Summary: The item is in a good location on the windscreen of my transit van but takes a life time to find the sats. I can literally drive 10 miles before it finds them. Once it has found them it works very well indeed. I would not recommend this item as a result of its very slow sat detection.
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. It also notes speed cameras and the road view is so much clearer. The screen is not very big but I am now used to it. There is no way I would pay big money for a higher spec moder as this does the biz.
Summary: I bought this Satnav more than a year ago and am fairly impressed by it's use. I was new to the country(not from EU) and being a foreigner and a new driver added to the dilemma of driving on job. I bought this Satnav for it's price and that I preferred it's display to the counterparts like tom-toms, etc. I have travelled many parts of England in past year and a half with this kit and as long as I know the post code, I have not had any issues driving to the destination.
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. The screen is nice and large and very easy and clear to see. Now that I have used it for a summer season of golf club trekking there are a few problems I have found .
Summary: Please be aware: I bought my Navman in July and it stopped working in August - just outside the 30 day guarantee period. The vendor didn't want to know and Navman wanted me to post the item, at my expense, to them so they could spend three weeks looking at it. I didn't like that idea so complained to Amazon who, give them their due, have arranged a refund for me.
