You will see I have updated this review over a period of 16 months, so I have well tested this device , & would score it "0" if Amazon had a zero option! Terrible, poor, rubbish, bad, ..... it's just awful that stuff like this gets to market.
I spent an hour messing about to get the map update for Europe, the programming of the software is sloppy, so each step made me ask myself questions as to what was actually meant by the messages at each stage. After BACKING UP I downloaded the new map, to find not enough space, so was prompted to delete the map that came with the device. I did so (but I HAD backed up). The new map was bigger than the space available on the device! What a schoolboy error by Navman, you make an update that won't fit!! Excellent. To be honest I'm not surprised as all software is rushed out now, & nobody seems to have the job of Quality controller anymore, so stupidities happen pretty regularly on Satnavs , phones etc. I reinstalled the backup , & I'm back to where I was hours ago. Thanks Navman, nice start to the working week! Having written programmes I can see that the interface is just poorly done, & the writer assumes you know what he's thinking , & the phrases used often could be interpreted in different ways. The download does actually work, but the update doesn't fit...so I thought I'll put in a Micro SD card, but the Tourer does not have the ability to have a micro SD inserted (even though this is prompted by the install procedure).
I'll update this review as I use the device, but I'm guessing it'll be OK (see below to see that this wasn't the case , things just got worse!). Navman currently have "3rd position" apparently in the Satnav market.Read more ›
