ROBERT, ABERDEEN Always use sat nav

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
its a good hand held GPS system, but see bad points below.
Bad points:
the maps are no good for walking etc , as they are only road maps and the GPS maping system is no good off road, and no good for the purpose of hill walking , you then require the correct hill walking maps ie, 1.50,000, which is a extra cost , I replaced this GPS with a Adventurer 2800 system from MEMORY MAPS, so now have just what I required in the first place.
