Bike SatNav - Which one is best ?

Hi,

Buying a SatNav for a eurotrip and the more i look on Amazon the more confused i get so many negative reviews for Garmin and TomTom

Im interested in either a TomTom Rider v5 or something like a Garmin Zumo390 although apparently a Zumo400 is out this month...

Opinions and advice would be great, Thx

Use a smart phone? Buy a sim card and use Google Maps.

Or look into OpenStreetMaps for free offline navigation.

Google Maps on any Android device. It's free and the turn-by-turn/graphics are better than any in-car nav I've owned.

Yup. GPS on phone def works outside of coverage area. You wouldn't be able to search for an address though.
