Summary: This product is really good value for money and is quick to recalculate and point you to the right track until, you get to your destination. I do not have any hesitation at all in recommending this product to my friends and family.
Excerpt: 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.
Summary: Had one of these satnavs since Nov 2007. Great little satnav for the price and I've noticed that the price is still falling. Binatone first promised map updates for early 2008. This was then put back to late 2008 but we're still waiting. Because the map is a little out of date, there have been one or two occasions that it has proved to be unreliable.
Excerpt: 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.
Summary: The unit gives clear instructions in good time the display itself is clear. I myself have found it searches for postcodes without any problems, searches for places can be a little less effective as smaller towns and villages are not on its database. Once you have got the unit to find your general destination it is very capable of calculating more precisely for individual roads or streets.
Summary: If you expect this little device to drive the car for you whilst you sit back with your feet up ... then you are looking at the wrong product! However if you use this device as an additional aid whilst driving and use your common sense as well you will find this Sat Nav hard to beat at this price. It can quickly re-route you to get you back on track and provides you with all of the information you will need to get you from A to B.
Excerpt: My wife would be the first to admit that her map reading skills leave a lot to be desired and as she cannot link up with the global positioning satellites (GPS) encircling planet Earth then I decided to trade her in for something that could. Despite my best efforts with Amazon, and a final offer of two camels, they finally accepted Pounds Sterling, and last November I became the proud owner of the Binatone Carrera X350 for £79.99.
Summary: I bought this a couple of months ago when it was sub-£50. Have tried it out on short, local journeys as well as longer, unknown routes and I have to say I'm very impressed. The screen is very clear and easy to read. I like the fact that if you are zoomed out quite a distance, the system automatically zooms in when a change of route is imminent, e.g. exiting from roundabouts, turning on to different roads, so that there is no doubt as to which way you go.
