Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA) is a service Amazon offers sellers that lets them store their products in Amazon's warehouses, and Amazon directly does the picking, packing, shipping and customer service on these items. Something Amazon hopes you'll especially enjoy: FBA items are eligible for and for Amazon Prime just as if they were Amazon items.
I am pretty dim in many ways, but perhaps most of all in relation to technology.I was very concerned that I would not be able to get this product working.My concerns were justified when the blasted thing would'nt work at all and I sent it back. The next one arrived and hey presto it worked. It is actually as near as you can get idiot proof.Trust me ,I am that technology idiot.It is easy to use and it gets you where you need to be.I've used it to get me around the north of Enland and the Scottish borders and I never got lost which is a first. I bought it to take on a driving holiday to Latvia and Lithuania which should prove to be a sterner test for the device.I will edit this review and let you know how it performs in the Baltic states in a couple of months.I am pleased with the product, the first one was just duff and there was no problem with the exchange. This will give you a sense of direction in your life.Don't just drift around aimlessly get a Garmin. Update Worked really well in Lithuania and Latvia. We got lost in Vilnius but that is because of the one way system which is mightily confusing. Worked also in Spain.It is dead straightforward to use. Best wishes customers.

I've now got three Garmins (too many cars!) and I bought this one to use with a 1950's classic car, that I don't want to use too much on the motorway. This model can be set to automatically select non-motorway routes and seems to do the job very well. Good signage for fixed and mobile speed cameras and the usual good audio warning from Garmin, which allows you to keep your eye on the road, while hearing if you're over the speed limit in a camera zone. I'm taking it to France soon, so will add further comments when I've checked it out there. It's supposed to give you "legal" camera danger zone signals and I'll see how that goes and how the routing goes in France. My first Garmin, a few years ago, was hopeless for logical routes in France, but I'm hoping this will now have been improved.
EDIT 22/05/13 Well, I've had this thing for about three months, and it's a long time since I tore my hair out like this! We took this little beastie to France, only to discover that the French map doesn't exist! So, luckily we knew our way pretty much (800 miles!) and managed to do it without a sat nav (or maps!) Funnily enough, we left it plugged in during the journey and it told us each time we entered a "danger zone" for speed cameras, but all it said was "you're heading south" or - on the way back - "you're heading north". I've been round the block so much with the hopeless Garmin "help" system that I just about give up. I've just sent them an email (finally the Garmin system let me do that, rather than keep offering "have you tried?" suggestions). I'll re-edit this if they manage to fix it. BUT - no one should have to go through this farce in this day and age. Customer service - Pa! One Star!Read more ›
