Buying a sat-nav can be a bit of a nightmare, mainly because there’s so many of them out there. Plus, you may feel like you’ve already got one if you’ve got your smartphone in your pocket. But let’s say you need to give your smartphone to your passenger because they want to update their Twitter, and now you’ve got no way of knowing where you’re going. See? You need a sat-nav! So here’s the three we recommend!

3. RAC 5000

RAC satnav

Very reasonably priced for a nice big touch-screen filled with lots of information without seeming overloaded or messy, plus you get free safety updates. For life. Winning!


Garmin satnav

HUD stands for Heads Up Display, which means that this futuristic looking piece of tech will put all the constantly updating information right on to your windscreen, so you won’t need to be distracted looking at another screen. Snazzy.

1. TOMTOM 6000

TomTom satnav B

Pretty much the Big Daddy of modern satellite navigation systems, thanks to the constantly updating traffic director from TomTom HQ itself, feeding in from 45 European countries, should you decide to take that long drive to Italy you’d always planned.
