excellent

  • Summary: Had one or two problems at first updating the maps but once completed it has been even more useful. Occasionally I have missed a turning because of the distance of an exit which seems to be measured to a roundabout off the major road.

Garmin Nuvi 1240 3.5" Sat Nav with UK and Western Europe Maps

Peter "Pokermid", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this for £60 a few years ago from Amazon. Good value and works fairly well. Probably needs upgraded software though, so I shouldn't be too critical. It hasn't let me down yet!

Garmin Nuvi 1240

Sarah, Amazon

  • Summary: First time purchasing a Sat Nav system. Very quick and easy plug and play and I was using it straight away. Clear Screen and voice. As mentioned by others, no usb cable included to update the maps, and the webpage step by step instructions to register the product insists you have one to continue after the first steps, so I couldnt register or update without ordering a cable..

works for me

Nomad in Caledonia, Amazon

  • Summary: Indeed, it's doesn't let you down...It has all the features of the previos models + the voice announces street names, which is really helpful especially when you're in unfamiliar area, e.g. abroad. The reason I didn't give 5 star is that when you drive out of underground parking/ or anywhere wth a limited/no reception it takes it at least 3-5 min to get a signal which is rather long, esepcailly if you're unfamiliar with the area and in a busy traffic...

A very valuable tool at an extremely reasonable price.

Colin Grey, Amazon
10 August 2011
  • Summary: I bought this satnav (the first I've ever had) 3 days before going to France for a fortnight's touring and it worked well from the moment it leapt out of the box. It saved many an argument and guided us across country on roads that were not marked on our European gazeteer. Not being experienced in sat-navs I cannot judge whether it is the best on the market but at the price I cannot see how it can be faulted. Except for Emily's execrable French accent!

Trouble finding satellites - a cure.

R. G. Kemp, Amazon
9 June 2011
  • Summary: Bought a second Nuvi 1240, as my daughter had commandeered mine. After charging it up, it wouldn't locate satellites and none of the troubleshooting tips cured the problem. On one website, it suggested that one should press and hold the satellite indicator bars in the top left hand corner of the main screen until a satellite map and signal graph appeared.

Good Basic Sat Nav

  • Summary: Nothing fancy but does what I need. Has more accurate maps than some more expensive units which, in common with Google, have the street names in my local area wrong.
