Paul, Exeter Occasional user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Definitely recommend getting a satnav with its own SIM like this one, especially if travelling abroad. Tethering to your phone is a silly idea.

We've just come back from a road trip in our self converted camper, U.K. - Albania and everything in between. This sat Nav has been brilliant, helping us avoid traffic and therefore saving time, warning us about tolls, speed cameras, road works etc.

It doesn't work quote so well in Croatia, Montenegro, Bosnia & Albania, it didn't know about road works or traffic etc there and tried to take us down some dodgy roads.
After following it in Croatia, along a pot holes, dirt road with scary cliff edges, with nothing, to stop you being pushed off by the oncoming locals, who didn't seem to care, that the road wasn't big enough for two vehicles to pass each other...we learnt to ignore some of the turnings it wanted us to take and stay on the decent road we were on, until we got closer to our destination,
Bad points:
It reboots a 2-3 times when you switch it on.

It doesn't seem to be able to find landmarks/POI until you are close or in the area. Same with campsites etc, until we were close or in the area of the campsite, the satnav couldn't find it by name or address.

Claiming the promised £50 cashback has been nothing but a pain and after 2 attempts, still unsuccessful - so that is very annoying.

Philip, Banstead, Surrey Occasional user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I previously owned a 5 year old TomTom XXL which was excellent but didn't offer traffic updates. My new TomTom is a great i8mprovement
Bad points:
I didn't find it as intuitive to set up and use as my XXL and was a little intimidated by the 124 page user manual. I am now getting more used to it and find the traffic updates very useful. However, it is sometimes disconcerting when it replans my route as I am making the turn !!!
