Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Small, lightweight and good battery life.
Bad points:
Inaccurate mapping and speed cameras. Everytime I use it I find several junctions that are not listed and show as a through road and through roads that appear as a junction. I have found speed camera's that have been removed still appear on the satnav and some are missing even when it is obvious that they have been there for a while, this is even when I have updated my safety camera's that day.

The map can only really be used as a general direction indicator, whereas a tomtom will show the road much more accurately with time and distance left which this doesn't. Also you can not have the sound on for speed cameras and off for mapping, can be very annoying when all you want is warnings. I went for this Garmin as it was cheaper than the tomtom, I wish I hadn't been so tight!
