Summary: I bought one from Radio Shack over a year ago, and it was, as of July 2010 better than any that I tried (Under $200). Then, in trying to update it, I screwed it up and after hours on the phone and trying to bring it back, I gave up and bought a new MIO (used to be Navman). Not a total loss, tho' - I formatted it, and it is now an excellent almost a gig portable storage - fits in breast pocket and not hard to find like the little USB "dipsticks" If I can ever find someone...

Summary: The Navman F15 is a great value for the money. The maps are a detailed and the water features (rivers, lakes, etc.) are all included. It's easy to use and better than original the equipment units on our new cars. If you find one of these units at a good price, bid to win!
Navman F15: New to SatNav and pleasantly surprised
22 September 2009
Summary: My first experience of SatNav for a very long time, and I was pleasantly surprised. I briefly tried this technology many years ago when it was very new, very cutting edge and as useful as a chocolate fireguard, so I didn't rush to get one. The Navman was a complete impulse buy. I bought it as Ebay's Deal of the Day, at so a stunning price it made me decide to join the SatNav age and stop being such an old codger. The Navman worked straight out of the box.
Summary: I knew I wanted to get a sat. nav. for my partner as he had wanted one for ages, so when the opportunity to get him one arose, I looked around to get one that would be high quality at a reasonable price; which would also be fairly easy to use. I looked in several places for a decent sat. nav.
Pros: easy to use, touch screen, ready to use straight away
