TomTom GO LIVE 1000 mount

Outsmart the jams with the new TomTom GO LIVE 1000 - the best sat nav device yet.  A super-fast computer processor uses traffic data collected from millions of users to calculate accurate arrival times, with live data updated every three minutes.  New maps cover more roads across 45 European countries, whilst speed camera alerts help you avoid fines.  Find local shops with Google Search and check five day weather forecasts.  There's also a responsive touch screen and magnetic mount for easy docking on your windscreen.  Priced £279.99 from Halfords including a year's free HD Traffic.

The entry-level TomTom Start 2 sat nav is really easy to use, even if you're 'tech averse'.  No installation is required - just 'plug and go', with all the main menu items on one screen.  Tap in the destination and it plans the fastest route, or you can go via thousands of pre-installed places like stations and cash dispensers.  It tells you when you'll arrive, warns you if you're speeding and alerts you to safety cameras.  The "help" feature has the phone numbers and directions for the nearest emergency services.  Available in six cool colours, it's slim enough to fit into your pocket.  The TomTom Start 2 is £99.99 with UK/Ireland maps from Amazon.
