Our Comment

Irish road safety cameras

Check out our nüvi 270 Deluxe Pack with Road Safety Cameras for Ireland

Verdict

Full detailed maps of Ireland, the UK, Europe and North America.

The GPS is a simple navigator - it does not come with Bluetooth®, a MP3 player or traffic information but you get detailed maps in a very neat package that will easily slip into your pocket.  The screen size is 3.5" diagonal and the integrated high sensitivity GPS receiver makes the nüvi 270 very portable.

Note that the GPS does not have an option to specify a vehicle type when calculating routes so it is not suitable for trucks and camper vans.

Recommendation

Whether you choose the standard pack or deluxe pack, the nüvi 270 is excellent value for money.

The single most important accessory is the Leather Carry Case as this is essential to protect the screen. If you can stretch to it we would highly recommend the AC Home Charger and the Portable Friction Mount along with the Deluxe pack.

Our experience is that the home charger is almost an essential accessory as often the charge from the in-car charger or USB cable is insufficient to keep the nüvi's internal lithium-ion battery fully charged or in tip-top condition.

The portable friction mount is great for detering would-be thieves of your sat nav as it does not leave any indication that the vehicle has a GPS system when the car is unattended.
