I purchased this sat nav, I must admit not from Play as I had the money in my pocket and popped into a local store to pick it up.
The online price on this item, is the same as in a store, so if you don't mind waiting for this item then it's at a great price.
I did look at another website before purchasing at the website that I looked at, there online price was £179 and instore price was £199 but thankfully I brought it at £149.
You can hook up to a PC and download map fixes etc etc which is a bonus.
All the cables come with mine even though the store person said that they didn't, bless him, so hopefully you will have everything you need as well.
Obviously local knowledge is better than using a GPS but on a longer journey or in a place that you don't know then it is invaluable. The first time I used this from town to home, I must admit that I did get lost, but that was because it said in 120 yards turn left, and my distances are not very good, so I took the left I knew that I shouldn't have done, but it soon recalculates the route automatically for you.
Big warning though, I saw something on the news today 28th September 2007 which said something about the highway code, using GPS and smoking in your car, so once in position, do not use when your driving as it might earn you points on your license now.
If like me you get lost this is a great piece of kit to have, I was using autoroute and my laptop, but if my dog sat on the laptop then the map would be closed down, and I would be lost, so having this is really important to me.
Just to give you an example, I was going to a friends place which was a 72 mile round journey, because I got lost I ended up doing 135 miles, if I had of had my sat nav at the time, then this would have saved on fuel and time.
TomTom is one of the best sat navs around, so buy with confidence and if someone tells you to get lost in the future, say thanks but I have a sat nav now.
If you haven't got a sat nav yet, then get lost and stop reading this review and hurry up and buy one now ;)
