Binatone Carrera X350: Not particularly unimpressive or impressive
29 May 2010
Summary: I saw this priced at around £59.99 in a major supermarket and being then in-experienced in sat-nav I thought it would be a sufficient place to start, I did not want to splash out on state-of the-art navigation as it just was not essential for me. It works well enough. The settings are clear and easy to read with simple menu options such as the usual "go home" and "most recent destinations" quickly bringing up a short list of the last few entries which can be really...
Summary: I can't help but think I am using a completely different sat nav as my experience of this machine is completely different! If you actually intend to find where you are going avoid this! Whilst it is compact and easy to set up, when it comes to actually navigating you anywhere you have had it.
Pros: It is cheap (for a reason)
Cons: It directs you to totally inappropriate places
Summary: i bought a binatone carrera A350 and when i tried to start the safety cam 6 month free trial i was informed i would have to go to binatonecarrera.com to register the device. After searching various sites i could not find any where to register the device. Finally i gave in and decided to contact binatone through the number given in the device user manual.
Summary: I bought this sat nav for £50, which I thought was great. It includes UK and Ireland maps and speed (safety) camera locations, Post code and co-ordinate search; favourites, route watch, 2d and 3d modes, day and night modes, and multi languages. At first I couldn't understand this touch screen sat nav, as things just didn't seam to be in the right place, altho now I have gotten use to it.
Binatone Carrera X350: Useful, if it has maps for your part of town
8 June 2009
Summary: I consider myself fortunate, we won this sat nav at my partners works' christmas party last year in a free raffle for employees. If I had paid money for it I think I would have been disappointed. At first, we were over the moon, sat nav is not something we'd consider buying, but could be a useful tool as we go away camping many times a year to new places.
Summary: Budget sat navs make buying the more expensive brands seem more and more pointless these days. The basic navman and tom tom models can be purchased for around £100, but if you don't want to spend even that, then this is a good buy. All the basic bits of information are listed at the bottom (like a tom tom style) and the mapping is adequate.
