Summary: This makes the 8th (eighth) Navman I have purchased in as many years. I buy them for my wife for her hobby,horseback riding. They only last a year so warranty does not help. Also trying to register them is so hard it's almost not worth it, They don't include a warranty card in their paperwork and the website is a dead end.Also no phone number to call to register. I wish I could find another product like it that she could use.
Summary: I bought two, one for me and one for my girlfriend. That was over five years ago. Mine just went bad. My (ex)gitlfriend bought a more expensive GPS and now is going to give me her W300 (thats what it was called then). When it goes bad I will buy a more expensive GPS. But over 5 years of constant use isn't bad.
Summary: I received this GPS as a gift. After the first few weeks, the display went bad and it no longer shows my speed or distance. Nothing works to change the display anymore. I would invest in something more worthwhile. It was a waste of good friends money!
Summary: I bought this unit to track how far I travel while walking. The first unit received had bad segments in the LCD. Amazon quickly sent another unit that did appear to work. This unit takes a long time to find sattelites. Several times it never found ANY, under clear blue sky. It just turned off after 10 minutes. It would lose signal frequently. The deal breaker is that when it loses sattelites, it will not account for distance during the lost signal.
Summary: The Navman R300 is a great low cost GPS. It gives your current speed, current pace, average speed, distance travelled, calories burned, current altitude and so much more. For the money you just can beat it. I use mine all the time.
