Where can you find the best cheap sat nav offers in the UK?

Formerly the domain of hugely expensive items, the sat nav market has recently seen a huge drop in prices, making systems available to everyone instead of the rich few.

If you've never had a sat nav system before, then you'll be unaware of just how helpful they can be, especially when it comes to making a journey you are unfamiliar with. They are a far safer option than trying to plot your course on a map as you go, and definitely make less mistakes than a human co-pilot!

However there is a direct correlation between the accuracy of your sat nav system and the amount of money you have spent on it. The more high end devices tend to have much more accurate directional sense, and can usually pinpoint your exact location far more accurately than the cheaper models.

On top of this, you're also more likely to have more up to date maps, often with free upgrades for the first year or so, right out of the box. It can be quite disorienting to be following a motorway in a straight line only for your sat nav to tell you that you're in the middle of a field, while trying to get you to turn around constantly. For this reason, we would advise you to avoid the cheapest end of the market.

But don't worry, there are plenty of cheap nav bargains to be had, especially from Tesco who offer the excellent Garmin Nuvi 2200 with full UK and ROI maps for just £89.97, or the Tom Tom Start for only £99.97 from their website at direct.testo.com. There are plenty more offers like those available on the site, so head on over and check it out for yourself.
