iain, york Occasional user

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
size is good because you can see the screen clearly
Bad points:
have to keep resetting it after each destination,comes with a disc to set up for cameras and things which is as much use as a chocolate fireguard. cant update it therefore some roads dont exsist,too slow at telling you when to turn or where to come off roundabouts forever saying "make a u-turn now."aaarrrggg

kevin, woodley Always use sat nav

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Size thats about it really
Bad points:
Very slow to boot up,sometimes can take 20-30 mins, touch screen can be a little slow. The screen suction cup in my view is dangerous. Mine keeps falling off. I have cleaned the screen with IPA , vinegar etc and it still falls off after about an hour. I contacted the maker who were as helpful as Icelandic ash ans wanted to charge me for a new mount.

Conti, Morecambe

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I was completely blown away with every aspect of this SatNav and have only marked 'accuracy', 'value for money' and 'overall rating' as 9 and not 10 for the reason which I will explain below in the "Bad Points" section . . . . .
Bad points:
On a very recent journey from Essex back to Lancashire, the SatNav was slightly inaccurate due to recent road layout changes. A series of roundabouts had been removed along a stretch of main road which resulted in the SatNav warning that I was approaching roundabouts which are now not there. As a result of this I later tried to update the maps on the SatNav only to discover that the manufacturer has stopped producing SatNav's and therefore there are no updates available . . . . really disappointed !
