Satellite navigation used to be something you would only find in expensive cars, but now with the availability of portable Sat Nav systems, more and more people are taking advantage of these intelligent little machines.

If you haven’t got a Sat Nav system already then there are a number of reasons why you should invest in one.

  • Keep getting lost? -  Pretty straight forward really, but satellite navigation gives you clear directions to wherever you want to get to. Some even let you specify if you want the quickest route or the most scenic route! By getting you there in the shortest time it also means less harm to the environment and your wallet!
  • Speeding? -  Not that you should be speeding anyway…but this handy feature helps point out when you’re are approaching a speed camera and tells you what speed you are supposed to be going so that you are fully aware.

  • Hungry? - Satellite navigation can tell you where the nearest restaurants are! This is great when you are in a place you have never been before!
  • Running low on petrol? – Satellite navigation systems know where the nearest garages are and can direct you to the closest one so you don’t waste time (and the end of your petrol) trying to find one!
  • Hate being stuck in traffic? – Some satellite navigation systems can be fed information such as where there is congestion and can then suggest routes to avoid it.

Satellite Navigation systems can be hired along with your car with Avis. You can do this by simply ticking the GPS request box during booking or by giving us a call!
