What is your SatNav like? Three years ago chances were that it was rectangular, plasticky with very little style. Those days are long gone, and Blaupunkt have now shattered the rectangular design standard by producing a circular SatNav. This is an interesting style, and could throw you back to the 70's reminiscent of the medallions worn by the Bee Gees...

Design aside another new feature of the TravelPilot Lucca is an "Ecological" option allowing you to select a route offering lower fuel burn and lower emmissions. I am not entirely sure how they create that routing or if indeed it realy is more efficient.

The TravelPilot Lucca will be available this month in the UK and is priced at 270 which may seem a bit expensive, but it does come with TMC for traffic updates, full European mapping and European Speed camera data (Not the PocketGPSWorld.com database).

Quirky Shocked

You would have though that they could have made more use of the bits around the edge. Whats the big blue button for I wonder? (Apart from being the obvious Blaupunkt logo)

The European mapping sounds a little strange. It would appear that you have the equivalent of a TomTom UK/Ireland with MOWE plus all the detailed European mapping on DVD. How do you use this to do door-to-door routing from UK to Italy (for example)?

nope the big blue button is the power on/off button the volume is on both sides of the blue button
also just to let you know before any body goes out and buys 1 you cant view the screen whilst driving just gives voice commands displays it is illegal to view whilst driving arggggh must be a way around that Laughing Out Loud

update-: got that annoyed with the damn thing took it back and bought a navman n40i much easier to use and also comes with a built in camera Laughing Out Loud
