    Smile Sat nav upgrade

    Hi I have a NG 95 Ttid XWD I need to have the sat nav upgraded but I have been quoted 300 pounds by local Saab garage, is this the going rate or do I buy a tom tom .Don't want to go down this route but it seems a little expensive to me

    Re: Sat nav upgrade

    Do what I did. I've got an old 3rd gen iPod Touch which I was hardly using and I downloaded a free program called NavFree from ITunes onto it. Then I purchased a TomTom cradle for £20 for it. I now use this for my SatNav. To be fair I've never had SatNav in the car as I prefer road maps but I was away this year and got a tad lost as there were some crazy changes onto different motorways for a stretch and ended up taking me an extra 2 hours to reach my destination. So decided I could do with something for these odd occasions. I tested it the other week while I was away and it had a couple of small glitches but in the main worked like a charm . Only downside is i'm stuck with the version of NavFree I have installed as my version of IOS doesn't support the latest version. But i'm happy enough with it and it does the job.

    I'm sure if you have a newer device you could get a cradle for it and be able to download the latest version. Or pay the £30 odd for the TomTom app which I felt wasn't worth it.

    hi Kevdo Thanks for that I have an android phone that has sat nav installed on it, but I really would like to use the sat nav in the car,to be honest it is working ok but 3 years out of date.Maybe keep the road map in the car just in case. I am not paying 300 quid for the upgrade.
