A feature-packed dedicated sat nav at a good price

This is a brilliant sat nav and well worthy of the Which? 2nd top Best Buy. Which? discribe this as a mid range sat nav but on box/packaging it is described as ADVANCED SERIES and it certainly is! Comparing to the 3598 which was top Best Buy I can't...
