Hi, I think my early version start 25 is giving up. I kept it because as itís an early one, I can still use the speed camera database on it. However recently itís become unreliable.
Loses the GPS signal quite often and can take up to 10 mins to get it back.
Normaly it's just a couple of mins.
Plus when it comes back I'm quite oftern in a field or driving through someones house!
No change in car so thatís not the issue.
I've done a full reset and itís made no difference.
Any suggestions or is it time to replace?
If so with what? cuss as we all know the current TomToms do not accept the Speed camera.
Thanks

Any Garmin accepts the database.

Just find the one that suits your budget.

From what I've read they're as bad as each other in certain situations.

As with most SatNavs you have to watch out for silly side turns when you are nowhere near your destination.
