General Comments
If you want a Sat Nav and don't want to pay an arm and a leg this Garmin Streetpilot i3 is ideal. It is dead easy to use, usually gets you to your destination with no problems, though it has confused me with odd directions once!



I have had speed trap warnings downloaded on mine, it warns as you approach a camera, then warns you again if you are going over the limit. Very useful!



The instructions are clearly spoken in your chosen language, the map is small but easily visible in day or night mode. The display can be changed according to your own preference and you can zoom in or out.



This Garmin Streetpilot i3 has helped me out quite a few times when I haven't been sure how to get to my destination. I am never without it now!

Can you use UK postcodes to find a location?
<br/>Is secondary information, such as the names of side streets displayed alongside the road you are driving along displayed?
<br/>And are maps of western Europe (e.g. France, Germany) included?
<br/>Did you get a discount off the RRP for the Garmin Streetpilot i3 sat nav system?

How do you add speed camera locations - where do you get them from? And how can you set up the unit to warn you when you're approaching a speed camera and to tell you if you're exceeding the speed limit?
<br/>
<br/>I've only recently purchased this unit so I'm still realising its potential.

I have had my Garmin Streetpilot i3 for nearly a year. It was on offer at Somerfield when I bought it, so I paid around £120 I think!
<br/>
<br>Yes, you can put in UK postcodes, and yes it shows names of side streets.
<br/>It shows Europe too, but I have had no reason to use it for any Country other than the UK, so I can't tell you anything about that one, sorry!
<br/>
<br>I'm not very technically minded, so if I can use it easily, anyone can!
<br/>
<br>My son paid over £400 for a TomTom around the same time as I bought mine. As far as I am concerned, the end result is the same, but I guess the TomTom does a little more?!
