I've owned the Garmin Streetpilot for a while now and used it many times. The unit comes with a holder and suction cup which can attach to the dash or the windscreen and the power cable is plenty long enough to reach the cigarette power socket. The Street pilot also has a SD card which can be...

Having replaced my Nuvi 300 with the Street Pilot c500t and road tested it over the past few days, I can say that it certainly holds its own in the world of in-car satelite navigation. Working straight from the box, it acquired a satelite lock within a very short space of time, less than a minute from first switch on. Super easy to use, with full postcode or address search in the UK and Europe. Pre-loaded with points of interest and safety camera warnings. Text to speech is a great bonus, keeping your eyes on the road and not on the screen. Clear Instructions and easy side volume control. Bluetooth was set up in seconds. The car connector is a bit fidly.
