jiwawa Welcome to the forum deputysherif - with that name you might be quite useful keeping this lot in line!

That's an old post you resurrected but it's good to hear of different worthy contenders in the satnav field.

Deputysherrif I have recently purchased the 720 Motorhome and Caravan model and I have to admit it is excellent. Whilst not quite as intuitive too use as the Garmins it still has all the different facilities that one would expect from a satnav dedicated to those with Motorhomes and Caravans.
The real stand out feature is the POI databases supplied. I used the Garmin earlier this year and it had approximately 9,000 campsites and aires listed across the whole of Europe. The Aguri has over 30,000 included and includes the ACSI campsites. Far more extensive than the Garmin and far more accurate when navigating to your chosen site.
I would choose the Aguri over the Garmin every time.

Most of my personal POIs consisted of Aires, stellplatz etc and this unit appears to have the lot.
Should suit you fine then, I have too many POIs of my own creation to even consider anything which can't do what a free app does.

I've used both Tomtom and Garmin units so starting and using the Aguri was quite straight forward. All menu items are fairly familiar with some extras included.
The windscreen mount is slightly different with the piece that clips onto the satnav having a folding leg that converts it to a table top stand.
The POI list is very comprehensive with endless lists of restaurants of every nationality you could think of. Australian restaurants!?
The important aires and campsite POIs come under a 'User POI' button and at first look appears to cover all bases.
The unit includes a dash cam which is new to me so I'll leave any opinion of that till I,ve used it a bit.
It has the ususal motorhome/caravan dimension settings plus a car mode as well.
Map updates and speed trap updates are free for life and updating and dash cam viewer PC software come on a DVD to be installed on a computer, or can be downloaded from the Aguri website.
I did notice that the on screen map of my area was detailed enough to show unsurfaced footpaths so street mapping should be detailed too.

Read the Nokia Maps/Navteq link and it shows you exactly how NM/Navteq do just that.

So it all depends upon which maps Garmin use - Navteq or not Navteq that is the question.

747 I don't know if technology has advanced but I have heard it said that there is no effective useful method of detecting which roads are unsuitable due to vehicle size. Therefore inputting vehicle dimensions into a satnav is more of a gimmick than a tool.

I will not mind if someone can prove me wrong as I have recently bought the Garmin 760 Camper satnav.

cabby Your description is starting to make me nudge towards changing from the TT go 720, but would it be worthwhile I ask, as mine is still giving me the service I want at the moment. I look forward to reading further reviews/comments from you.
