Summary: I bought this as a hopefully easy way to navigate around. For a very good price too! It's really easy to use the touch screen, and adjust too. I liked the simplicity and big fonts, but it's a little annoying that you are supposed to update it with maps via the computer, and it doesn't come with a USB connector for this. The GPS is the best out of 4 I know, it renavigates quickly and easily, and gives clear directions. Very happy!
Excerpt: I think this SAT nav was a very good buy and i am very pleased that i bought it. Ishould tell everyone that is searching for a SAT nav i would say that you are getting a good deal with this price.
Summary: when i was looking for a my first sat nav system i wanted something reasonably priced, easy to use and above all reliable. the garmin street pilot appealed to me at the time because it looked fairly straight forward and was decently priced. i mean at the end of the day all i want a sat nav for is to help me get from A to B hassle free. i am please to report that i was very very pleased with my purchase. the sat nav system itself is very easy to use.
Pros: simple interface, easy to programme, value for money
Cons: chunky design, need a hefty dose of common sense to use at times (gets confused!)
Summary: This was my first introduction to sat navs having had the C510 bought as a Christmas present 3 years ago. Have to say that the unit has got me to the front doors 95% of the time having only had one or two minor issues with post codes and the actual property location. Bought a GTM 21 TMC traffic lead for it as an optional extra online and found this to be a really useful addition.
Excerpt: "...many of its counterparts, the Garmin does not come attached to the suction pad. It depends on your view as to whether this is an advantage or not, but I personally feel that it is. The suction pad has a good hold on the device and because where the Sat-Nav fits on the back, it can roate around easily. I feel that it adds to the ease of use because you can just take off the device, slip it into the carry case and then put the holder into your glove ...
Summary: I've only just recently bought a c510, and was amazed at its acuracy. This is a good midrange unit with some fairly good features.
Pros: Easy to use touch screen Quick start up. Voice to text is very handy,and gives plenty of warning on lane changes , turns etc. Sirf 111 chip is now probably the best system on the market. Good manual, thats easy to understand.
Cons: A little bulky. Needs to have a good line of sight to satellites Can be fiddly to place on widscreen, but once stuck there, it won't move. Fiddly volume control.
