Summary: 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 .
Excerpt: "...maps as I go. The Navman isn't infallible and has made some small mistakes but mainly it's meant that journeys have been easier and on some regular trips it's found a faster alternative route. It does sometimes think that dual carriageways are motorways and it seems convinced there are permanent roadworks and a 30mph limit on the M42... But then if I could get the DVD navdesk part working on my computer it'd probably help! However, that's a problem ...
Pros: Easy to use straight out of the box .
Cons: Cables trailing over the car to power it for longer journeys
Summary: i was looking at tom tom ones for 129 qiud and then this was on the shelf in a supermarket for 89 quid so i looked closer and after reading all the features were the same i went for it and to be honst i have regretted every time i use it. It takes ages to find sattelites when you switch it on and is very fiddly to fit in the cradle. It also thinks i am driving like lewis hamilton because it gives unreal driving times.
Summary: The S30 Navam definately gets the thumbs up from me. The unit is light, durable and stylish. It comes complete with a grib to attach on the screen. The grib stays firmly on the screen (unlike another Sat Nav i used to have!). The screen is the pefect size and is completely touch screen. The unit is easy to use - you really can't go wrong with it! The menu allows quick access to postcode, town and road search and stores your favourites to make it even easier to find.
