For the price this is a far better sat nav than the old Tom Tom XL that I was previously using. The clarity of the detail / instructions given on the screen make 99% of junctions easier to navigate. Even if you make a mistake, the unit quickly recalculates an alternative solution. This sat nav when first switched on is quick to find satellites to find its current location and is very easy to set up for the first time and to use on each occasion after that. When I first purchased this product, it arrived quickly and well packaged. The only issue that I have had was when I had to purchase the optional speed camera add-on, downloading the product off The Becker website was easy but the software / file system that was installed onto my PC did not match what was quoted on the instructions to install the speed camera option. My contact with Becker and it's sat nav providers partners website was not up to the quality of the product itself.

The BEST stand alone Sat Nav money can buy!!! Full UK postcode support, beautiful graphics in 3D, intuitive menu, a lot of options in settings! The only minus is that you have to download and install the speed cameras additionally. Once you get to know it you will forget the pathetic TomTom, Garmin etc. Sat Navs!!!!! Unlimited Lifetime Map Updates as long the device is in order. Small tip: put at least 16GB micro SD card to cope with the extra maps and software you want to install, in order to keep the device running smoothly! More options you include that may slow down the performance, but even then will do the job (probably bit slower). Great Value for Money! I have another one for my private car: BECKER Ready 50 SE and I do not want to hear about TomTom, Garmin, NavMan etc. A lot of people never heard about BECKER, even though in their Bentley's, Merc's, BMW, Audi etc. is integrated! And the company makes stand alone sat navs for the last 5-6 years. Anyway Great product! You can check at www.mybecker.com
