TomTom repair - let's talk Sat Nav

by George Lovell | | 0 comments

A few Sat Nav's in for repair recently, including this TomTom with a broken charging port.

These are far less common than they were in the 2000's, because more cars have built-in navigation, and every smartphone has free access to Google Maps and Waze; which provide real-time traffic updates and road information. A Sat Nav can also provide traffic updates, but requires an internet connection.

Advantages of using a Sat Nav are:
> Large display and loud audio
> GPS apps consume your phone battery and mobile data allowance
> Keeping your phone connected to Bluetooth without disruption or complications

It seems difficult to justify having a Sat Nav if you have a smartphone, but it comes down to personal preference.
