GPS & satnav reviews

The latest GPS & satnav reviews at PC Advisor. GPS & satnav user reviews, ratings, buying advice and price comparison

  • Navicore Personal

    Satellite navigation is a simple concept. A receiver triangulates itself with three or four of the 24 GPS satellites in orbit around the world. A map database…

  • Mio A201 review

    The Mio A201 does everything it's supposed to do well. If you plump for this product, you'll find the experience perfectly satisfying.

  • Evesham Nav-Cam 7500 TMC

    Design-wise, the Evesham is a beast of a unit, but while the buttons are generously proportioned, we found some controls fiddly and ineffective.

  • MyGuide SilverGuide 5000 NAV

    The 5000 did a decent job of guiding us around northern France. What it didn't excel at was getting us from Brighton to a location in south-east London.

  • Acer e310 Travel Companion

    GPS has been around for quite a while, but until now most of the devices have been designed to work in vehicles. With its e310, Acer has taken up the challenge of…

  • Medion GoPal PNA 465

    Medion's dashboard-based satnav is sleek, slick and simple to use - but it ain't cheap.

    £260 inc VAT

    Score - 8 out of 10

  • Mio Digiwalker C250

    If you're looking for a simple navigation device but can live without unnecessary bells and whistles, Mio's Digiwalker C250 is a decent bet. Simple, compact and easy…

    £170 inc VAT

  • Navman N20

    This slim device comes with a car charger and a USB lead, and boasts a five-hour battery life. A cinch to use, a five-hour battery and clean, clear maps earn this…

  • Evesham Nav-Cam 7700 with AA Navigator Vive

    Although the AA branding on the Navigator Vive will reassure those new to satnav devices, at heart this is a good-looking, great value GPS unit that's let down by a…

  • Intempo Digital Buddy

    There are pink PlayStations, pink mobiles, pink iPods, pink laptops… so why not a pink satnav? Well, in this case it's a bit too basic for our taste and it isn't…

    £229 inc VAT

  • Tom Tom ONE Europe

    With tiny dimensions and the smallest windscreen mount we've seen, the Tom Tom is perfect for modest navigators' pockets. But it could do with either losing a few…

  • Navicore Personal 2007 on Nokia E61

    Navicore is software designed for mobile use, so we loaded it on to a Nokia E61 and took it out for a stroll. It's the best current implementation of satnav designed…

    £101 inc VAT

  • Telenav 4.7 for BlackBerry

    The Telenav is a sensible marriage of large-screen satnav handset and robust mapping software.

    £5 inc VAT

    Score - 8 out of 10

  • CoPilot Live on T-Mobile MDA Compact III

    We reviewed Destinator on an HP iPaq alongside CoPilot Live installed on a T-Mobile MDA Compact III. This version - the T-Mobile - was useful, but with some glitches.

    £220 inc VAT

    Score - 6 out of 10

  • Destinator 6 with Traffic Sam

    PDA-based satellite navigation systems may soon be superseded by large-screen phones with built-in GPS, but only if the software is as good as this.

    £150 inc VAT

    Score - 6 out of 10

  • HP iPaq rx5700 Travel Companion

    The latest addition to HP's iPaq line-up is gorgeously styled and truly portable.

    £288 inc VAT

  • Garmin nüvi 660

    Garmin, already a popular brand in the GPS market, should win a few more fans with its 660.

    £350 inc VAT

    Score - 9 out of 10

  • Novogo S700 GPS device

    There's no AC charger and you need to shell out for TMC traffic updates, but overall this compact, dashboard-based GPS system is top of the class.

    £200 inc VAT

  • V7 PMD 1400

    If we needed proof that Packard Bell's Compasseo 500 couldn't cut the mustard, V7's PMD 1400 has proved its ultimate source of shame. With a similarly cheap tag, this…

  • Packard Bell Compasseo 500

    When a navigation device that's available for just £110 landed on PC Advisor's review desk, we weren't expecting a lot. And not a lot is exactly what we got.
