Excerpt: I like this model as it has exactly what i'm looking for. I purchased this item as I needed a Bluetooth connection for my car and I was also spending time in North America and this combined the two. Easy to use and sound quality is very good on the Bluetooth connection. I would like a longer battery life, and you cant have the sound down on the voice when using the Bluetooth connection but these are small prices to pay for a value for money sat nav.
Excerpt: The Sat Nav itself is very good and friendly. I had difficulty downloading the required maps and software. The software which does this took a long time and never actually said that it had finished doing the job.
Summary: Great design and function. I purchased to update older Garmin unit and needed Europe maps for upcoming trip. I have not used in Europe yet. The map functionality is improved. The bluetooth functionality works great. The only negative is that the volume for the map intruction and the telephone cannot be changed independently.
Excerpt: Whist I have a sat nav build into my own car – this created a problem with foreign holidays; especially picking a car from airports etc - and whilst car hire company’s offer GPS their prices are of course opportunistic and the choice limited, hence the need for a worldwide unit that could be used in all destinations.
Excerpt: Maybe it works OK but unless you have bang up to date programs on your PC you can't get it registraded on line!! Worse still unless you have bang up to date programes you cannot and I repeat cannot down load the free map oooor data update they offer to you. Will tell you if it works when I run it In America. I have an Aplemac and don't have the latest program running so am unable to do any updating and had to phone garmin to get it registered.
