Advantages: Really helpful in guiding you through places you don't know and haven't got a detailed map for.
Disadvantages: It can feel a bit like you're being nagged at with the turn left, enter roundabout, turn right etc

The Garmin Nuvi 250w is rather a nice compact little wide screen sat nav. We received ours second hand from my dad when he upgraded, and since we got it, we've used it a fair few times to help us get to and from places. We find the thing a bit of a nag so ...

Garmin Nuvi 250 Satnav (/GPS)

No slip shod slap dash sloppy sat nav . . .

Advantages: So simple to use.
Disadvantages: Easy target for thieves.
