Summary: The ancillary functions on this unit are useless you may as well get a basic model it will, at least, perform as expected. You want to change school alerts you need to connect to your PC and enter changes through the program files in the device address for this info is http://www.navman.com/in-car/3294/Australia/Navman-Australia/Our-Products/Platinum-Quick-Guide/Schoolzones/ This is a joke! Buy something else except this piece of junk.
Pros: Easy to read, touch screen after you get used to it
Cons: Manual, Inaccuracy of data in logs, bluetooth, FM transmitter
Summary: Since my previous post SP1 and SP2 have been released. This appears to have fixed the rebooting and screen lock up issues I was experiencing. The touchscreen is now more responsive and easier to use. Overall I am 60% happy but would give the unit 100% if my issues below were fixed by a futuire software upgrade.
Pros: Good navigation and directions. Good interface and menus. Good visually to follow maps as you drive.
Cons: My concerns re data logging / retention of log files. Being unable to bring up your current GPS coordinates and the time that traffic alerts are displayed remain. Hopefully to fixed in a future software update.
Summary: S300T purchased December 08. I have found the unit has numerous shortcomings some of which I have listed below. I am hoping Navman will address these with a software update, however I am not expecting anything really positive from them having already spoken to their phone support staff, very disapointing.. In hindsight I wish I had gon for a cheaper S50 or a mio and save a few hundred dollars.
Pros: Have never had a GPS previously so can't compare. Maps are easy to read and directions are generally very good with plenty of prompts.
Cons: I have an s300T - 1. My unit regularly re boots itself if I do consecutive CBD and metro routes over approx 80 kilometres. 2. Their is no way of bringing up your current coordinates, so if you want to give a 3rd party your current location by GPS coordinate you can't do it. This seems a pretty basic function for a $700.00 in car GPS / Navigator. Too bad if you have an accident in the bush and want to call an ambulance, you won't be able to tell them where you are. Fri...
