That's very interesting rabbiteer - wish I'd had time to think about that when I had to repair my tomtom shortly before leaving!

I've looked at it n although it says in plenty places that map updates are free, full-stop, it also says for the truck version '3yrs of free map updates' n I can see no costing of map updates for truck after that.

The truck version is considerably more expensive than the car one so I'd like to be clear on the update policy.

Hi Jean

I messaged Sygic and the cost of renewing after 3 years for another 3 years is £58.99.

I had always relied totally on it and had been really pleased with it, so bit the bullet and bought their latest 6200, on the face of it a nice replacement, however the first instant dislike problem was, that unless you have a route entered into it your speed and time of day are not shown, also no live service as such. It has got some nice features though.
We've just done 6000Kms to Norway and back and the stupid thing has failed us several times, a few incidents of wanting us to make unnecessary detours whilst on a straightforward motorway route, but most annoying whilst on a 4-500K journey it has done what appeared to be a reboot only for it to then decide it has sent you off on the wrong motorway intersection, which it noticed 24 Km up the wrong way for it to then simply tell you to "make a u turn, turn around when possible".

So I've been looking at the Garmin units, can any owners of them give their views and especially the information as to whether or not the display shows speed and time when no route is planned.

I too have a1005 TomTom but have not updated it so to avoid the troubles I have heard of, but bought the Go Camper.

The 1005 was so easy to use and never let us down at all, we now use it for the car only.

I like the GoCamper but I am still trying to find out about everything it does.
We are off to Portugal at the end of the year and I will be taking both with us just incase lol

I think the problem is with the whole of Europe map (maybe solved by now?)

I solved it by loading a 'lesser' map n it's worked since.
