Helena, Herts Occasional user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Nice big screen. Very easy to set up and install.
Bad points:
Should have a USB cable supplied with this. You have to purchase separately!!
Roundabouts are a bit confusing on screen. If there is a large roundabout with many exits, graphics not clear always which one to take. Have gone down a few wrong turnings. Not too bad so far , but if I take a wrong turning and have to go miles out of my way, I would then be marking lower on accuracy.

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Reviewer left no comment
Bad points:
Poor battery strenght needs to be constantly charged and charging cable is too thick it clutters up the car. Item does not react fast enough on complicated junctions which can leave you taking the wrong exit. Definately needs to have lane guidance.
