5.0 out of 5 stars Best GPS I have used, 17 April 2007
This review is from: Viamichelin Navigation X-980T Europe 2 GB (Electronics)
I have used two different Navman models and thay have been 3 out of 5 stars. Part down to the fact a local petrol station on both were marked as being a couple of miles out of the town where a Windmill is.

The text to speech is really good as it announces the street name and junction number on the motorway. It can take some getting used too when to tells you to get in lane when you may not need too.... all depends how the junction is shown on the maps.

The diagrammatic split screen works really well and is a big help on traffic islands to give a better impression of the exit. Others that give give the exit number don't really help you to decide which lane you may need as the first exit could be half way around the island.

Motorway mode works well, in that the unit switches to an 'overview' map when it's more than 20miles to the next instruction and returns to the navigation view when your about 4 miles away. Handy as you know your getting closer.

You also get Fixed Speed camera alerts with the speed announced, you can import your own and get a beep, on a positive note the guide overrides the beep, this is unlike Navman which would beep and then not give the rest of the instruction.

As an added bonus you get the guide contents for hotels and tourist places and they are offering a Map upgrade along with other 'extras' to come later this year. Looking at the website they are planning to provide Weather information via the Bluetooth connection. Which BTW works well as a handsfree kit, not sure how well it works when navigating.
