Good, clear screen and fairly easy to set up. The menus not as intuitive as they might be; a copy of the manual in one hand and the satnav in the other probably the best way to approach it. Pickup of satellites was quick, at least here in the wilds of wales. In use, for a basic model, it is helpful although the maps that come with it are not up-to-date. Even after updating to the latest version of maps, i found a dual-carriageway bypass during a journey that had been open at least a year that wasn’t shown – the garmin thought i was driving across fields. Also, some speed limits were wrong (usually higher than the ones actually in force). Don’t rely on this to save you from speeding fines. Having said that, the speed you’re actually travelling at was shown very accurately. On the same subject, the poi file containing speed camera information was woefully out of date and was a chargeable update.

I’m the most nervous driver ever when i. I’m the most nervous driver ever when i don’t know where i’m going, but this gives me the confidence to drive anywhere i like.

I bought this to supplement the built-in sat-nav in my citroen c3 picasso because this has significant issues when you want to enter your destination using a post code. Used it to drive 130+ miles to a rather out-of- the way, cross-country destination that i was familiar with and for which there are at least 4 optional routes. The quick route was exactly as i would have used and the shortest route was also spot on. Beautiful, easy to read display with loads of option regarding your viewing mode. Even the estimated time of arrival was extremely accurate, considering the distance involved. As for the speed ‘indicator’, this very accurately confirmed that the one fitted as original equipment in the citroen generally ran 2 mph fast.

With 823 reviews averaging four and a half stars each it is hardly necessary for me to add my two pennorth. . But i willi have had a tomtom for about three years now and have been reasonably happy with it. . One of the downsides is having to pay for map updates. However i now have this garmin (with free. Map updates) and the difference is remarkable. The volume is much better than the tomtom. The touch screen is excellent. The on screen instructions are simple and straightforward.

Excellent value for money with free map upgrades.

Freedom comes with knowing you won’t get lost. To my mind garmin is the best sat nav on the market. If you deviate you are told “off route recalculating” to alert you that you have gone wrong. I would like the feature back of asking if i am a motorbike, car or lorry as i don’t like driving on small roads.My old garmin had this facility so i could pretend i was a lorry. 🙂 just a postcode or place and it’s easy to find your destination. If the actual place is nearby and you want to re-program, you just say ‘where am i’ and then log that as the new destination.

Reliable and useful- a good all round sat nav which will get you from a to b with little trouble. The big screen is great- inputting data for someone like me with fat sausage like fingers is easy- and finding signal doesn’t take too long. One gripe info have with it is the speed camera warning on the screen. The warning is a block of text in a box- which covers up a large part of the map when driving- fine on the motorway but when you’re trying to see the roads in a new town or city it can be frustrating. It’s a minor niggle- so id certainly recommend this over a tom tom (had a tom tom for all of 2 days before swapping for this).

I’ve been useing this sat nav quite a bit although i am a good navigator with a map. My husband drives and i usually have my head down in the map and don’t see much of the country side. It hasn’t let us down and navigating for me is now more of a pleasure.

Navigon 4310Max Satellite Navigation System – Europe Traffic Widescreen : A very quality product!

Would be 5 stars but currently only a beta version of the download manager for macs and it does not use the last two characters of a post code to locate an address, not so good for a rural location where street names and house numbers are not always common. …
