Is factor satnav any good?

I'm looking at getting a cooper sd and I was wonder if it's worth searching one out with Nav.

Is it as good as a tomtom and does it have any form of traffice warning/rerouting built in??

Overall, not a patch on TomTom, although the traffic warning is OK. And yes, I have experience of both - Nav in my old 2009 Dooper and again in my 2013 Dooper S. Owned several TomToms (910? and 740? - forget exact model numbers). Factory Nav is carp - or at least in Mini and 2005 Merc - IMHO.

I have a 2012 with factory sat nav. I can't answer about Tom Tom's but I can tell you it's way better than a garmin. I've also had factory vauxhall and Peugeot units and they wouldn't accept full postcodes which was pretty useless as you had to have the full address.
So for me it's the best one I've used.....so far
