Is Tom Tom Mobile as good as a stand alone unit?

    Hi guys

    I will shortly be buying a sat nav system.

    I have a Nokia N70 and am considering getting Tom Tom Mobile 5 for it, but I have noticed you can buy standalone sat nac units for around the same price - £200.

    I am really keen on having sat nav on my mobile, but will a stand alone unit for the same price be a lot better?

    Many thanks

    The N70 are notoriously problematic with tomtom mobile (search pocketgpsworld.com forum and many others) so if you want something that works go for a standalone or if you still want a satnav phone get a 6680 or 6630 which by all accounts works really well with tomtom mobile.

    I've got the NOKIA 6680 and loaded it up with TOM TOM sat nav.

    Got TOM TOM 256 memory card off Ebay for £20

    Bought TOM TOM gps receiver from Ebay for £60

    All loaded up with points of interest aswell.

    ASDA.PETROL,CASHPOINTS,McDONALDS,PREMIER LODGE etc.

    I've been using nOKIA 6680 without any problems. Using a Holux bluetooth gps reciever.

    There are no problems with tom tom moble 5.20 and nokia N70

    as long as you have the latest Firmware on the N70 as older versions

    have blue tooth problems ......
