Default Sat Nav

We would like to buy a Satellite Navigation system. Should we buy it in the UK or in NZ? Either way can anyone recommend a user friendly system that ideally could be used for walking, cycling and in the car!

If not all three just the car would be good.

mazi is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Re: Sat Nav

I wouldn't bother getting one - a) it takes away all the fun, b) it interrupts your sounds and c) there is only one way to get anywhere in NZ - THE (one) road
