4.0 out of 5 stars Good in a patchy way, 27 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Garmin nuvi 3598LMT-D 5" Sat Nav with UK and Full Europe Maps, Free Lifetime Map Updates, Free Lifetime Digital Traffic Alerts, Bluetooth with Magnetic Mount (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
This is much better then the older satnav it replaced. It has a more dynamic screen (touch sensitive enabling quick focus and expansion), traffic updates, a variety of useful information (like restaurants) that you can switch on or off and a generally good user interface. Decent hands free too. Sometimes the instruction to act is a bit delayed. It tends to leave you to get back on its route rather than to tell you how to get there. In the middle of London in narrow streets when the car starts off pointing in the wrong direction, that can be awkward. I don't think it always finds the best route. We live barely a mile and a half from the A4 leading to the M4, but instead of noticing that a longer route via the M4 and M25 would be quicker than cutting across the myriad streets of London we can find ourselves in painful urban journeys. Without an easy way to change. So it is liked but not loved
