Summary: Not very user friendly but just like the saying goes, "you get what you pay for" holds true. Probably the most dissapointing thing is you need to use the stylus to do everything unless you have TINY fingers. Also, not to easy to work with unless you are pulled over to the side of the road. I prefer the Garmin I have over this any day. Spend the extra few bucks and get a Garmin.
Conclusion: "What a disappointment! Everthing that could go wrong with this unit did ! the on /off button broke within weeks, the system shut down completely, the cradle snapped, the internal componants of the charger fell apart ! Now the internal speaker has broke. I have been told the unit is now beyond repair after light use for less than 2.5years Very unhappy !
Summary: The GPS unit worked fine on the first couple of occasions I used it, but then, travelling from Surrey to Manchester, the directions kept wanting to take me off the motorway, for no reason what so ever. Since then, it has taken me to different address to the post code I have entered, stating that "you have reached your destination"! Not impressed!
Summary: item arrived barely 3 days after ordering, great service. Item classed as new, but looked like it was the last demo in the shop - not a problem as I want it to work rather than look pretty. Tried it for the first time, easy to set up and start programming a home address, directions clear and repeated in plenty of time. Graphics clear and simple, had a bit of trouble telling a turn from a bend in the road but the graphics are good enough to rely on.
Summary: I have had this satnav for a couple of years, and used it all day long to find properties in my job, as well as to travel long distance. I also have friends who have other more well known types of satnav and have observed the problems they have experienced which I have not. It is an excellent satnav in many ways. The first and I think a very key advantage is the device to hold this to your windscreen is very strong, your satnav will not fall off as other brands do!
Summary: This is a good product. The female voice is pleasant, and the volume is adjustable. The unit can locate satellites even from within one's home, and it can work from within any cubby hole in one's car if you want it positioned neither on the windscreen nor on the dashboard. The unit easily adjusts itself if you stray from its directions, whether intentionally or unintentionally, and it does not scold you if you do so.
