Navigation systems are no longer a luxury or merely the reserve of international lorry drivers. They are now available in all price classes and promise to bring all drivers safely and quickly to their desired destination. Whether fixed in the car, kept in a holder, used on mobile phone software or even in combination with a Pocket PC, the satellite supported navigation system leads you safely through the roads of England and Europe in the shortest or fastest way possible. Navigation system screens are especially practical, with a 2D or even a 3D display of your current location and a red line marking your route. In addition the driver receives spoken instructions in a gentle female voice that means there is no need to take his or her eyes off the road. A large part of the systems is expandable with additional material e.g. internet downloads and updated maps.
