Has anyone else heard about another on the spot fine?? Just been told that if satnav unit is above level of steering wheel (who's isnt?) then a fine can be given to the user????

Yes, I saw this in the Daily Mail earlier in the week.

It's not a new regulation. But you'd have to have it someplace that significantly affected your vision for it to attract the interest of even the most officious police officer!

Having said that, I have seen many centrally located and half way up the windscreen! That is not the best place to put one!
