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.
Summary: i bought two of these sat navs, one for myself and one for my best man, going off the reviews i read off amazon. we both agree that its a good little sat nav and does the job fine. it has good features like 'points of interest' which allows you to see nearby stuff which might be useful ore nice to go and see. things such as cash points and petrol stations etc which we all need. very useful if your visiting or traveling through somewhere for the first time.
Summary: Unit works very well although it takes several minutes to find location when first switched on. The only draw back is that apart from purchasing map updates and extra maps from Navman other extras,eg,POI cannot be added. At the price, great and heated front windscreen does not interfere with sat. reception.
Summary: Had the S30 3D for a week now, and I'll say Im very impressed. It gives clear advice in advance of turnings and finds satellites very quickly. Visually it is very easy to interpret at a glance and is nice and small as sat-navs go. I have previously used tom-toms and was dubious as to how good the system would be given the £65 price tag, but found this to be no less effective. The windscreen mount is very good and easy to remove. The screen is bright even in sunlight.
Summary: Navman S30/S50/S70/S90i HOME Mains Charger Adaptor Plug My first sat nav. Only tested driving to work so far (16 mile journey) and I'm quite impressed. Nice bell sound warns you of fixed speed cameras, simple to use but the touch screen is a bit fiddly due to it being quite small. I don't have fat fingers and I still manage to punch in a few wrong letters into the onscreen keyboard...not a big problem though, probably just takes some getting used to.
Excerpt: The s30 is an entry level satnav with a slightly cramped 3.5in display. The other two new models in the s series, the s50 and the s70, both boast larger screens. At the top right is an indicator showing how many more miles you will be staying on the same road, along with its name. The centre of the screen shows the street that you are on and your progress along it, while the roads you pass are displayed in a subdued grey with thinner lines.
Summary: Navman S30 3D Satellite Navigation Unit With UK & Ireland Mapping This was my first sat nav and I am pleased with it. It was fairly easy to get up and running and guided me through an unknown route very well. I had a bit of trouble with putting in adresses as it repeated it back OK but then didn't recognise it! The voice instructions are easy to hear and I like the fact that it repeats it. The downsides are firstly that there is NO instruction book in the box!
Summary: I've had the S30 for a couple of weeks and it is excellent for the price. Mostly takes me exactly to my chosen destination which I've found extremely useful when travelling on unlit and unmarked country lanes. The only down side I've found was when in the centre of Reading, Berkshire when it tried to send me down one-way streets on two occasions. Then it computes the route again and gets totally confused, repeatedly telling me to 'perform a u-turn when possible!
