You could always get a refurb tom-tom from HP iPAQ PDA | TomTom GO | TomTom ONE | GPS Sat Nav | Palm Smartphone | Total PDA
Keeps the price within your budget and they come with 12 months warranty!

Theres a forum which may be of interest to you. Ive used it for downloading (chargeable) the camera database to my Garmin.

I'll take a look thanks. Can you update the maps to include eurpoe on all models for an extra fee or do you have to buy a europe version?

If you are looking for a budget satnav you can put TomTom maps onto Navigo satnavs (v cheap). Look at thepctailor.com for instructions

Sorry not sure about that. Ive had mine about 3 years now and havent updated the maps yet which causes the unit to have a hissy fit when you travel on a new stretch of road.

Thats the biggest problem I face - I can't for the life of me work out how to remove the radio to get behind it the dash and radio seem to be one sealed unit (I know they are not, but cant find an easy way to remove the radio).

..Tom Tom is obviously a good choice.
From The Times this weekend:

Travel, food, chauffeurs - quangocrats are at it too
...Stephen Crowne, chief executive of Becta, a quango that promotes the use of technology in education, has made £30,000 of expense claims, including £388 for a TomTom satellite navigation system for his car...

I have tended to buy Tom Tom in the past but have heard good things about Garmin, I am tempted to purchase the Garmin 265t, can anyone recommend this model?

I've got one of these. Much much easier.
Oh and I also use road signs.

I'm about to replace my RAC, after it broke for the second time in 3 months! Considering either the Nuvi215/250 or a TomTom since these are clearly the best option, not sure I can stretch the extra money though if the Garmin ones are acceptable.
Whatever you get, check how you connect to it to update it - my RAC one is running Windows Portable or whatever it is called and therefore is only compatible with XP, meaning I can't update it from Vista or Win7!
