Joe, London

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Clear map views
Fairly quick to recalculate route.
Light weight.
Car charger, USB cable and mounting bracket are included.
Very good size of the screen.
Blue tooth connection to my Nokia N95 was very easy and works a treat
Bad points:
Battery life on each charge. The unit start to give "low battery" warning after only about 60 mts of use.
Colours are not deep enough.
There is no button in the "keyboard" for putting in a "space" character while putting in Post Codes - the unit works out for itself but can mislead into frustration, until the whole of the post code is put in, which is then correctly spaced by the unit. E.g. While putting in TW18 1BA, the unit responds by first showing TW1 1 when only TW1 is put in. This led to aborting the entry to again with the same frustrating result. But if after putting in TW1, one continues to put in the rest of the code, 81BA, the unit automatically corrects to TW18 1BA.
The unit already had the camera information loaded in and VALIDATED. This was not clear from the enclosed information, which seemed to suggest contacting Navman to obtain validation. I had to contact Navman via email to get this information.
