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 Because the map is a little out of date, there have been one or two occasions that it has proved to be unreliable.
Summary: This is an excellent low priced Sat Nav. It did have a few errors when I first switched it on though. For starters it told me my location was 2 streets away, nowhere near where I actually was. And on the first usage it kept telling me to take the 4th exit at a roundabout no matter which exit I approached it from. Since that its been fine and very useful. Nice and easy to use with clear instructions. Works just as well as my friends Navman.
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.
