£20 car sat nav at Asda
« on: October 28, 2009, 03:13:36 pm »
My local Asda (Isle of Dogs) is knocking these out for £20, so I got one.

Looks just as capable as the sat nav I currently use, but is 10 times cheaper...

May well be hackable.
 
I got an similar bit of kit a year ago for £40 called a Navigo.  Found a great site with files and instructions to hack it to run as a Garmin, with much superior software  ;)

I bought my daughter a MyGuide satnav a couple of years ago. Older model than that £20 one, but it's been excellent.

they don't normally come with a mains charger tho'.

Apparently they are hackable. We've never felt the need.

Ebuyer still sells them for £50 and the reviews pages usually has useful hacking tips.
If it ain't broke, fix it 'til it is...

I never felt the need for a satnav until they became so cheap  ;)

If it is the same as the navigo then the hacking is worthwhile.  The garmin's maps are nicer (IMO) and they have some very useful features such as 7 digit postcode navigation.
