The last TomTom one European from Anttila in the Sello shopping center.
Got that for 380 Euros. Not bad I guess.

And I just discovered that I had to buy a few more things and ended up paying 404 Euros! That's a geeky number ;-)

Now let's see if I can know where I'm when I'm in the bus!

Thanks Lazyweb for the suggestions.

Man.. is it that expensive in Europe? I just bought one last night in the US for 300 bucks (which means $324 after goddamn sales taxes)

I have another one, the Mio c310X which is not that bad, knowing I got it for a hot $150 during Xmas sales. It's also hackable so you can use it as WinCE (yuck!) PDA. But sometimes it gives wacky directions.

It was originally for 310 + 22% VAT = 380

Well, I could've got the Scandinavian one and pay 30 Euros less but I decided to get the European one instead of saving them!

Congrats, any photos with you posing in the middle of Espoo trying to find your way home with the TomTom ?

The price is quiet OK, got mine for around 215GBP and refunded the VAT at the airport :P

But man it won't get you that much information when you're IN the bus, the antenna should be seeing at least 3 satellites to give you a 2D position.

But I believe you've got better satellite coverage where you are since you're not always surrounded with monolithic absurd looking buildings.

Enjoy the experience.

The price is OK, it's not much.
