More of a computer than a sat nav

Disadvantages: Subscription costs

My girlfriend had been pestering me for ages to get a sat nav for her car, and a few months ago i took the plunge to treat her. As we are planning on driving to the south of France later in the year, I wanted to make sure i got one with Europe maps on ...

740 is a good sat nav but maps slightly disappointing

Advantages: Display, Design, Windscreen mount

OK for a while, but now losing favourites, and Tomtom not fixing

Advantages: Reasonable navigation
Disadvantages: loses favourites on map updates, poor battery life, backup/restore unreliable.
