  1. TomTom GO 940 Live review

    TomTom GO 940 Live review

    9  

    Everyone knows that satnavs are cheap as chips these days, with examples available online for a good deal less than £100, something that makes the arrival of the £449.99 TomTom GO 940 Live more than a little surprising.

    TomTom GO 930T review

    9  

    TomTom may be king of the satnavs, but its crown it also prone to slipping occasionally - as we discovered during our supertest in May. Then the TomTom GO 920 Traffic proved competent enough but lacked any real killer features that separated it out from the rest of crowded satnav market. Indeed we concluded that the Garmin nuvi 770 had a better balance of features. That now looks to have changed

    Navman S90i review

    6  

    When we asked Navman to put up a satnav for our three-way test against the TomTom Go 920 T and Garmin nuvi 770, the Navman S90i was its obvious answer - all three products are the flagship models of their respective brands. And the homegrown Navman has an ace or two up its sleeve. The question is: is it enough?

    Garmin plays second (or even third) fiddle to TomTom when it comes to satnav in the UK and it's hard to see why. The nuvi 770 competes head-to-head against TomTom's flagship 920T and it's just as worthy of pole position

    It's hard to get away from TomTom's Go series of satnavs - in fact they're almost as popular in the UK as Apple's ubiquitous iPod. Given that, what's so special about this flagship model that will make you want to upgrade? TechRadar has the answer

    With a slim design and rounded edges, the iPAQ 314 Travel Companion (£246 inc. VAT) slips easily into the pocket. The 4.3-inch display has a resolution of 800 x 400 pixels, and offers a sharper picture than most of its rivals.

    Navman N20 review

    8  

    The N20 (£250 inc. VAT) is a mid-range sat-nav device from Navman. Although it comes with a reasonable price, it's far from stripped of features. At just 23mm in depth and with rounded edges, the N20 slips comfortably into small bags and coat pockets

    Medion GoPal PNA470 review: Medion's GoPal PNA470 is the firm's new top-of-the-range satnav system. As you'd rightly expect from a GPS system that costs nearly £300, it comes preloaded with maps covering a huge geographical area

    Garmin nuvi 660 review

    10  

    Garmin's new nuvi GPS navigation device bills itself as a 'personal travel assistant'. Unlike other GPS devices, this machine isn't just designed to sit on your dashboard and coo "turn left" and "turn right"

    VIAmichelin X980T review

    8  

    The ViaMichelin X980T stands out from the pack, in part because of the enormous 4.3-inch screen, but mainly because it looks more like a cross between a Nintendo DS and a paperback book than a boring old PDA

    Sony NV-U51G review

    8  

    Sony may not be the first name you think of when it comes to satellite navigation, but its NV-U51G (£199 inc. VAT) is a legitimate rival to the likes of TomTom. It has maps of the UK and the Republic of Ireland pre-installed on 512MB of flash memory
