Philippa, Salisbury

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Good value for money if you are looking for a cheap sat nav. Will get you from A-B (sometimes using very *scenic* routes) Easily readable screen, useful "nighttime" mode.
Bad points:
Clunky design, problems with in-car charger, not always clear directions.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use once you have set it up although you need to delete some of the addresses it comes with. The first time you use the Garmin it takes an age to acquire the satelites but don't give up because it works eventually
Bad points:
Batteris run out really quickly so you are better using your cigarette lighter

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Highly recommended as a budget SatNav, easy to use and customisable with waypoints downloaded from CSV files on the internet, such as fuel stations, supermarkets, campsites etc. The only negative comment I have is that after just four months the Garmin has informed me my maps are out of date - a further download is avaialbe at cost from the internet. I won't bother for now, as it still fulfills my needs, but eventually a download will be needed - it would be nice to think this could be FOC for exisitng customers - surely our purchase funds the initial costs?

Bad points:
very strange mapping directions which seem to take the shortest possible routes, even if this is across tiny un-named roads. it got to the point where i returned the item and bought a tom tom.
