Hi all , firstly i'm a newbe here, so if I make any mistakes please be gentle.
I have been looking for a new satnav for my new (to me ) MoHo, i have seen several on e-b@y for £40- £60, all singing and dancing, now forgive my cinisysm, but this looks to good to be true, I wondered has any one here any knowledge of these units, good or bad, most dont even have a brand so I can't check. I hope to make the first trip to Newark Show in March to see how the seasoned veterans do it
i'm on a steep learning curve.
Thanks.
Old Al

If you use the search facility on here you will find loads of people well satisfied with cheapo satnavs.

My approach is a cheap Android tablet ( with GPS ) or an Android phone ( agian with GPS )and Copilot Live. A bit more expensive but the software is top notch. There is a very good Chinese Android phone reported on here for £60/68 which would be ideal and you get a phone too.

So tablet £50/60
Copilot £30

I bought my Garmin from Tesco for £30....It doesn't have map updates for life, but at that price I'll just buy an updated on at some point in the future

my gamin with good features was just under 100 quid with life time mapping . Plus you can plan your routes on a PC using either Mapsource or basecamp and download to satnag. Beware not all allow you to download 3rd party POI, these essential for motorhome travel.....

It was This Thread which convinced me to buy one of the NozeTec eBay offerings (by Navibuzz in my case) and we've been well satisfied with it. Price differences may be accounted for by the inclusion (or not) of a Micro SD card.

I was one of many who bought the Navibuzz mentioned above and have been well pleased with the performance. Oh and by the way . . .

(y) Hi Brian..........ready to ditch our trusty tom-tom 960 which to be fair is ready for replacing. We have a Samsung tab 3 with GPS. Will Copilot work with this ? :)

Yes. Download the free one first then upgrade to get full voice prompts when running.

i know this is a little late but... I tried the free version of copilot on an old samsung tab3 7" i had lying around. It was awful, some times, the app wouldnt start, I couldnt figure out how to turn the view to "head up", it stopped navigation when I took a different route, it was generally very slow to respond and update - not sure if that was the application or the tablet (but its not that old a model)
All in all, it put me off parting with any money for the regular version - which I was all but set on in my head...
