We already have a Tom Tom gps, and I am thinking about downloading the UK/Ireland map for about $60.
I've seen some threads where people say their gps works pretty well in Ireland, but what I want to know is, can you search by points of interest on the Tom Tom? (i.e. "Rock of Cashel" - would that come up?)
I've gotten used to Google Maps here in the states, where you can just search whatever you want, such as a restaurant, point of interest, etc., and the map will take you there. I also like how you can plan out an itinerary ahead of time online and then pull it up on your phone/ipad/device (this can't be done with TomTom). But I'm not confident of having enough cell signal (with a SIM) to use Google Maps all around Ireland. So, I'm debating bringing the tom tom.
I do have an OSI map as well but in looking at it, it doesn't have the level of detail that would make me comfortable.
I know I know, part of the fun is getting lost and asking for directions... but I am the type who might find it stressful nonetheless.
Any advice would be appreciated.
