    Be aware the "world edition map" means that for Australia you get only major roads. Theres no maps of the capital cities let alone any other cities or towns. Disappointing considering it's being offered for sale in this country.
    If they are silly enough to import it without the right maps I'd just download them illegally, I'd never normally do it but this is stupid!

    With google maps free on all good phones, why do people still buy GPS sat navs anyway? I get it for more detailed uses such as mountain biking and hiking, but for roads!?

    I have a proper GPS and using a phone makes me angry, same with the iPad I used, I have a couple of Android phones and they both suck compared to a dedicated GPS. It goes five hours on a battery and has live traffic updates with the charger plugged in, that has guided me around a couple of traffic incidents in Sydney. Maybe you can get live traffic updates on a phone but I tried a couple of GPS apps and didn't like them at all.

    Yeah that's fair enough, how much does something like live traffic updates cost?

    It's included in higher end models and usually has no ongoing costs, mine also does bluetooth handsfree which has a much better speaker than the phone. Also most models can be set so they come on when the car starts up so you get speed camera warnings and notifications if you are speeding.

    Also if you are out of data most phones won't allow gps use unless you preinstall the maps.

    good point about the data, especially in Australia where it's so expensive! Know of any good deals on GPS that offer the live updates?

    Here in the UK I can currently get unlimited for 12 about $21:

    strangely says for 1 month, but I think it just means you have to pay 12 as it's PAYG:
    Unlimited internet, texts & 250 mins for 12 pounds | giffgaff.com

    12 goodybag


    For only 12 get 250 UK minutes, unlimited UK texts and unlimited Internet for one month. Plus, you will still benefit from our free giffgaff to giffgaff calls and texts on top of that.
    Note: You'll need to top-up credit if you run out of your goodybag inclusive minutes or if you want to use services that aren't included in your goodybag like International calls.


    To get your 12 goodybag you first need to get a SIM card and activate it online. If you already have an active SIM card you can purchase this goodybag from the top-up page. If you already have a live goodybag, you can purchase a second one making it start right after the current one expires.





    12 goodybag rates

    Calls, texts, call forwarding and video calls to giffgaff Free
    Calls to other UK mobiles, landlines and call forwarding (per minute) 10p after the inclusive
    minutes in goodybag
    Texts to other UK mobiles and landlines Unlimited
    Voice mail (per call) 8p after the inclusive
    minutes in goodybag
    Mobile Internet Unlimited
    Free phone numbers (starting 080 & 0500) Free
    More info on pricing
    Unlimited texts and internet
    We are unlimited for personal mobile use - but not for commercial and automated use.
    Tethering is not permitted on 12 goodybag.
    Free to giffgaff
    You need to top-up by top-up voucher, top-up by credit /debit card or buy a goodybag from your credit /debit card at least every 3 months to receive free giffgaff to giffgaff calls. If you don't, other UK rates will apply as above. The free giffgaff to giffgaff calls last for 60 minutes per call, so you need to hang up and re-dial if you want to keep talking for free.
