  • Excerpt: If you can�t beat�em, join�em. Garmin faces more competition than ever from satnav apps on smartphones, so it�s carved out a beast of a GPS that looks just like one too, with a gorgeous five-inch display, live traffic info and free map updates for life. Will it get you where you need to go though? We enlisted Janet Street-Porter to find out: see what she made of it in the clip above.

  • Pros: Magnetic mount. Glass capacitive display supports multi-touch. Improved voice prompts.
  • Cons: Expensive. Screen shows reflections in sunlight. Traffic and exact location aren't always accurate enough.

En klar vinder

11 June 2013
  • Excerpt: I brug bliver man da heller ikke skuffet. Nüvi 3597 har den nyeste software, der sørger for, at du bliver guidet uden om alle køer, når det er muligt. Fint nok – det får man også i andre topprodukter. Det er måden, den gør det på. Du får flotte splitskærme, så du kan se vejledningen i den ene side og trafikskilte i den anden, så du aldrig er i tvivl om, hvilken afkørsel du skal tage. Er der flere afkørsler tæt op ad hinanden, er det jo ofte, man kan blive i tvivl.
