/ BLOG / Garmin i3

Its time to add my 2 pence to the whole GPS / SatNav argument. Friday I went and got myself the tidy little Garmin i3. Unpacking it at work and throwing in a couple of batteries I was only disappointed; I couldnt get a signal. I left it a while then fitted it yesterday, mid way home it suddenly started working! After looking up towards the heavens themselves, I notice that what must have been the extremely heavy cloud had left; since then I’ve only lost signal once, between 2 high buildings and that was in the middle of Bristol.

For about £130 from Halfords you really can’t go wrong with this device. It may not have a built in battery, and it does eat the AA’s quite quickly, but I wouldn’t expect you to use this outside of the car due to its rather cubiod and pocket-unfriendly nature.
