Magellan Meastro 4245 maps UK, Europe and skinny lattes

New sat-navs are coming thick and fast. Latest to join the grid in the navigation grand prix is Magellan's new Maestro 4200 series which selfishly boasts not one but two unique selling points.

Not only is it the thinnest navigator in town (a mere 17.8mm) but its top of the range 4245 gets ‘voice command and control’ for barking orders as you drive. Its repertoire is limited to the likes of  ‘get coffee’ or the rather terse ‘go home’ – both familiar phrases to our resident workie.

The 4.3in widescreen beauty also packs Europe-wide maps, Bluetooth handsfree and a lifetime traffic subscription for jam-free journeying.

Moving down the pecking order, the 4215 loses voice command and traffic, while the budget 4200 also ditches Bluetooth and keeps itself away from those crazy left-hand drive motors on the continent with UK-only mapping.
