Default Sat Nav in Dubai

Hi All,

Having been in Dubai a couple of times in recent months, I probably know the answer to this question already but here goes anyway:

Is it worthwhile having Sat Nav in Dubai and if so what is the best system to get?

Cheers.

Hi Elphaba,

I tried this using Sat Nav and satellite navigation as key search words but could not find anything. Maybe I am doing something wrong ??

Not really. The roads change as regularly as ever. I have never bothered with it & wouldn't recommend it.

The navigation that came in both our vehicles is quite good. We have never had any problems using it to get to our desired locations. When you get to a road that they have closed or changed direction of it whatever, it just finds a new route. I really dont see why people knock it so much. I couldnt live without it.

We have a garmin 276C mainly for offroad purposes, however when I visit Dubai (I live in Al Ain), I always keep it on - as an earlier poster said, even if the roads have changed, it will recalculate and you will get there!
