Auto Express February 2008: Made by what used to be Origin, the Pogo Drive gave perfect speed trap performance. Updates are free for six months, then £50 a year. POIs weren't so great, though with some headings in German. Irritatingly, the stylus is essential for entering data. The spoken instructions were clear, but the display is hampered by deep bands running across the screen.
