5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing value, 2 July 2013

This review is from: 5.0 Touch Screen WinCE 6.0 GPS Navigator w/ FM/TF/Europe Map (4GB)+British Standard (Electronics)
Had an old Navman unit that required a £39.99 upgrade for European maps. Decided to go for this as it's through amazon so could send back and was £42 anyway. Only had use of the sat nav menu first, and tested it on known routes and I see no difference from the £100 units on the market with brand names. Yes the maps are a bit "clunky" but all the detail and spoken instructions are spot on, and lets be fair that's all you really need on a sat nav. My unit has no slider to change the backlight intensity which is a bit frustrating on a bright sunny day, but just angle it down a bit and you're away. As previously mentioned in earlier reviews the instructions are limited but with a bit of practice you get the hang of the unit. Not used all the other functions yet ( movie player / music / internet ) but based on the performance of the navigation I can't see that will be a problem. Put it this way Garmin and Tom Tom units with comparable functions just on the navigation are 3 times as much let alone all the other bits this unit has. Be aware it took three weeks to arrive but with home charger and car charger included in the price just get one.

2nd September 2013.
Recently used the above product to travel through Belgium to Germany and then back through france. I'm now even more happy with the purchase as it behaved impeccably , re-routing when needed and also being extremely practical as we used the pedestrian feature in unfamiliar towns. Never ever buy Tom tom etc when for £85 less than the same specification you can have this.
