Leave the map behind and put your faith in a trusty sat nav. If you’re heading off on holiday to an unfamiliar destination, these devices are the solution that will get you there without a hitch (or any arguments over which motorway exit you should’ve taken). Perhaps you’ll be using your sat nav on your daily commute so you can receive traffic alerts and alternative routes. Wherever you’re headed, these are the perfect driving companions.
If you are buying a sat nav for the first time, it’s a good idea to take time to consider what you want from yours – just the basics, or something that offers lots of additional features? Take a look at our sat nav buying guide.
Perhaps you spend your working life on the road? Lorry drivers will appreciate the capabilities of truck sat navs, which offer especially tailored routes and handy extras like stopped traffic alerts. Choose a device that lets you enter your vehicle’s precise specifications – be it a lorry, van or bus – so you never find yourself heading down a road that can’t accommodate your vehicle.
If you’re looking to accessorise your car, TomTom sat navs are the ideal addition, with smart routing and lifetime map updates. Be sure to choose a model which offers speed camera alerts and built-in Wi-Fi too, so you can make updates ultra-fast and easily. Whichever one you go for, you can expect a colour display that’s crystal clear. Garmin sat navs are another brilliant quality option. Go for one, which offers lane guidance and Bluetooth for hands-free calling, to ensure you stay safe on the road.
No matter which sat nav you decide on, sat nav mounts are what you need to ensure yours is safely and securely positioned before you set off on any journey. And when you’re not using your sat nav, be sure to keep it protected from any knocks and scratches using a one of our sat nav cases. Go for one that has room for all the extras such as chargers and cables.
Another bit of car kit you might want to consider is a dash cam. We’ve got a wide selection of discreet options from top brands. You won’t notice it’s there, but it will be just what you need to make sure you’ve got supporting evidence in the event of an on-the-road incident.
