Don't try and drive anywhere in Yorkshire in a 5-series. You may end up on the edge of a cliff.
I don't have a sat-nav, but I used a widescreen Garmin nuvi in the States (the one that Avis hire out at a lucrative rate) and found it to be very good. The larger screen size compared to the budget TomTom models (not actually driven with one of those, but been in a car with a friend who was using it) is pretty nice, and the mapping is nice and clear. They rent out the models higher in the range, but the basic features (i.e. what I liked) are the same as one I saw for about £97 in Tesco yesterday.
There's my limited experience... all 1300 miles or so of it.
Have you ever felt like you could float into the sky / like the laws of physics simply don't apply?

I use sat navs all the time, and while I can't speak for the map accuracy in the UK, here, I found the Garmin Street Pilot 530C far more accurate and relaible than the Tom Tom XL One. The XL One couldn't track the main (and only) east-west highway through Northern Ontario, and I mean... The highway has only been there since God knows when.
Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.

Tom Tom seem to get great reviews from Stuff magazine (stuff.co.uk) and I have had a TomTom for a few years. Whilst I dislike all of the extra services they try and charge me for, its been pretty handy.
I was going to go for a Garmin Nuvi 765 (above your budget) as I like the look of them, and I think the lane assist function would be really useful.
