Route 66 Chicago 6000 GPS receiver review


Portable in-car satnav systems have come a long way in a short time. Budget models have shown particular improvement. Garmin's woeful Streetpilot, launched a couple of years back, would have forever put many off buying a budget model again. Today,...

Excellent screen, easy to use, good value, fast GPS location

Tempramental, weak battery life, pointless MP3 functionality, imprecise touchscreen

One of the better budget in-car GPS solutions

Route 66 Chicago 6000 vs. Medion GoPal PNA465


Almost identical on the outside, but then appearances are nothing when it comes to sat nav.

Though the Route 66 Chicago 6000 may be cheap, value is only relative to performance and in a competitive market there's little that stands out.

Route 66 Chicago 6000


Sat-nav systems have followed mobile phones in boosting functionality, improving graphical displays, increasing screen sizes and becoming thinner and lighter. The Route 66 Chicago 6000 is every bit as gorgeous as the more expensive TomTom Go 710

Fast and easy to use, Excellent touchscreen response, Free traffic updates

Display could be sharper, MP3 functionality largely a gimmick

A good-value sat-nav unit that performs well
