Summary: This could be a matter of me not reading the posting completely, but this thing only has Britain in it, no data on roads in the U.S. The instructions tell you where to go on the internet to get maps of other countries, but nothing telling you how to load them into the set.
Summary: This GPS is nicely set up and isnt too hard to operate. The bad side is that there is no website support for the US and it has a tracking problem. This could have been the one I had, but when you stop, gps keeps flipping your position around as if you were rotating in a circle. When you take off it has to reacquire your position. This is a problem if you are in an area with a lot of streets where directions happen often.
Summary: My wife and I were heading to Ireland and wanted an inexpensive car gps to take along. This one appeared to fit the bill, (it was inexpensive and had UK and Ireland maps) so we bought it. We needed it rushed, and the seller did a great job and got it to us. That was when the problems started. First, it came with US maps. Second, it was out of service, so we could not do anything about the maps or upgrading the software.
Summary: I like this unit. For the Navman N40i, this is a good unit it adquires a gps signal within seconds from a cold start, it grabs a satellite faster than my Mio 520 or my Garmin 350, or Navigon, and quickly in a heavily treed areas. I can not believe how quick it adquires for a older unit. The maps are old and so for there are no up dates yet. Once I got use to the menus I found them to be the better of other units.
Summary: I finally decided to get one after seeing my RE broker's GPS in action. This one looked small but the price was right - I'm now glad I went with it. It fits in the holder on my dash but is small enough to take with me wherever I go. It is small enough to slip in a compartment on my dash so it isn't always in plain view.
Summary: The map was outdated when I received my unit. Not quite sure where to get a new map and how much it cost. Satelite acquiring was very fast and I could use the unit without mouting it on my wind shield. It even worked inside my house. It lack street name annoucement but I did not find this a terrible drawback. 3 D mapping wasn't impressive and I couldn't tell whether it was on 2D or 3 D.
Summary: After shopping locally for a GPS system and not impressed with prices, I came to Overstock, was pleased with selection and prices. The Navman seemed to meet my requirements. I am not technologically literate but after receiving the product and spending about 10 minutes on the features and functions, found it very user friendly. I recommended it to a friend who purchased and is pleased with it as well.
Summary: The navman is my first GPS product and I am generally pleased with it. But as I have not used but one other before (in a rental car) I have no way of comparing it. This is just the facts of this unit. CONS (1) It cannot find my address...it finds the people across and down the street a little. (2) It gets lost sometimes...meaning it will suddenly put me in another area or state all on its own while I am driving.
Summary: For the price range and all the Gps Units I found it has to be the best bang for the buck... small enough to store a (in the glove compartment without the suction cup mount) and seems very durable I mounted the suction cup mount thingy that holds the reciever to my windshield but I didn't press firmly enough and it fell pretty hard but still works like new (I didn't want to try the permanent installation of it) I think they should invent a better temporary mounting...
