I have had a satnav for many years and needed to update the maps. On looking on line I discovered that the R435 was only half the price of the new maps for my old satnav and has more functions anyway; brilliant
This Sat Nav may be basic but it does what is requied. Unfortunatly my first model broke but the company was very fast to replace it. This company is superb and I highly recomed them withour reservation
Nice slim design and very accurate so far. It picks up satelites in a heart beat ( longest time i had to wait on a cloudy crappy and typical irish day was 26 secs). The people that complain about button problems are people that cant wait the 3 seconds that it needs for it to be pressed and think that by pressing harder it will shorten that timeframe ... guess what ... it doesnt. Btw free maps for all around the world is an awesome feature as well. Last but not least its price is lower than what the brand ones charge for map updates ... so yeah all thumbs up
It was ok at first worked thats all I wanted problem being it did not continue too work and 7 weeks after purchase it would not turn on! Amazon won't take anything back after 30 days and for this reason will buy no major electrics from them again (though just purchased a carpet cleaner) as one has to contact the manufacturer which I have done and await response. also you cannot update the mapping with a MAC, and as I don't run any windows machine makes this device a total non runner for a Mac owner and a total non runner for reliability. AVOID, or at least buy from Argos! you pay a little more but you can take it back to the shop within the guarantee period and not just within 30 days, though under the sales of goods act shouldn't Amazon have replaced this product?
