Default Garmin sat nav

Just bought one of these from Argos.

Very dangerous piece of kit - I look at the sat nav and not the road.

you get used to it being there. whereabouts have you put it on the windscreen (apart from the inside Betty )

I prefer mine in the bottom right rather than stuck in the middle, seems less in the way there and mines switched on about 9 hours a day.

Which one did you get?

i had the nuvi 250 originally, but me decided to break it so i sent it away and got a 250W back...

i dont use it now though, i have one of those do it all DVD player things. keeping hold as apparently my grandad is giving me dad a citroen zsara (unsure of spelling) for free. so will use it in that.

i just realised. im going back to french keeping the fat american though (ford focus)

Centre just above the original display pod.

It's the 1310 model - googled some good reviews so thought what the heck I'll have one of them.

Never used a sat nav system before - I'm impressed.

I have an old TOMTOM one, but have customised it with lane assist & Iqroutes.

It sits just to the right of centre as all the wires for that, blackberry & Ipod run behind the centre and out side of the top vent.

I only use it for speed camera data now though. I use google maps on the blackberry for nav as it's much better at traffic avoidance.
