Pete, Wellingborough Tow a caravan.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very clear display, both day and night. Lots of features. Easy to get the basics going.
Bad points:
You have to agree to the disclaimer every time you use it - a real pain. The touch screen does not always react (I have largely overcome this problem by using a stylus from Nintendo DS) Some of the less used functions do need a bit of learning - it's not ever so intuitive.

Score 2.0/10
Good points:
Its very quick to pick up satelite signals

The re-routing is quick if you decide to or accidentally go off the route it is taking you
Bad points:
The touch screen is way to fiddley; quite often on the main menu you touch to select something but it will scroll the page down.
The unit seems to have an inability to hold a charge and randomly turns itself off even if it is plugged in
