Good value and great functionality. We got this as a replacement for one which was stolen. Easy to use, clear and screen is good to follow. We couldn’t see the benefit of all the complications and variable benefits of the upgraded models.

Very happy with the product and navigation so far (locally in. Very happy with the product and navigation so far (locally in uk). Worth investing in a micro sd to get full europe map data as in built memory small.

It’s an excellent piece of equipment, but sadly the speed limit warnings are not updated as regularly as they should be. Despite my keeping it up to date some signed speed limits are not being updated. To be fair they are fairly recent. But the traffic system works well and many other new additions work well too, so on balance i’ve given it five stars.

Great satnav but let down by voice commands – does not understand me (south-english accent). Doesn’t know all of the roads but it’s pretty good. The voice command is abysmal though, i found the google maps one far better i don’t even bother with this ones. But the manual search protocol is good – postcode – number- go.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • A great piece of kit

A highly effective satnav journeys and locations. . This satnav is so much better than my previous one. It locates destinations so much better and give much more information on road conditions.

Extremely impressed with this sat nav. Upgraded to this live traffic model and it has already proved it’s worth.

I bought this, primarily because we were going away on holiday to the lake district, and even with written instructions, my wife’s navigation abilities are sorely lacking. My wife can’t drive either, before anyone suggests that i read a map, and let my wife drive. Without a doubt, the sat nav prevented a number of arguments whilst on holiday, although perhaps didn’t always select the best route, which i have certainly noticed closer to home. It is also easy to use, which is a good job as it does not come with any instructions. All in all, a very good sat nav and would recommend it to anyone.

Disapointed with product as an earlier model purchased that also. Disapointed with product as an earlier model purchased that also had lifetime map updates and traffic information came with the antenna charge lead included. This product came with a standard charge lead. If you wish to purchase the traffic antenna lead it will cost you another £60.

Menus a little difficult to work out particularly as the instruction manual is not very comprehensive – the on-line version is much better. There are a number of version with the same number, i wanted the traffic version but ended up with the one that needed a mobile phone to give alerts. On the fastest setting it would occasional take the route which was shortest but not the quickest (narrow road/difficult junction etc). Once working the directions were clear and easy to follow.

I nearly went for a bigger screen. I nearly went for a bigger screen but glad i didn’t as this is big enough that it doesn’t take up to much space in the windscreen. Went for garmin as i already had a dashboard mount (don’t like sticking on windscreen )& was hoping it would fit, & it did. Great for me as i drive hgvs. 1 down point is that the volume could be louder.
