Hi all, have read some reviews of the xgody sat navs where you can put vehicle sizes in, anybody used them?

Thanks

Does it do full UK postcodes or just partials?
How do you get the maps updated?
Does it carry speed camera data and how is it updated?
Does it have PoI's and how do they get updated?
Does it speak English with a clear British or US accent?
Finally - and most importantly - how do you get it fixed under warranty?

From reading reviews from various sales sites the overwhelming view is that they are not good.
Comments include unable to update maps, difficult to use, does not take account of vehicle size even though size entered, handbook useless.

Things are cheapo for a reason !!!!!!!!!

If you can make use of your phone the CoPilot app is good. About £25 per year for caravan version.

I've use the Navmii phone app. Handy for offline navigation abroad too. Has a vehicle size option which will stop you being routed down narrow roads.

I am on my second Pro Drive Europe sat nav. You can put the length, height and width weight and number of axles. It has over 30,000 campsites loaded. I paid £79.99 for my latest one. I only got rid of the first one as I couldn't be bothered to update it. I had it for 5 years so it only cost me about £17 a year. The only time it took me the wrong way was when I put the wrong destination in I will most probably get a new one in another 3 years if this one needs updating as I can't be bothered to.
