TomTom GO 730: portable GPS car navigation system

TomTom GO 730Halfords

今日、来週のコッツウォルズ旅行のために買った、ポータブル・カーナビTomTom GO 730が届いた。地図を読むのは得意な方だが、時に迷ってMと大げんかしたことが多々あるので、それを教訓に、今回の旅行前に買う事にした。オランダに本社を置くTom Tomは、ヨーロッパにおけるカーナビ市場のトップ企業である。イギリスのテクノロジー雑誌T3(オンライン)の評価を元に、評価が高く、コンパクトで音声操作のできるTomTomに決めた。そしてネットで値段・特典を比較、イギリスの車部品・アクセサリー、自転車販売会社の大手、Halfordsのオンラインストアで注文。Halfordsは、TomTomのカーナビに割引コードを使うと£30.00オフ、また2年間無料の地図の更新ができるクーポン+無料のケース付き(手違いでケースは今日届かなかったけれど)とお買い得だった。時間はかかるけれど、ネットで根気よく調べると、色々割引や特典が見つかるものですね。

We got a brand-new TomTom GO 730 Sat Nav for our trip to Cottswalds next week. Tom Tom is a Dutch manufacturer of automotive navigation systems and is the leading manufacturer of navigation systems in Europe. Although I believe that I am good at reading a map, but I got a lesson from previous trips, since we sometimes got  lost with the directions and thereforewe made lots of fights, so we decided to buy a sat nav. We also checked T3 (UK-based technology magazine which specialises in gadgets, gizmos, and other technology) online review, and chose Tom Tom, because of its ‘voice address input’ features and its compact size, and overall high reviews. Then we checked the price comparison sites, and bought it from Halfords online shop, a British leading retailer of car parts, car enhancements and bicycles. Halfords had a promotional code for TomTom sat nav for £30.00 off, and came with 2 years free map update service + free case (though it didn’t come today with the same delivery by their mistake). Although it is back-breaking and time consuming, the internet is great to look for information and discounts!
