Hi I first bought my Garmin Nuvi 310D a very long time ago now; but it cost me a packet. I'd hope £300 would last me a long time. But as time goes by, I'm wondering if thats a falicy and you should jsut buy the cheapest satnav that does the job. My satnav feels slow; becoming less responsive. I've given it no new maps; no patches or updates; its stock standard - so not sure why its feeling slow. Also, importantly, it keeps taking bizzare routes; the other day I was travelling back on a main A road, we came to a small village, 30mph. The Garmin was telling me to turn off, left onto a road. Because the satnav only shows so much of the route, i could not see if it was taking me to a new A road, or we'd re-meet the current A road. I hoped it was the former. I was wrong, the left run became a smaller and smaller, a 1 car track, and finally remet the original A road. All because the satnav thought I could barrel down this track at 60, rather than the village 30. Total joke; lost time and covered my car in dirt etc. Questions: 1. Should I give up on my old satnav, or can I fix it and it'll be great? 2. If I should be buying a new satnav, what should I get? Big question I know, and depends upon my desires; but what are the new features/aspects worth considering? . Considerations: In my early days I returned a Navman and got the Garmin because the Navman couldn't get signal in builtup areas, and the Garmin did fine!! I liked the Navman had 'avoid this area' - the Garmin does not; handy if you know a road is blocked. I dislike that my Garmin only has one via point. I cannot plan a route on my PC and dump onto the 310D I think. I am not bothered about it talking the street name. I dislike how multilane junctions I dont know which lane i need other than: Keep left, keep right; it all get a bit too late and I just decide my self. I dont care about funny voices, nor about realistic tree backgrounds etc; I want something smooth & quick that gets signal. I like Avoid Tolls and Motorway feature of my sat nav, but sometimes it then choses the oddest narrow route, where a quick A road nearby would be better. Being able to chose your own 'average speed' for road types would be handy; or satnavs that do it better today. I very much dislike how my missus cheap Garmin does not allow you to work offline - it constantly searches for a satellite, whereas my 310D you can shut the antenna and start planning without interuption. The 310D came with lifetime congestion alert - I never use it. Its missing speedcamera alert, which is a shame. And you have to pay for updated maps; surely they're cheaper or free by now??!! I do not want to buy into any subscription. Nuvi 1440T - seems to tick lots of my boxes, but what have I missed about it? I'll be on the road soon and will see if I like my mates TomTom; I have no idea what it'll be like; I think his is only a year or so newer than my 310D. Thanks to anyone who took the time to read this.
