peter, mansfield Occasional user

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Not sure as I have not had one before.Clear display.
Bad points:
This does not recognise our home postcode or address and gets very confused at the start of every journey, trying to send us across the fields to a nearby road. Also gives unclear instructions sometimes such as keep left when it means turn left. Has told us suddenly to do a 180 turn in the middle of the A1 for no apparent reason.

KEITH, coventry Use it for work

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
clear, concise screen, basically designed for a driver who wants to get from a - b with choice of routes, ie avoiding tolls, updates for an sd card ( not supplied ) are an advantage for the more regular long distance driver.
Bad points:
navigating multi - exit traffic islands can prove difficult on occasions with advanced voice promt, but if you check screen on entry you usually know your exit to compensate, i stress this is only on spasmodic occasions.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Good size, if you go wrong it recalculates quickly, easy to use, do like the product and good value for money
Bad points:
Gives some bizarre directions at times which are completely inaccurate, loses satellite connection, sometimes it bleeps loudly for several minutes, no idea why!
