It was a 4 year old TomTom Rider v2... I think it failed due to a combination of hardening rubber seals and an indescribably wet day on the motorway. However I was rather annoyed since it was situated behind the windscreen and therefore didn't have direct spray on it... I would have expected the rubber seals to last more than 4 years this price point... I've since replaced it with the BMW Navigator IV (I was going to get the Garmin zumo 660 but BMW sent me an offer for 0% interest accessories loan and if they're just going to lend me money for free who am I to refuse!)
