I have one, a €200 Lidl job and it's great. I'd still be chasing my tail around Liverpool and Birkenhead with my newly acquired Tezza looking for the Ferry Terminal if it wasn't for it.

I wouldnt be inclined to spend much more than a few hundred on one though. Get the Lidl one if it comes up again i cant fault it. Mapping is spot on i've only ever seen it get lost once or twice in low lying valleys or the like, and you find your way out of those ok usually... Suppose in Ireland its only really justifiable if you're from the sticks like me and you're trying to find you're way around the big smoke or one of the other cities you may not be familiar with

I've been thinking of getting one of these lately. Most of the time I know where I'm going but think it would be handy for getting around cities and big towns. One thing I've been wondering is how it gets on in towns with one way systems and the like

Was considering gettin one myself actually, but i'd only really need it for trips up the country, such as the rolling road etc... not much use for it otherwise, i'm a great believer in the old maps and route planners, still though if i c one for a good price i'd prob get it!

Well the one i had was trying to send me the wrong way down some one way streets in Galway. I suppose it all depends on how up to date the maps are on the unit itself
