    Hi guys,

    I'm currently looking to buy an all-in-one SatNav system for my car, and I'm slowly getting less sure of which one to buy.

    I'm torn between 5 systems at the TomTom GO 510 and GO 910 (since the 910 has spoken road names but the 510 doesn't), the Road Angel Navigator and Navigator 6000 (which is better? how old is the navigator?) and I've also heard good things about the Sony NV-U range.

    Any opinions would be appreciated a it's good to know what experience people have had. At the moment I'm drawn toward the Road Angel Navigator as it seems to do everything I could want it to, but I'n not sure how brilliant it actually is...

    O dear...so confused.... :confused:

    A friend of mine bought a Sony satnav a few months ago, but took it back and swapped it for a TT One. He's now very happy with the One.

    Since he was happy with TT, I bought a 510. He's a real gadget king, and a lover of all things Sony. It must've been bad for him to swap it.
    I'm impressed with the 510 - does everything that I want.

    Either the 510 or 910 would be great options. I've used TomTom in the past and really enjoyed it, plus I've seen these newer devices in action and they seem really nice.

    Tomtom One is a great gadget. The only draw back is the battery so you have to have it plugged into the lighter all the time . So if thats not a problem why settle for second best. Dont over look the TOmtom 510/710/910 range. All the other manufacturers have some catching up to do. PS i am a Sony nut but woulnnt give their Sat Nav a second glance.

    I've gpt a Tom Tom One. I've had for a few months now and it hasn't given me any problems. It's quick and easy to use.
