Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Garmin NuLink! 2340 4.3" Sat Nav with UK and Western Europe Maps, Live Services and Traffic, and Bluetooth (Electronics)
Bought this for a few reasons as I already have a TomTom Go Live 1005 . First it gives me another sat nav for using on another vehicle . Secondly I read it uses google maps and is a lot better than TomTom for finding actual addresses plus has business addresses . Only just got it and set it up but it located my sister's address with no problem whereas on my TomTom it says number not found and you have to go by nearest number . Like many people looking more for bargains nowadays and not latest technology but still wanted Live services . This was a warehouse deal on an older model but looking good , I might go for the latest Garmin some time in the future if this proves better than my TomTom . Found touch screen a little bit hit and miss as sometimes you need to press harder/softer on screen to get a reaction and on screen keyboard the same . After having the TomTom 1005 I find the screen very small , that said I can remember 3.5 inch sat navs when they first came out . Every Tuesday I do deliveries in London and my TomTom gets utterly confused when you have to change route for any reason or there is traffic congestion . It will be interesting to see how the Garmin reacts to London traffic . Sorry it is not more detailed but only just got it . Definitely look at a Garmin or similar if your job etc. entails looking for addresses or business addresses . Had seen horror stories of how long this took to download maps etc. on first set up but I got through it in about 3 hours . Vaguely remember TomTom takes a time as well . This comes with Western European maps but when downloading it says unless I use SD card etc. it cannot do all the maps so I just went for UK and Ireland maps which it could handle without SD card .
