In the latest issue of Auto express (1000th edition) the Nuvi 760 came out top with Magellan Maestro 4245 second and Garmin Nüvi 200 third.
The tester liked the functionality of the 760 but did not like the non intergrated TMC antenna(there's a suprise!!!).

MaFt,

Here is the link to Auto Express product test of sat navs.

www.autoexpress.co.uk/products/products/217356/satnav_megatest.html

I wasn't sure if this type of link was allowed Embarassed

I was quite surprised that both TT devices didn't score higher Surprised

Speed trap info was spot-on and directional, with updates good value at £29.99 a year.


Confused

Oh dear. I presume they are talking about Garmin's database there....

maybe we should write to auto express and explain how the pgpsw is even better value for money so perhaps they should run an article on our database Wink

and it works on more than one manufacturer so if you switch from Garmin to TomTom you can still download the database for the same fee....

Did you or any of the other mod/admin team contact Auto Express to promote the pgpsw site and the benefits the complete database offers for only £19pa? Wink

We have tried a number of times but they are either uninterested or unwilling. But we shall keep trying!

Having read a number of their other satnav group tests as well as this one I would not place any value in their opinions anyway. As with many other magazines I wonder if they actually used some of the devices. So far off the mark are some of the wholly inaccurate observations they report.

erm..... do you have anything for Greece? If you have good cover for Germany and Switzerland I'm buying it now with no seconds thoughts!!!!
I got flashed too many times in those 2 countries!

If you're doing a database for Greece (cameras and known mobile spots)
I will be happy to give you all the locations in my area which I know!!!
