We look at the best sat nav sales in the UK

There is a lot to be said for the arrival of the sat nav revolution we're sure you'll agree. The days of struggling desperately to find yourself on a map while trying to keep your attention on the road are certainly a thing of the past. Satellite navigation systems not only make the driving experience an easier one, but they also make it an infinitely safer one.

Even if you're from the old school who believes in letting your passenger handle the navigation responsibilities en route to your destination, we're sure you'll be pleasantly surprised by just how much the technology in sat navs has come along in just a few short years.

The original units tended to be ugly, bulky affairs with non-responsive touch screen interfaces and finicky menu systems, as well as highly inaccurate at the most inopportune of times. Although the idea was a sound one, it took a little time for the technology to catch up so that everyone could afford reliable sat nav systems.

Fortunately, today's drivers find themselves spoiled for choice when it comes to which system to choose. Even the cheapest, most low specced devices do a more than capable job at getting you from A to B with as little confusion as possible. In fact, things are so tight in terms of quality that manufacturers have found that the only way to set themselves aside from the competition is to offer a range of extra features - such is the uniformity of the performance level of these devices.

This puts the consumer in a strong position when it comes to buying a new one, with continual sat nav sales in the UK offering superb prices at almost all times. Even the major high street retailers are getting in on the act. At Tesco you'll be able to find brand names like Tom Tom and Garmin for less than £100. This is mirrored at ASDA and Argos, who both boast an impressively wide range of sat nav systems for unbelievable prices.
