    Mapping data for satellite navigation systems is supplied by third parties. The Navigator 6000 and Navigator 7000 use TeleAtlas maps as used by TomTom, and as such there is little difference between them in the navigation aspect. The main Road Angel Navigator uses NAVTEQ maps as used by the premium Garmin systems......dave

    We had a little one that was on offer in one of the high street shops, had speed camera warnings as well, around £80. We now have a Tom Tom, enough said.

    Had a quick look at model 9000 ,

    It doesn't mention whether you can add POIs nor if you can input a GPS co ordinates rather than a street address . It may well have, but if not I wouldn't even consider it.

    I got rid of a Magellan Roadmate for these reasons.. and bought a TT One XL

    we have just purchased a TTom live IQ, TT are giving away a years subscription with the Live series at the moment.

    First impressions are good, the TT downloads traffic information every 3 minutes and update your route telling you the delay and asking if you want to re route.

    Also it will give weather forcast anywhere in EU, and a load of other useful stuff. See the TT site for details.

    Lane routing is good.

    I was intrigued to learn that the traffic information is gained from mobile telephone information. Basically most people have M/phones. There positions are monitored and when a bunch of them getogther and slow down / stop. the software works our the delay ect. Cute.

    Quite what happens near areas of high density phone use I dont know, Blue water or other shopping areas must be filtered out somehow,

    It seems that TT use Road Angel data. Hence my response the question,
