Has anyone used this system? For my new car I don't want an overt "gadgets everywhere" look in the cabin, and this is just a single button (although I'll probably get the touch screen as well and stick it in the glovebox).

This is UK-specific right? Seems bit like an aftermarket OnStar.

Yes, UK only currently.

I got a brand new unit on eBay for less than a third the usual retail price, so I'll report back how good it is (or not).

Unless it is much better than TomTom at complex junctions I would imagine the screen would be vital. Sometimes you really need to see a map of a junction as well as being told "bare/bear right".
