Whilst all sat navs achieve one thing – getting you from A to B, many of them offer additional services such as traffic updates and hands free calling. Not only that, but you can also pay a bit extra for ease of use. Large multi-touch screens will certainly make life a bit easier and make things easy on the eyes.
