I know this sounds like a straight forward question but ,infact it is not so easy to answere as some of you will be temted to say for instance," I have tom tom 1 and it works fine for me" But what i want is what really makes a good gps and why? What do you need from it and what apects are god, bad, and indifferent? I have run gps systems for years my 1st one costing about £1000.00. There are still grey areas within them. they are not perfect and don't compare to say good local knowledge.they get you buy but are not all what they are cracked up to be.I have a couple of gripes one of which is why oh why does it say bear left or bear right when infact you are staing on the same road and are not goint to turn from it but it will insist on giving you too much information. also it might have shortest or quickest routes but it doesn't have most sensible route. Let me explain if you need to go from A to B the other side of the city it will take you through the city wether quickest or shortest route is chosen.But if it had most sensible(or Likely) it would take you on the city ring road and get you there in best time avoiding the city centre.In shorteste quickest are not the only choices you would use.I also like the to hear that not only you need to turn right but to hear "urn right on oxford street". It might seem a all point to you but i think it is important.What points do you have I have others and i will add them at a later date when I see others are intrested in voicing opinions on this subject.They for sure don't take into account Traffic but they are at least doing something about that with certain add ons. The point of this should help people decide in what they want out of a GPS and help them with getting the most out of one,and also help with their budget and different platforms to have a GPS on. Well that's me for now, what say you?
