Looking at getting a new satnav shortly but really have a few requirements if possible, so can anyone here answer some questions or point me to a forum, group or page that will have the answers?
Ideally, I would like, if possible.
1/ A function to return by EXACTLY the same route, very often they send you down different roads on the return journey, thereby missing something that you wanted to stop at on the way back.
2/ One that accepts "What 3 words", so will direct me to a more accurate location.
3/ A unit that is programmable for vehicle dimensions/weight.
4/ A largish screen.

    You mean on to a computer or tablet etc? Or can the satnav unit record itself, then just follow that route back?

    You can plan the route with your computer or download the Mydrive app on your tablet or phone.

    You can also plan a route on your GPS and add stops to your route to force it to go to a location you want.

    I don't use my phone on internet and no access to tablet or computer at work. Adding stops is an idea but it would mean stopping on route to physically enter them and that's very often not possible.

    You plan your route with a stop before you leave.

    If at work when I find I have to go I have no facilities to plan the route. Phone call comes in and I very often just go.

    Is your Mobilphone just a basic device (Phone calls only) or is capable of downloading and installing Apps and connecting to the App over Bluetooth ???

    Well, I have the what 3 words app on it but that's about the extent of my technical knowledge. And it has very little data allowance because it's necessary for me as I don't use the internet on it.
