rent a satnav for £9.99 for two weeks

Just to let you know, esellgps (also known as satnaveasy) rent them as well as selling them.

I have nothing to do with the company, except buying a satnav from them. With my poor internet connection they, for no charge downloaded and installed all the latest maps and radar traps for me.
They also replaced a unit after warranty date and even p[aid the postage to France without a quibble.

The company are no longer renting units to motorcyclists. The reason given that not all the equipment was being returned at the end of the rental period.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
