    I've heard recommendations not to put Home in on your satnav. The thief has your car and doorkeys and the they know where you live! I've just got J5 M5 in mine. I can find my own way from there.

    Living in the countryside my Garmins have always taken me down some farm tracks instead of near parallel A roads. I've been down the sketchiest (off) roads. Thanks to Garmin.
