    “I have had the Garmin StreetPilot III satellite...”

    I have had the Garmin StreetPilot III satellite navigation system for almost 2 years now.

    My gripe is that it that garmin rips you off for the map updates. They ship you the map updates for free but in order to use the map you must 'unlock' it for $150.

    I had a StreetPilot III for about 5 months, and found it frustrating at times because the maps were out of date. For instance leaving Manchester Airport on the M60 towards the M62, you are told to "exit left" at one stage, this is presumably because the next section of the M60 had not been built when the Garmin was programmed! And why does it say "at next junction keep right", when all the instruction means is "keep straight on". At every trip over the M1/M62 junction it told me that I was "off route, recalculating", for some unknown reason. I sold it on E-Bay.

    Garmin is one of the best GPS systems. It is a pity, as you stated that for a reasonable price annual payment you could get all year updates for all roads. Cheaper to buy another GPS. Perhaps this is the hidden agenda.
