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: Bought this to replace a Tom Tom version running on my PDA, which sadly failed. This is an excellent little Sat Nav. Finds the satellites far quicker than the Tom Tom, easy to use. Good screen graphics, clear voice commands, easy navigation of applications although finding how to use the demo mode proved a little fiddly at first. Speed camera alerts free for up to six months, works fine.
Summary: I treated myself to a NavMan just after Christmas and I love it. I used to be a nervous driver who hated going anywhere new and if I did go I'd arrive stressed and irritable. With the NavMan I can drive more confidently and it's not let me down yet, even finding a faster way to a friend's house.

Summary: As a newcomer to sat-nav I found this product very easy to set up and understand. I also like the way it recalculates the route should you wish to cut a corner. This, without wittering at you. Altogether best buy.
Summary: Ive seen the bad reviews on this device, but here is my stab at it. I used the S30 to go to Ireland, both Southern & North of the border. The device worked very well, it did get its knicks in a twist when roads had been altered but nothing you couldnt see your way out of. I had to go from Rosslare to Dundalk and beyond into NI, quickly with few problems even if you ignored its advice and drove the wrong way.
