If you search for satnavs you may come across http://theelectronicscorp.com/
I respectfully suggest you avoid them.
The phone numbers are not live and emails are bounced back.The site does NOT have a secure server for taking money from your card.
search Google for it and you will see a number of comments regarding its authenticity.Although it has a Merseyside address,its not actually there and is registered in Florida.
I hope this avoids a few people being diddled out of their cash

Thanks for the heads-up. Although we normally prohibit posts such as this from users with less than 10 posts it is clear that this operation is very dodgy and highly likely to be a scam so its important we get the message across that they should be avoided!

Also to the list of things which make the site look dodgy, the currency is listed as GPB instead of GBP!

And, on their "about us" page, their spelling of the word "USEFUL" with two "L"s!

I am so sorry to inform you (Darren) that you have failed your Jobsworth test miserablly

So good to see a pragmatic interpretation of the rules!
