2.0 out of 5 stars Good features but......., 19 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Navigon 40 Easy 4.3" Sat Nav with Western Europe Maps (Electronics)
This looked really promising. The ability to chose between a number of routes with distance and estimated time shown is great. However for some reason the Navigon ignores some roads resulting in much longer journeys than necessary. On the roads near my home it chooses a route which is over a mile longer. It would be understandable if the alternative to the unclassified road was an A road or B road but it isn't, it's identical. If it does this with roads I know, what confidence can I have that it is taking me the best route when I don't know the roads? It is also not good at re-calculating the route when you veer off course or choose a better route. The worst example of this resulted in a distance saving of 17 miles when it finally worked out the route that I intended to use, a saving of about 50%. The unit itself is very slim and easily transported, but this means that the sound is really tinny which makes the sound of the female voice grate. The alternative "Godfather" voice is apalling. I stood it for less than a minute before turning it off. Come back TomTom, all is forgiven!(Well most of it)
