreciated

    Hi
    I have TT1 XL Europe, it comes ready to use out of the box, all maps pre loaded and there is plenty of memory for updates and extra pois..

    I highly recommend it, one of the best, you won't be disappointed.. :thumb:

    Hi

    You could take a look at the PDAs at this ebay link = http://tinyurl.com/ynv5g9

    Get an XDA II or IIi and you will (but check) get all in one hand sized gadget :-

    Mobile Phone
    Camera
    Voice Recorder
    Windows Programs
    Wi-Fi Access (with decent sized screen for most things)
    Tom Tom (check for latest version)
    GPS Receiver
    Car Charger & Normal Charger
    Car Mount

    I have the IIi and used it across the USA - great for stopping outside motels and turning TomTom off to get emails with WiFi then back to TomTom.

    You can get a new set-up for less than £200 - which is great when you consider you're getting more than just a SatNav.

    If you dont like TomTom, just get Co-Pilot etc onto a SD Card and insert into XDA - simple.

    I know someone with a free copy of Europe TT maps if you need one (it will be 2005 maps) :Wink: .
