Read on to see why I purchased a Garmin GPS and how I learned to switch the maps on my Garmin Nuvi GPS.
Printing my driving directions from the internet was always very easy and more than enough for me…until recently.
Depending on which figures you believe, up to 15 percent of the UK’s roads change each year.
That means your satnav’s maps will become less accurate as time goes on.
We’ve run with more than 20 GPS running watches over the past three years, and we’ve found that the Garmin Forerunner 230 is the best for both beginners and experienced runners.
It carries on the accuracy, long battery life, and light profile of our previous Garmin pick (the Forerunner 220) but has a larger screen with more readable information, enabling quick-glance updates while running.
We’re in the midst of testing for an update to this guide, and we’ll let you know what we think of the vívoactive HR.
In October, Garmin introduced a trio of new running specific GPS watches, the Forerunner 230, 235, and 630 that replace our current picks.

When traveling to foreign countries, having a GPS system is definitely better than printing directions or using your cell phone…simply because you still can’t rely on finding a good and affordable Internet connection when travelling inyernationally. The Garmin Nuvi made my life so much easier while in Europe.Bear in mind that updates can be expensive – costing almost as much as you paid for the satnav in the first place - and it might be worth putting the money towards a new, better-featured satnav which will come with the latest maps.
(Plus, new satnavs almost universally have a 90-day ‘latest map guarantee’ which means that if a new version is released within three months of purchasing, you are entitled to download it and update your device for free.) There are two main ways to update maps on a satnav.New roads and housing estates are built, existing roads can be changed from two-way to one-way streets or pedestrianised and new junctions and roundabouts are added.
