Who needs a standalone sat-nav when you have half the hardware you need sat right there in your hand – assuming that's a PDA or smartphone you're holding.

Yes, just add a Bluetooth GPS to Destinator's latest offering and you're in sat-nav business, friend.

Now in its seventh incarnation it adds a new easy-as-pie interface, slicker mapping, better POI searching and text-to-speech for reading out road names.

Also going into the pot as part of the pricier Traffic SAM option is subs-free use of RAC's jam-busting Trafficmaster TMC info. Of course, for that you'll need a TMC receiver so look for a dual GPS TMC receiver like the GNS 5843. Sorted.
