Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use. Good display. Clear instructions. More confident now when asked to deliver/collect items via work - not the same chance of getting lost.Like all the other item that are included e.g. where am I, traffic speed cameras, facilities close by.
Bad points:
Disappointed did not come with ppouch or case to stop the screen getting scratched. First sat nav have ever owned or used so have nothing to comparte with but it can be distracting when trying to view screen while driving. Have had to pull over once or twice to get more concise directions.

Terry, Camberley

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
It is quite easy to use, it fits into the pocket when away from the car, accuacy is good providing you put the .whole address and not rely on just the postcode. The voice giving the instructions was very clear and did not become an irritation like some sat navs do.
I have had sat navs before and this is the best so far, but of course I am still getting use to it.
Bad points:
I thought the instruction booklet was light on information, ie I wanted to know if the sat nav made a beep when it was coming up to a speed camera as just having the speed on the screen is not any good when driving, I have still to find this out. I would have thought a simple charger could have been added to the pack
f.o.c. Roundabouts seem to be the only problem as far as directions are concerned, ie it said take the 3rd exit but before I got to the 2nd exit it said turn left, it was a little confusing.
I had to get a computer geek to register the sat nav and down load as I was havng trouble, that could have been me.

Unfortunately, It says that it comes with all maps for West Europe, which is not true. The details and quality of the maps are really bad!!!!

Not tried the European part yet. Cheaper versions would do a similar function in the UK.

Ken, Congleton Use it for work

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Good clear screen. Easy to navigate the Menu. Versatile to attach via sticky-pad to dashboard or via suction cup to windscreen.
Bad points:
Power supply via mini-USB directly into SatNav unit so has to be disconnected every time it's removed. My previous Garmin had the mini-USB plugged into the Mounting System then the SatNav picked up power from the Mounting - far better.
No 'North Arrow' on the display screen - again on my previous Garmin I found the N-arrow very helpful in assisting sense of direction.
