Our Comment


Unless you specifically want a sat-nav with lifetime traffic information, we recommend LM(Lifetime maps) devices. The reason for this is that in Ireland traffic information, while reasonably good in the greater Dublin region and main cities, is generally not available elsewhere.  If you intend to use your sat-nav primarily abroad and in the UK then LMT devices, with lifetime maps and traffic are worth considering.
