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 Because the map is a little out of date, there have been one or two occasions that it has proved to be unreliable.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.
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.
Summary: just brought this one. used it first time trip to london. found it to be fairly accurate.speed camera alert is good.not 100% accurate has to be said. some cameras must have been installed since dec 2007(date of latest update on binatone wesite). on product discreption it says 'comes with preintalled safety camra data' this was not true in my case as i have had to download from their website(free).further update will cost extra, i have been informed.
Summary: I must admit that when I bought this I was a little sceptical about whether it would work successfully or not given that it was not a well known make (in the field of satnavs anyway) and it was the cheapest I could find. But on the budget I had it was the only one I could afford and I was also encouraged by the reviews I had read.
