  • Excerpt: Bought 2 of exact same model (one for each car). First one did not work at all. Second one works fine. Took 2 stars off for the defective model, which is going back.

basic but functional

  • Excerpt: there is no doubting that this item is a fantastic price, it is low on features and a little small but it gets the job done and thus far hasn't gotten me lost although it does occasionally seem to get itself confused.

LITTLE BIT DISSAPOINTING

Paul777777, Halfords
13 July 2014
  • Excerpt: 1) Graphics not as good as Main Competitor's 2) Recalculating the route after taking the wrong route takes too long. 3) 3D way of displaying the route far from accurate. 4) UPDATED maps still not showing some obvious places or postcodes. It's OK if You already bought it - it will take You to places.

Met most expectations

GERALD IRELAND, Amazon
29 June 2014
  • Summary: Was not as up to date as I had hoped, and the screen smaller than I was used to, but about what was expected. It was,after all, purchased just to tide us over to a new car purchase next year. So not overly happy, but satisfied.

  • Excerpt: I went to download the owners manual and ended up with thing I didn't want, one was a lousy search engine. Other than that the unit works fine and is easy to use.

  • Summary: Description says it comes with a USB cable to download updates and maps from computer. Did not come with the cable-the reason I bought it was to specifically download Panama maps. Disappointed.

Good for the price.

slic4904, Ebay

  • Summary: A good buy for the price I paid. Lacks some points of interest for searching for address. Seems to change from close view to long distance by it self. Some times your icon is not even on the road you are on. The road isn't even on display. The speed limit icon is wrong alot with being on a 55mph and it reads 30mph. Vise/Versa. Otherwise it works for a majority of my needs.

Okay when it actually worked properly...

Rowdygal18, Amazon
7 January 2014
  • Summary: Not sure if it was just a glitch in this particular unit, but it was very slow to adjust directions so quick turns were missed and it also gave us incorrect directions several times as well as having us do unneeded u-turns. Not good and very frustrating when you are traveling in an unfamiliar area like Washington DC. Returned because it was not working properly.
