Summary: I had the earlier version of this budget satnav which was stolen from my car(waste of time) I immediately purchased this and am delighted with it. Compared to the earlier Navman it is a piece of cake. It gives much clearer instructions and the volume is better.
Excerpt: The navman s30 was a welcome birthday from present from my son, as i spend alot of time getting lost on my way to golf courses!! The navman s30 is very easy to use, the touch screen menu is easy to access and very easy to programme, even for me a bit of a techno-phobe.
Summary: This Satnav isnt just woefully useless, its dangerous - you spend so much time looking at it trying to figure out if the instructions its just given are actually correct, or if, like about half the time, its spewing random bull at you - heres a sample; in the space of 10 seconds, on a dead straight...
Summary: Bought a Navman S30 which failed with a hardware fault after just over 12 months. Just outside of the Warranty Period (for the UK). Functionally it worked fine before it broke down and was very accurate. However, I wanted something that might last at least a couple of years!
Summary: Not bad for the price... ...however, got it for wife over a year ago and she's recounted quite a few situations where the map/speed camera database is out of date. We couldn't get the maps to update using the software/cable provided and email support wasn't very helpful.
better than factory-fitted sat-nav installed in company car

Summary: I have a Company car which i chose because it has sat-nav installed in the factory.With a large colourtouch screen,i thought i'd be fine covering my 40k miles a year.However,i was wrong.I couldn't put in a full post-code,there was no warning of safety cameras and it wasn't up-to-date with road...
Summary: Ive owned the Navman S30 for over a month now and its helped me on several journeys within and outside Sheffield. If your looking for a first/cheap sat nav especially one you wont use often then this is the one i'd recommend. It has few draw backs.
Summary: My first sat nav.I have used tomtom not much difference between the two.The s30 gives you a good SatNav for £30 + less than tom tom .Maps are up to date(new A8000 in Edinburgh shown)speed camera and red light cameras are fairly accurate .Im pleased with it :)
Summary: For the price this is a great buy. I have had no problems with it, styling is much better than the tom tom in my opinion. For 85 pounds you cannot go wrong. Cannot fault it in any way shape or form.
