Db8500the sat navhad mine the best part of 3 years been a great piece of kit, whilst in france and the uk as always got me to my destination without any problems. Dab radiodont bother, yes it works but its not that clever especially as needs to go through an fm modulator. Tva lot place the reception is not that good, and to be totally honest would you really use it.

But you must bear in mind that it’s not like a car sat nav. All together in the past 5 years i’ve bought 4 snoopers (s7000 to the db8500) and i’ve had no trouble at all, some people get frustrated and give up on the snooper after a couple of times when using it, but you must bear in mind that it’s not like a car sat nav, you have to listen to the information as well as pay attention to the screen. Yes i know that it isn’t 100% perfect, but no truck sat nav ever is, that’s where driver’s common sense is supposed to come in. As long as you fully program the device and update the maps before using it in the truck then i don’t see any problems. I’m just about to buy another snooper db8500 for another truck.

Its not a bad trucking satnavyou have to get used to its quirks like all different makes of satnav. Has frozen more than a few times on start up but that’s cause it’s being started up as i turn the engine on. Just turn it off and on again lol and it’s golden. The speakers are a joke for making calls or listening to tv/video so i route it through the radio for entertainment and use hands free for callsit does choose weird routes sometimes but it’s a computer. Look at the map is trying to send you in and adjust it. It’ll reroute you eventually. If you know which way you’re going and don’t like which way the satnav is sending you.

I’ve had one of these for just over a year now and been very happy so far. Routing can be a little odd at times but very rarely. Has locked up twice in the time ive had it. Display been perfectly bright enough and dab radio is great.
