Summary: What a fantastic piece of kit, it might have been launch back in 2006 but still feel very modern and up to date. It is a very easy unit to use with a host of features like SD card reader, blue tooth, MP3 player, and books. The battery last a very long time and the screen is very easy to read even in bright sunshine. The voice feature is excellent like when you are approaching a roundabout it says a roundabout in clear English.
Summary: Bad stuff: it takes too long to start up and can get a bit confused in complex street junctions - but i''ve checked with people who have other sat-navs and it seems they're all the same. Good stuff: clear display, you can mute the nagging voices, and it's pretty reliable.
Summary: on first time of using this product it (having eventually charged up my garmin nuvi sat nav), on removing it from the wall socket the plug section broke apart and could have been dangerous if not switched off first. The cable (1m long) seems OK but plug is cheap & useless - dont buy it.
Excerpt: I bought a Garmin Nuvi 310 after reading a glowing report in Which? magazine. The unit is neat and stylish - and amall-enough to carry around in a pocket to avoid leaving it in the car. The power lead plugs into the screen mount, rather than the unit itself - which makes mounting and demounting the unit very easy. Directions are clear and accurate - although there is one major problem with this unit (and all other Nuvi products).
Pros: Directions are clear and accurate. Blue-tooth link for mobile phone use very useful.
Cons: Final turn command given far too early. No on-screen indication of direction of next turn.
Summary: We bought this item to help us find our way around London,only to find it could not find a signal,after trying for some time we gave up and used a map and our own noses to get around.We tried it when we got home to get to our local shops, it did take us there but took the route a car would take.In the end we gave it to our grandson for his car.
