Teutonic tour guide Navigon’s new sat-nav is keen to watch your back, with country specific info to help you avoid a run in with local bobby.Pre-loaded onto the 2GB card are maps for 37 European countries, along with a digital police escort to make sure you don’t inadvertently stray out of line with the law.Pop over the Pyrenees from France into Spain and the 4.3in widescreen will alert you, conscientious motorist, of the local speed limits, general traffic rules and even the maximum alcohol limit. Not that you’ll have a drink if you’re driving of course, but it’s always useful to know.The touchscreen Navigon also has an 'economic route' function, which gives users access to a taxi driver's brain in a box – metaphorically, of course. Nature lovers meanwhile will love the scenic route function, and its Gatso-detecting technology is ideal for those who treat the A1 like the Autobahn.The TS 7000T runs MobileNavigator 6 software with TMC traffic warnings, lane assistant and now familiar point-of-interest technology, allowing TS 7000T users to view nearby coffee houses, petrol stations, hotels and pubs. Oi! What did we just say about drinking?
