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: I must admit that I was a bit surprised to receive a Motorola mobile phone charger, but since it's the correct connection and wattage for my Garmin Nüvi, does it matter. Not at that price it doesn't comapred to the official article!
Summary: I've had this unit for about a year now and used it around the Island and for forays to the UK. At home it has some strange ideas about the quickest route but will happily recalculate if you decide against going down any particular lane. Like any sat nav, you do need to keep your common sense switched on. No other complaints and in the UK it has been a real asset.
Excerpt: "Garmin Nuvi 310 is an excellent piece of kit for people looking for affordable compact navigator with lot of features. Features Navigation I have bought UK maps preloaded, and the navigation menu provides options to go to an address or search from custom POI list, like Food, Fuel, Lodging, Intersections, Attractions, Shopping, Parking, Entertainment, Recreation etc. It also gives options to search a custom POI nearest to a location/address ...
Summary: Having bought this item to assist my wife in finding the many lecture venues across Norfolk that she needs to attend, we decided to give it a trial run on a day out with friends. We needed to get to Sutton Hoo Ship Burial site in Suffolk from our home in Norfolk. We tested it against the online AA/RAC routefinders - the result was interesting.
Excerpt: "...have previous experience of both Garmin and Tomtom products. The 310 is pretty well top-of-the-range apart from the fact that it doesn't read out street names, it just says, for example, turn left or turn right. It's quite fast finding satellites, even when it has been off for a while. Navigation has always been reliable, apart from the occasional GPS anomaly which seems to affect all devices anyway. I've been particularly impressed by the ...
Summary: Had my Garmin 310 for about a month now and it came just in time for me to use it during my holiday in the Peak Disrict. Straight out of the box and with barely a glance at the instructions, the unit was easy to set up with some very informative on screen menus. Fitting the unit to its holder and attatching it to the windscreen was simple, but I did not push the power lead all the way home in my car's aux socket, which I realised when we lost power about 90 minutes into...
Summary: I've had the Nuvi 310 for a couple of months now, and I can honestly say that it is a very good bit of kit. To echo the other reviews here, it is well-built, easy to use and extremely versatile for people who spend a lot of time on the road. The screen is clear and precise; the maps, though not always perfect what with all the new roads being built, are detailed and rarely will you find yourself "lost in space." The bluetooth system is excellent.
Summary: having had a streetpilot i3 with 2.5 inch screen, and thumbwheel input controls, this unit is great upgrade, at £159 its great value too. The menu is intuative, sound quality is fine, and the bluetooth functionality is excellent. Still learning how to use it, lots to play with, but so far so good.
Summary: Have now been using the Nuvi 310 on and off for nearly three months. I selected this particular model in the range because of the in-built maps of Europe although I have yet to put these to the test! This is a well made product that fits neatly into a pocket when necessary and comes with its own carrying case. Overall, it does its job quite well although I've been led down the garden path on a couple of occasions and literally drove around in circles on another.
