The Garmin unit received a very poor write up in G3. I've seen the TomTomGO in action. Its remarkably accurate and uses a touch screen. I've also seen a Panasonic single din unit with pop-out-and-up touch screen. Again screen clarity and nav accuracy were extremely good.

I use TomTom on my PDA.

I can really recommend it as a portable GPS device. It is also very flexible, as I currently have all of the fixed speed/opps sorry safety cameras located on it(which can be downloaded free to update the database), and also the full postcode, 3rd party application, is really very good.

Ofcourse you have the price of the PDA to consider, but as my company gave me one free, that was not a concern for me[:D]

Graham,

The postode software is freeware and can be found - www.digitools.co.uk

The speedcamera software is found at - www.oabsoftware.nl

Advantages of the PDA are that it can be moved between different cars etc, points of intetest are available online for almost anything you can think of, and it can also be used as a PDA [^][^]

tomtom Go or tomtom for PDA brilliant - thoroughly recommended - also seems to rate very highly in most reviews. Very nice interface and well supported software extras. Cheapest price for tomtom Go about ?420 on Amazon, and best thing is you can take it out of the car and walk around with it.

I'm gonna go down the retro fitted MFD2 route as well. I really liked the layout of the dash when the initial pictures came out. Was a nice suprise to hear it could be had for a reasonable price and a bit of elbow grease [;)]

Aye a group buy would definitely be a good idea [:)] The Satnav thread in the ICE forum a while back had quite a few people interested in a MFD unit for their Mk5.

That reminds me, now that I'm back, I need to have a hunt around for a Phatnoise MP3 jukebox supplier for that group buy.
