Saw this on clearance today at my local Officeworks in Midland, WA.

Retails was $169

Can't find it on OW website, presumably because it's on clearance.

Happy hunting

    For $50-60 you can get a prepaid Android with HD 5" IPS display.

    Except for the stupid no-touch mobile phone laws. I may have to mount an old Nexus 7 in the car.

      a proper GPS is much better than a smart phone map. GPS and finds a better road and saves more time and a better notice for which way to go. After you use a good GPS you will find the difference

        I stopped using a "proper GPS" years ago, when the online ones got better.
        I bought a Garmin/Navigon app, which worked better than Google when out of mobile coverage, but they stopped supporting it.

        5 years ago, that was true. Now, not so much. Combined with the hassle of hooking up and securing a dedicated GPS device, the fact that your phone can take traffic data into account, the low-quality touch screen and low-brightness display, I no longer recommend GPS devices.

        For TomTom, "lifetime maps" means "until they stop supporting your device", which for me was after 5 years. So false advertising.

          Now GPS can get the live traffic data as well. Google map navigate only tells you to turn left or right but doesn't tell you which lane to go for example 2 lanes can turn right. GPS can find a better trip and estimate time is more accurate. The main issue for GPS in Australia is GPS only can find address can find place name (like restaurant name).

        Was using a Garmin then switched to Waze a few years back, Garmin collecting dust. Was in Malaysia last week, car (2016 Mazda CX5) had TomTom, ran them together and found Waze had traffic changes up to date so didn't bother with TT which i'm guessing, needed updating.

      Any Law that stops idiots causing needless traffic and senseless fatalities because they cannot go 2 minutes without checking their socials is not stupid

        Any law?
        OK. Ban anyone who owns a mobile phone from driving. Cannot possibly be stupid by your poorly grasped logic.

        The law is over-reaching. And a serious problem does not justify useless ill-thought-out knee-jerk reactions.
        Nobody ran over a child because they checked the GPS route traffic while stopped at a red light.

          Your first post hinted at your intelligence and your second confirmed it.

          People using mobile phones while driving are as bad as drunk drivers and at the very least add travel time on already overcrowded roads. The amount of times I have missed a green light because the driver in front of me is checking their phone is way too much.

          I hope you are never adversely affected by this in a serious way but if you ever were I guarantee you will have a different perspective.

            Your posts shows deep emotion but little intelligence, sadly.
            You see the problem, but emotion clouds your logic. Anger and self-righteous indignation will not solve it.
