  1. I used to have a Sat Nav but it was really unreliable (I’m talking taking you through fields or towards a river lol. So I rolled back to a paper map which my OH thinks is HILARIOUS!

    I would love to win the Sat Nav because a road trip with me involves getting lost at least once if not twice lol.

  2. I’d love a SatNav so I can find out where I am and maybe I’ll get somewhere in life.

  3. I’d like to win the sat nav cause it beats using maps for long trips and the first place i’d go g go is TX (I live in CA) to visit my grandparents, aunts & cousins!

  4. I want the sat nav because I’m looking for direction (seriously, I have no natural sense of it at all!). The first place I would probably try to go is Halfords so I could ask them to show me how to use it!

  5. I’d like a satnav because the last time I went on a trip without one, I accidentally found myself in Salinas, California, famed hometown of John Steinbeck. I then spent the next several hours contemplating the real meaning of “Grapes of Wrath” as I wandered aimlessly along a series of dirt roads which took me deeper and deeper into fields that may or may not have been where George shot Lenny. Eventually, through the use of a makeshift sextant cobbled together from the remains of a McDonald’s coffee cup lid and an old pair of sunglasses, I located a freeway, narrowly escaping the dust bowl with my life. If I had a satnav, such experiences might be avoided.

  6. I want a sat nav, so i can take a road trip through europe onto a ferry and explore my home land Egypt! go down past the nile – working my way through my ancient mother land! Wonder if it has the directions to the rest of King tuts treasure hmmm… Oh and i guess it will come in use when im here in the UK!

  7. I want a sat nav as I have a terrible sense of direction! I used to work as a estate agent and had to drive my brand new company car from Acton to Camden. The drive should of took 45mins max down the A40 but 4 hours later… and many turns, round about and pull overs I ended up in… HEATHROW.

    I only worked as a estate agent for 4 months, and quit on the basis that I despite I was great my job I couldn’t read maps so spent more hours driving aimlessly lost in St Johns Wood and Central London.

  8. I would like to win the sat nav as I am travelling across Africa for charity and don’t fancy getting lost in the African wilderness and being eaten by a lion.

  9. I would love to win this sat nav as we are moving soon and I will be negotiating country roads and getting lost, with this the world would be my lobster!

  10. I would like to win the sat nav as I love gadgets. My mobile phone gives me sat nav but unfortunately it runs the battery down way too fast which makes it unusable! Living in the country means I use the back roads a lot and being lost at midnight [trying to get to a function which started at 8pm!] in fog, down roads which don’t seem to have any names, is not fun!! Gadgets for the win!
