"Turn left in 300 yards" it says, the bossy little so and so. We may curse their sorry souls as they order us around town, but we'd literally be lost without them.
Nowadays having a sat nav is so commonplace, they've changed the driving test to include taking instructions from a sat nav. Far safer than unfolding a giant map on your steering wheel, we'll give you that. The Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) have said over half of all car drivers now use a sat nav, and with around 30 million cars on the road, that adds up to a lot of expensive electronic equipment helping to get us to get from A to B.
A sat nav is portable (we're stating the obvious here we know), so you're more likely take it away with you, both in the UK or abroad, than some of your other gadgets. Generally this increases the risk of loss, theft and damage, hence it does make good sense to get it insured. For many people the sat nav is one of those devices that's worth adding to a multi-gadget policy because they don't consider it is worth covering individually.
You may be covered on your car insurance for theft of your sat nav, but what if you leave it in your hire car when you take it back to the airport? It happens to the best of us. A sat nav insurance policy will cover the cost of replacing your device in these situations, as well as if you lose it, damage it accidentally, or it suffers mechanical breakdown or liquid damage.Try Us Out

While you may get 12 months of cover under a manufacturer's warranty - which covers you for mechanical breakdowns - you won't be covered during those 12 months for accidental damage, liquid damage or theft. Even extended warranties generally don't cover these events.See all FAQs
