TomTom Go 720T
Advantages: Great satnav
Disadvantages: Traffic receiver is not worth the extra money
This is a great sat nav if you're on a budget. It is part of the TomTom x20 series. The current series is the x50 so it is 3 generations old, however it is still very very good.
TomTom allows you to update it online getting the latest speed cam locations and latest softwate although you have to pay to update maps :(
The great thing I found about this device is that it can link to an FM radio or bluetooth audio device. At first I had it playing music and directions through the car radio. However when I discovered the extensive bluetooth functionality I used that as sound quality is much improved.
The TomTom also allows you to connect it to your phone for use as a handsfree kit. This is great stand-alone or linked to your car speakers
Where this device differs to the normal 720 is that it has a traffic receiver which is supposed to receive updates on traffic. While this function might work great in America, the amount of roads which have traffic updates is small in the UK; even in London. Therefore, this feature is pretty much useless.
The mount for this device is very sturdy and the screen is of a very good size, I really cant fault it.
Summary: Good if you're on a budget
