Summary: How do you rate this item? >>>>>>>>>> 0,0000000000001 STAR ! I contacted the CS from Michelin yesterday abouth my X950T bought in 2008 about a MAP update ! This is what I get back "We would like to let you know first that our after sales department is only available by e-mail correspondence. Following your update request, we can confirm that ViaMichelin ceased all GPS activity in 2008 and is no longer able to provide mapping adjustments for ViaMichelin GPS devices.
Summary: Probably the worst SAT NAV in the World. If it is all you can afford, buy a map. I purchased the top of the range via Michelin when they first came out, and it cost nearly £300.00. What a waste of money. The guarantee was not worth the paper that it was printed on, and Michelin were less than helpful. Within the year it bust, and despite it going back it never worked again.
Summary: Search a little and you will discover that Michelin have stopped making satnav systems so even they have realised how poor they were!! Poor battery , poor POI availability and poor guidance. Obviously as they have stopped production they have also stopped support / updating their products , i managed to download an update and new map but it was still dreadful I gave in and sold it at a loss on Ebay in the end. AVOID!!
Summary: I bought this Sat Nav, and am now returning it for a refund. It did not serve its purpose at all. I carefully read the instructions and did everything properly and it simply doesn't give any vaguely helpful navigation. It only occasionally correctly identified my location and gave relevant instructions. Even then, instruction would be frozen on the screen for a long time after I'd followed it and would only update after 10-15 minutes, which is too late!
Summary: I have a ViaMichelin Sat. Nav. the same model advertised X-950T bought from new 18 months ago and have had the same problems from the start as the other reviewer. Cannot register it on line or any other way,Michelin will not accept the registration. Tried to get help to solve the problems but Michelin ignored my calls.
Excerpt: Waste of money! Advantages: Few and far between. Occassionally works. Disadvantages: Crashes and totally freezes up on most journeys causing distraction and delays. Absolutely impossible to synchronise with Windows Vista for either updates or registration. European version claims to cover Scandanavia when it doesn't at all. Customer support non-existant. Buy something better!
Summary: Après 2 ans d'utilisation en France: plantage informatique fréquent en ville pendant au moins 3 minutes; impossibilité de ne pas être guidé vers les autoroutes à péages; autonomie éteind non branché de 3 jours puis tous les adresses,les options s'éffacent et il faut penser a réactiver les radars et le reste;il faut être très très compétent en imformatique pour mettre à jour les radars, moi j'ai abandonné malgrés cette importante utilisation.
Summary: delusione massima in questo prodotto. improvvisamente inizia a cambiare lo schermo posizionandosi una volta qua una volta la. riportato all'euronics entro i 7 gg. , purtroppo il difetto non lo faceva in loro presenza. Già, perchè un navigatore deve essere utilizzato all'esterno e mentre si naviga (mi sembra logico. Cmq sta di fatto che a tutt'oggi il difetto c'è. Magari potessi tornare indietro.
Summary: Empecemos por el primer problema del cual no eres consciente hasta que arrancas por primera vez el navegador y es ni mas ni menos que los mapas que vienen en el navegador se corresponden con la fecha de fabricación del mismo y por tanto aunque tu acabes de comprar tu flamante aparatito hace unas horas, lo mapas instalados pueden ser del año 2005 lo cual lo hace inservible en un lugar en constante reconstrucción como Madrid.
