Mio Navman V505 TV
Not only will the Mio Navman V505 TV stop Santa getting lost this Christmas Eve, it also provides the perfect solution for those TV timing clashes – when mum and dad want to watch the Queen’s speech, and the kids want to chill in front of whatever classic afternoon film makes the listings this year.

If you are faced with travelling form house to house this year to keep the extended family happy, you are guaranteed the smoothest journey possible and some rest bite when you arrive at your destination. If you are spending the day catering for the 5000, pop the festive Christmas shows on in the kitchen – just put the turkey in the oven and put your feet up.
