Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good design small and slim.
Bad points:
Traffic Cams usless. Even when updated cameras that had been there for years didnt flash up.
Also make it very hard to load the free map update (latest map guarante). There is no information with the item on how to do this and try to push people in to paying for them. Look on the Tom Tom website for the full details. The free map update is hidden someware in TOM TOM home. Also when doing this be prepaired for a long night. i have a good moden computer with a high speed broadband and it took 4hr 30min to put the new map on. 30min to download and 4hrs to put onto the Sat Nav

Alan, Oxhill Always use sat nav

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
easy to use, accurate, showed up well in sunny conditions clear loud vocal instruction. I would have given it a whole hearted recommendation other than one feature.
Bad points:
In the dark in rain and an unknown town I ended up in Rouen France completely reliant on Tom Tom which proceeded to diect me and my caravan into a series of underpasses the fourth of which was too low for the caravan.
and wrecked the roof.

There is a big market for this system if it could be made caravan friendly and not direct caravans and commercial users down narrow lanes

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very workable size screen and easy to use and set up.
Bad points:
The wind screen mounting bracket, does not always stay in place. I have discovered though that if you wipe the area for the bracket is to adeher to with Metholated Spirit it seems to fix the problem
