S, Fife Occasional user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
So easy to use, will put it to the test when it takes us to France later in the year. As we have a young family an great bonus is the sat nav being able to tell us what resteraunts are near by and there phone numbers! Great for being on the road and not wanting to go to the usually at the side of motorways!
Bad points:
Haven't found any yet.....tv not the best signal in some areas but hey, you can't have everything.

John, Use it for work

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Relatively intuitive to use. Works well and finds destinations quickly. TV work OK with a good to reasonable signal..
Bad points:
Owners Manual downloadable from Garmin - The instructions for connecting to a PC and how to download new maps, software and Points of Interest could be better explained. The Freeview channels are listed in channel frequency order and not in the usual Freeview order.

Anthony, Wolverhampton Always use sat nav

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use
Large clear screen
Clear vocal instructions
Free view TV works well and lasts around 1 hour on a full battery.
Easy to attach and remove from cradle
Bad points:
When in the map setting "more data layout" mode details appear in large font on the right hand of the screen effectivly making the map a lot narrower.
If it ran across the bottom using smaller font it would be more user frendly,
To use the full size screen you can only choose one option , ie distance to detination or time to destination
