I'm looking for a facility that I suspect many others would welcome. I frequently find that the most acceptable route from A to D is not via B and C and is neither the "fastest" nor the "shortest" but ...

Tap the lower left corner of the screen to get the volume slider, it doesn't really get much easier than that - MikeDoh! When in doubt read the instructions!

I'm looking to replace my aged TomTom 910. I'm looking at either a Garmin or a TomTom but I wonder which uses the better mapping database?

I ask because I've used Garmin "handheld" GPS units for so ...

Thanks for replies.

Sussamb: I was looking at the Nuvi 3790 and 1490 on the Garmin site - they seem very similar in many respects. Did you do much research before choosing the 1490 and if so, what ...

My TomTom 910 is increasingly frustrating; maps are out of date and it doesn't tell me the speed limits, plus I find the user interface awkward.

I want a Satnav that:

Unless I've missed it somehow, I can't see from their website anywhere telling us in any detail what the changes are in v1.5
