Just in case someone's not aware, don't put your full trust in these devices. They often miss junctions out in the sticks. I know of a recent write off when this was spotted too late in the dark and I've had several instances showing straight on through junctions with no warning of stop turn etc.

Dave, I've done just that! A few years ago in a hurry and relying on the satnav I shot over a brow of a hill following the sat navs quide of showing a bend, only to discover to my horror that it was a T junction onto another road! shocked2 The Give Way sign was obscured with leaves so there was no warning. Emergency stop in the middle of the road with lots of black tyre marks and luckily no traffic to hit!

It taught me a very valuable lesson!
