Customer Question
Hello. At last I...

Hello. At last I have a contact with you. Ha ha. As a Driving Instructor I would like to know which model Sat Nav the Driving Examiners use. More details would be welcome. All I know is that theirs allow you to record your own route which lasts for the mandatory 20 minutes. Thank you. :-)

Technician's Assistant: Who makes your GPS?

Tomtom

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your TomTom?

I think the one I have is brill but it is for the average motorist. The one I am after is the one that the examiners use so I can copy the way they plan their route.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the GPS Expert to know before I connect you?

Just the model number of the one that the Examiners use so I can purchase the same to help me with my profession.
