I've got a pretty dodgy sense of direction and my map-reading skills are about as useful as a bat without sonar.Every once in a while there is a sale available on certain navigator models bought when such an important bonus was offered.If we have owned such a navigator for a long time the maps become old and cannot be used efficiently.Not having an updated map database, a Tom Tom navigator with old maps becomes useless and may have a lot of errors.Of course we can also update the maps by accessing the official Tom Tom website, and then download Tom Tom Home app in your Pc which will recognize the data on your navigator and will offer you the latest maps available.You connect your sat-nav to your PC or Mac using the USB cable that came in the box.

If you have lost your USB cable you can get a replacement. Within Garmin Express, selecting 'Install All' under the 'Updates' tab is the safest option.

Even with several years of updating various models of Garmin sat-navs, I have found the experience torturous at times.

You buy a micro/SD card preloaded with the Ireland/UK maps, you insert it into the side of your device and off you go.

There is three different ways you can approach this and a myriad of companies with suitable product.

Its important to note that any vehicle can be retrofitted with a GPS no matter what age, make or model.

In my opinion Sat Nav is the greatest motoring innovation since the steering wheel.
