The F20 is a simple, easy to use GPS. There's no fancy MP3 playback or bluetooth, this unit is straight forward and simple to use. In particular the nearest petrol and parking buttons on the side on the device are brilliant, simply press a button to flash up their locations on the 3.5 inch anti-reflective screen. It couldn't be easier, there's no menus to struggle with to get at them.
There's built in speed cameras too, enabled with a simple on / off setting. A years subscription to camera updates costs £33
