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: The only way I could think of to measure the accuracy of the Navman S30 unit was to set it up with a trip I was familiar with, but rather than going out in the car I put it into demo mode. I setup home, and then setup a favorite destination - both very simple.
Summary: Never ever buy a Navman if you only want Britain & Ireland as updates for these areas are only available if you buy the whole of Europe so it costs the same as a new satnav to update. VERY SNEAKY !!!!!
Summary: I have had this satnav for about 18 months now, so hope I could give a more informed opinion - Positives: 1. Bright and clear screen layout 2. Map graphics is miles better than any other satnav, especially the next turn/roundabout indicator 3. Loud and clear voice instructions 4.
Summary: I already had a TomTom 500 in my other car and wanted a pocket sized unit for walking in London and for use in my little run around car. It came out of the box and worked, simple to set up and quick to find the satellite.
Summary: I SAW THIS SAT NAV RECOMMENDED IN A RECENT COMPUTING MAGAZINE SO WENT WITH THEIR RECOMENDATION. I FOUND IT WAS GOOD FOR ROUTES IN MORE RURAL AREAS WHERE I LIVE BUT WHEN I TRIED TESTING IT COMING HOME FROM WORK IN GLASGOW, NO MATTER WHICH SETTING I USED, IT NEVER GAVE ME THE QUICKEST OR SHORTEST WAY...
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got it for wife over a year ago and she's recounted quite a few situations where the map/speed camera database is out of date.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.
Excerpt: I got one of these for Christmas and it's proved invaluable! I have my driving confidence back as I no longer have to be trying to look at a map while driving, or stopping to check maps as I go.
Pros: Easy to use straight out of the box .
Cons: Cables trailing over the car to power it for longer journeys
cheap ,does the job but if you use it alot then you really need a tom tom

Excerpt: 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.
Excerpt: The Navman S30 really sets a standard amongst the Navigation system community simply becuse of its high quality 3D interface, which really looks good, much better than the one found on TomTom's.
Pros: Good interface, cheap, repeated instructions, user - friendly interface
