Mark, County Durham

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Large, clear screen that can be viewed in 2D or 3D.
Nice product with European maps and bluetooth.
Bad points:
The contacts list does not appear to sync with a Blackberry, although the Sat Nav still takes and receives calls ok via bluetooth.
The soft case supplied protects the product from scratches but a more solid version would help to protect the screen when it is not in use.
Would have prefered the on screen 'accept' and 'reject' icons to have been a lot bigger when taking calls - the small icons could distract the driver when trying to locate these.

Ease Of Use
Bad points:
Has been returned twice in 12 months for faults. Was diddled about getting free 09 map upgrades - Navman can't find a record of me registering for this so no upgrade as expected..

Martin, Darlington

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Nice clear display, lightweight.
Bad points:
Major bad point - the S70 3D takes far too long to find the current position from switch on, up to 5 or 6 minutes and sometimes more (works OK when it eventually finds the current position). Minor bad point, no 240v mains charge unit supplied.

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Big screen
Bad points:
Speaker is poor. When setting speaker high enough to hear it distorts the sound.
The On/Off/Reset switch is ridiculous. When switching off it's too easy to go another click and then it resets deleting all previous favourites.
The speed camera sound and the above set speed sound are very similar, easily confused. Cannot customize sounds.
Mapping data does not know speed limit of roads. TomTom map data does.
I sent keyboard to QWERTY layout. Sometimes it uses it, sometimes it goes back to ABCDEF layout.
I want the distance to DTG/ETE/ETA displayed all the time. It is always switching this off so I have to enable it again.
Battery life when not connected to power poor.
I tried connecting to my phone to use as handsfree via bluetooth. Device repeatedly crashed.

I had a TomTom basic model previously. This is cheaper, but far inferior. I would rather have my TomTom again.
