Vexia econav 480 review


We first saw the econav five months ago, but it's only now that we've been able to get a unit to test properly. Vexia is a Spanish company, and its only product is the econav, a standalone satnav which - apart from getting you from A to B safely - aims...

Vexia econav 480 satnav review


Vexia is the latest satnav manufacturer to embrace the current eco friendly trend by releasing a product which combines navigation and additional eco driving aids to save you money. Vexia claims that up to 30% of co2 emissions can be cut by using their...
