The Garmin nuvi 1240 isn't perfect. However, unlike other entry-level Garmins we've tested in the past, such as the nuvi 215 the 1240 is keenly priced considering the features available. It includes full maps of Western Europe, yet comes in at just £110, making it distinctly cheaper than the equivalent TomToms, and only slightly more expensive than Navigon's 1210. With the excellent free address and POI searching, clear mapping, and support for City Explorer, the nuvi 1240 makes a great budget choice, particularly if you're looking for a cheap companion for European holiday travels.
