I have a cheap Chinese Sat Nav which routes can be loaded on to with a program called Tyre and updated with road changes and speed cameras using a program found on the web which was introduced to me by a forum member.

I also have an android based phone which I use with Google maps with live traffic updates ..... I didn't realise how good it was until Sunday when I was travelling down the A1 to London from Yorkshire and I saw the gantry signs saying the A1 was closed just past Peterborough .... I looked down at my phone and Google maps had already rerouted me.

Now both devices sit together in front of me on long trips.

2 waterproof cases costing a Fiver each and I'm a happy rider .... I can think of better things to spend £500 on.

I've got a Garmin 595LM and I would NEVER recommend it. For the money, its horribly over priced and under spec'd. I've'e bought a second battery as I thought the original was faulty (it wasn't), just won't last five mins off the bike. The display is terrible - I didn't realise how bad until my mate showed me his BMW Navigater. The difference is well.......22inch B&W tv compared to 42 in LED Flat screen!!!
I've'e been saying for ages, that my next bike will just have a phone holder, now data roaming charges are gone, I'll stick with my iPhone on a holder.
Sorry to be so negative, but got to speak as I find, no experience of TomTom.

Thank you very much for all the replies!

OEM parts are £50-60 but as you all  said itís worth the extra and not worry although as I watched more tutorials how to do it I realised I might going to struggle without the right tools.

The £120 quote was me dropping the bike off and they do all the work. I hope they meant to change both forks but I will confirm that today and I might try to get more quotes in from different places .

OEM or Japanese made NOK, be wary of purchasing through ebay as lots of fakes about.

Was the £120 quote with you taking the forks off the bike? as I'd expect to pay no more than £60 /£80 for both forks.
