My navman ICn520 is utter crap. Need something else. Anyone got any recommendations? All I want is 7 digit postcode support and cheap as poss!

Not that cheap - but this unit (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Garmin-Traffic-Satellite-Navigation-American/dp/B001ELJEQU/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1244126115&sr=1-3) will last you ages.

A map? Where do you need to get to that's so hard to find?

I've had a TomTom 720 GO and it's been a very trusty piece of kit, it's one of the high specced models so doesn't go crazy on roundabouts.

It also has a computer voice so it actually reads aloud place names and road signs which is very handy also.

Takes too long and you can't read a map whilst driving a car; it's dangerous.
I haven't finished living my life yet so I don't know all the places I'll need to go!:)
Thanks for the suggestions guys. Approaching ?300 is too much though. Will take a look at that TomTom

I use a MyGuide 3100 (bought from Ebuyer, but now out of stock, but they have two later models). I use it with the iGo v7 navigator.

It's been excellent. Well worth the 50 quid I've paid for it. I've done trips to Germany, all over France (just completing a 1657 mile roundtrip 10 days ago), and it rarely sends you wrong. In those cases, I have a preplanned route and maps and after continuing on my route for a while, it recalculates the route and usually agrees with me.

The maps are 2007 and there was a motorway in the Loire region that it didn't know about, it just gave up nagging me for a u-turn and showed me driving through the fields :D.
