A GPS that can't tell a freeway from a dirt road

Securitywyrm, Amazon
2 February 2011
  • Summary: I have owned several GPS now, and this one is by far the worst. To be clear, it performs all of the required functions.

One Armed John, Amazon
13 June 2010
  • Summary: This was the first satnav I've ever bought. I got it just before Christmas as my family needed to go on a long drive, and for reasons too lengthy to explain here I can no longer drive our main vehicle, so my wife has to drive, and she doesn't take kindly to my 'instruction' on where to go, so in the...
