As many of you are aware I am a bit of a gadget freak, and (as many of you probably don’t know) my sense of direction and map reading skills are pretty awful. In the car I have a navigator (the other half) who actually enjoys map reading, so much so that when I use the TomTom she still likes to...

Zumo is the best, yes, I know it's expensive but if you've got a motorbike and a car you can use it in both with easy motocycle and car mount. It's got touch screen display so can use easily while on the move even with your gloves on. You can look up addresses with post-code. It's waterproof with bluetooth. And it's MP3 player as well. Map software is very clear with preloaded safety camera alerts. However you need to update the map from time to time but it's easy to do on-line. I'm recommended to all of you if you're looking for relabel device.
