Garmin DriveAssist 50LMT-D navigation - £250

While expensive for a sat-nav, this Garmin features a built-in dash camera, lifetime map updates, UK traffic alerts and mapping for the whole of Europe, plus it can be paired to a mobile phone and used as a hands-free system – so it’s more than just a means of getting around.

What’s more, the built in dash camera has extra safety functionality, with lane departure alerts and a safe distance indicator to help out when driving in a queue. Sure, this won’t be worth buying if you already have a good dash cam or sat-nav, but if you need both it’s a great idea.
