Choosing between the Garmin and TomTom satnavs is not an easy thing to do, especially when everyone seems to knwo the name TomTom! To make it easy ill say this, buy the Garmin. I found it much easier to use than the tomtom. Not only that its a very good price as well!
Set up is very simple, instructions tell you everything you need to know how to get the unit up and running properly. The unit itself is pretty decent to look at, so its not an eyesore when your driving along with it in your field of view. Build quality is very good and feels like a solid bit of kit.
The software itself is very easy and even my dad managed to use it the other day after 10 minutes with the manual so it cant be that difficult. The maps can be viewed in either 2D or 3D, and can also be zoomed in and out. Theres plenty opf built in points of interest as well so you'll never be short of a petrol station etc.
Overall this is a brillaint buy for the moneya nd i would recommend it over the tomtom anyday.
Summary: Definately worth a punt!
