Hi,
Taxi driver Belfast soon. TomTom favorite but some say even best unit lets down on pinpointing an individual house on arrival in a street or even announcing voice directions to the exact street of destination.

Any Gurus out there do submit a line please.

Reply when time permits,

I think the house number is a sort of logical count - the device seems to have a selection of numbers (either many or few, presumably based on the length of the street) and calculates the intervening numbers. Sometimes pretty well, sometimes hopelessly. I can't imagine it being any different no matter which satnav brand you choose. Directions to exact street are usually good - more recent build is a problem, of course, so you'll be let down in new estates. I didn't think taxi drivers bothered with satnavs, I thought you all just knew places like the back of your hands and certainly were more savvy about one way systems and turn restrictions.

Please don't start a new thread on the same topic.

Continue the discussion in this thread, where Andy_P has been trying to help you. I've changed the subject to the more meaningful "Best satnav for a taxi driver".

I'll copy DennisN's post to the original thread and lock this one.
