Summary: Never having used a sat-nav unit before, I did not want anything elaborate. The reviews of the Binatone Carrerra x350 seemed very encouraging so I ordered one - but what a disappointment. After charging it, the first thing I tried was putting in my own postcode, which has seven digits.
U turns on the motorway followed by abandoning the driver.

Summary: I had this product as an early gift for Christmas. Despite initial promise in my local area it placed me in quite a bit of trouble with my partner while travelling down to Padstow from the Midlands.
Summary: I bought this sat nav as a cheaper alternative to Tom tom. To begin with I was happy with it but after only a week it would frequently crash when trying to enter a post code, take a long time to pick up the GPS signal, and even though I had told it to take me on motorways it still tried to make me...
Summary: Budget price and budget performance. No problem receiving a signal, but often slow to update progress on route. Late with voice commands: on several occasions I had passed the turning before the instruction to turn was issued.
Summary: I bought this for Christmas. It works fine has no problem finding satellites but the mapping is not very up to date. For example a local junction where the right turn was prohibited over 20 years ago, you guessed it the satnav tells you to turn right.
Excerpt: Hab das Binatone Carrera 350x D/A/CH zum Geburtstag bekommen und hab mich über das Geschenk anfangs sehr gefreut. Anfangs...! Meine Erfahrung: Halterung im Auto angebracht (hält sehr gut - Kälte/Wärme) Navi im Auto angeschlossen, Ladekabel ran und los gehts.
Pros: Einfache Bedienung, schnelle Strecken - Ladezeit, gut verarbeitet
