    So for the UK $529 + Shipping + VAT + Carrier fees for paying the VAT.

    DHL Stung me an additional 10 when they paid the Duty & VAT for me so the parcel would clear customs.
    Did you by any chance have it sent to your work address? I did, and they tried to ask for a 10 admin fee instead of the 1.25 for a private purchase.

    Phoned up and they said they'd raise a credit and re-invoice me for the correct amount.

    Of course i bought it unlocked but i feel privileged to use such a fast and accurate device! I can't really call it mobile...it's more of a gateway to me.
    You can just buy Sygic for Android, this is working for me with offline Maps.

    My sister sent mine to me here in Taiwan via Post Office. They have an express service similar to EMS. I received it within 4 days and did not pay a penny in taxes.

    I have the N1 now for over a week and I haven't seen any VAT bill. Any UK buyers that did get charged VAT?

    It can take a month, sometimes longer... don't get your hopes up.
