Easy to see screen. Good directions when roads merging.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
It is great. I love the junction photos when travelling onthe motorway
Bad points:
the volume control is now on the touch screen so you have to make 2 or 3 actions to get back to it when travelling whereas my old Garmin had a dial on the side which made it safer when driving

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Easy to start up and clear to follow. We have not yet tried the European maps yet but we are confident that it will function well. We updated the maps by linking through the computer and this was easily achieved as well.
Bad points:
Local trips showed that it cannot beat local knowledge so we do not use it for places we know as we just ended up shouting at it and laughing.
