I've currently got an SPV M500 and I've been very happy with it.
I'm very interested in the Compact iii as I've been hankering after GPS for a while, and that seems like the perfect package, so I went it in to T-Mobile in Chester and asked if they had any to have a look at.
They did and the guy let me have a look before asking what I wanted the handset for. I said GPS, after a load of spiel he suggested getting the Vario, bundled with the Bluetooth GPS reciever, plus CoPilot Live (inc 12 months traffic updates) would be a better option.
I originally got excited thinking it was the Vario II he was offering but it was the original.
Now I'm in two minds. I've read some indifferent things about the Compact III, but the Vario isn't that much better than my current M500 save the slidey keyboard and WiFi.
Basically I wouldn't mind a quick few suggestions from you lot given your experiences with either device.
I am leaning towards the Compact III again, but any advice would be appreciated.
(Usual tactics, but if I go back today they're also giving me up to £40 worth of accesory)
