Excerpt: LG KS 360 I must confess that up until about 2 years I would also go for top quality pay and go phone, my last phone had TV etc on it, which was new out at the time, but if I had have used half the services, I would have been living at Boots doing tops up, so when the lovely dog as a pup decided...
Summary: Initially was very pleased, but having used it to go to Plymouth am not that impressed. It took my partner across country, giving wrong exits on roundabouts and turnings that were non existent,managing to get him more or less there in over 9 hours helpfully rearranging its instructions at each wrong...
Summary: I decided to buy a sat nav and having looked and looked, reviewed and reviewed all makes and models I decided on this (half price in sale helped I must admit). Easy to set up, but as others have mentioned DO FULLY CHARGE first and let it find satellites on initial set up then go to Garmin website...
Summary: Exactly what I needed! My Sat Nav (I call her Crispy)is very professional and doesn't engage me in endless directions like approach from the left or right at the roundabout.Highly recommended. Pity I haven't been able to register this product yet.

Summary: Used this on 2 long journeys recently and didn't get lost once, easy to set up and use partic with postcode search, Not so good on place search - I wanted to get to Greenwich Park, one of the Royal Parks, and this was not recognised in the places of interest memory.
Summary: Seems a lot of people have had problems registering, updating and claiming their free map. I thought I would give a few tips as I have successfully managed all this. Top tips: You will require a mini USB cable for the device and this is not contained within the box.
Excellent in use, but trying to download the free update a nightmare

Summary: I've always been rather sceptical of Sat Navs, probably because we often have visitors who rely on them getting lost and phoning for help. I finally took the plunge when faced with a trip to Newcastle and needing to find the hotel I had booked.
Summary: *Update 30/5/12: this now appears to be due to the windscreens of Peogeot 307's having some kind of anti UV coating that affects satellite reception. If it's raining then reception often becomes so bad that that the satnav is rendered useless.
Summary: The product does precisely what it says on the tin - but I have had two of them and both have failed in use under warranty when they failed to switch on...I will not be buying another Garmin product in the near future.
