5.0 out of 5 stars Great unit with built-in Traffic Module 31 Aug 2009
Purchased this a couple of months ago, my first SatNav. I have used it for trips to Wales including remote parts of Pembrokeshire and to France, Belgium and Switzerland.

Hardware:
Solidly built unit with clear day and night display modes. Automatically switches to night mode when dark. Windscreen mount is solid and can be adjusted in all directions. A firm mount is important for touch screen operation. Touch screen works well and does not get finger marks. Scrolling by dragging works well and I didn't have any problem getting used to. The unit locks on to satellite quickly and stays locked. It starts up instantly from sleep mode. I never switch off. The in-car charger cable also works as the ariel for the traffic module.

Navigation Software:
Installed the NavDesk software (on the PC) found and recommended an update. Update was large but was quick over broadband. Updating the unit was straightforward.

Addresses are easy to find, either by postcode, street name or area. Takes you to the destination with turn by turn visual and voice instructions. Can switch to look at the overview map too. Text to Speech works reasonably well and even foreign street names are pronounced well. Explore area feature is useful and it's easy to find points of interest near any area, not just near where you are. Time To Go calculation is too optimistic. Snapshot button adds your current location to the bookmarks (My Places). Useful if you need to return to some place, but you don't know the postcode or the postcode covers the whole village. Used the 2D walking map a few times. Worked ok. Need to walk in one direction for a bit before it can workout the direction of walking. Used to get back to the hotel after wandering in the town in a new city.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just hope you never have a problem! 13 Nov 2009
I bought this item thinking it was the greatest thing since sliced bread but now I've come to find this unit and Navman are less than useful than sliced bread. Compared to other units I've used this is way to difficult, not in a technical way, but turning it on makes you go through country selection, accept this and that before it loads all the maps of Europe so by the time you've done all this you could be half way to your destination.

You will need to also play around, alot, with the positioning as the glare you get from the screen makes it useless to see when the sun it out which you just don't get on other units, thin and sleek it maybe but useless if you can't see the screen!

And as for Navman themselves, well if you want to buy a map for anywhere else fine but don't expect it work as Navman don't have the maps!!! They will take your money and provide you with a key but as for the maps themselves well Navman just don't have them so watch out if you want maps for the USA! Navman's customer services attitude is one of just can't be bothered well just refund you in a week or so, nice!

So to conclude, if you want a thin SatNav to use in the countries that are supplied and also where the sun never shines then go for this little beauty otherwise go with one of the big boys as they are big for a reason they're better and you get better services from them.
