With a simple touch screen interface, automatic route calculation to any destination, and turn-by-turn voice-prompted directions, the StreetPilot c320 GPS navigator is a powerful companion for your adventures on the road. Plus, Garmin has designed the "c-series" of car navigation units to be as simple and easy to use as possible-- no more intimidating features, just straightforward, basic navigation at your fingertips. Selecting a destination is as simple as a few finger-strokes, and you can choose between a three-dimensional navigation view or the more traditional "bird's eye" overhead view.
Although the c320 boasts distinctive and sleek styling, simplicity is the name of the game. The only buttons are a rotary volume knob and an on/off switch. The device is secured by a suction-mount cradle that fastens to the windshield for easy portability between vehicles. You can customize the unit's appearance with an array of colored faceplates that are sold separately.
For navigators who only require detailed maps for a limited area, the StreetPilot c320 features an SD card slot, a 128 MB SD card, and MapSource City Select street data on CD-ROM. To load the area you need, simply select the specific area of interest on your computer and the data is transferred from a PC to the unit via a fast USB connection. The c320's bright, 3.5-inch diagonal, 16-bit color display makes navigation a snap. The unit also features dual integrated speakers for high-quality voice prompts, and an internal lithium-ion battery for out-of-car route planning.

I opted for the Garmin as I've been pleased with their rock solid reliability in the past and the unit looked a bit smaller than the TomTom - but for me the killer was that the unit came with pre-installed maps of the UK AND Ireland - so for my journey from Belfast to London via Dublin, it could handle the whole route in one go. Additionally, you get a CD with route maps for most of Europe and software which makes it a doddle to choose which maps you want loaded on the (supplied) 256MB SD card.
Out of the box, it couldn't be easier. The unit arrives fully charged and so it's a case of turn on, wait for the GPS satellites to be acquired and then bang, up comes a lovely map of where you are. Once you mount it in the car, it actually comes on and turns off automatically with the ignition - but don't forget to lock it in the glove box when you leave the car!
To enter a destination, you can choose from the preloaded points of interest such as fuel stops, shopping centres, visitor attractions, restaurants and so forth. A handy feature, but I suspect 99% of the time you will be entering your own address to navigate to ... and therein lies the Garmin's only real Achilles heal; NO POSTCODE entry.
Now I actually knew this BEFORE I bought, and still went for the Garmin despite knowing the TomTom does have postcode entry for UK addresses.Read more ›
Other GPS units I have used get confused when it is in central London, but not this. It knew exactly where it was. I always had more then 4 bars of reception in London.
The directions (both voice and graphics.) given were clear and easy to follow. And surprisingly timely, always giving me instructions early enough so I could prepare. (I have used a GPS before and it gave me the direction to turn after I have missed the turning.).
Finding places of where I wanted to go was easy, although it could have benefited from a Post code finder. Route calculation was quick, usually done with in 10 seconds. This also applies when you go off route. It will know, and recalculate the new route just as quickly.
As per all GPS, there were times that the map data were just out of date and did not include streets that were blocked off recently, but it was a matter of two taps on the screen to get me back on track.
Finally, this is one of the most useful gadget/tool I have EVER used!!! Really makes me wonder how I have survived without it!!!
The only thing that is lacking is the ability to select 'major roads only' which would be relevant if you're towing a caravan.
The maps provided cover everything I could possibly want in Europe and are all unlocked for use.
It is simple to set up with maps for mainland GB and Ireland pre-loaded. Updates are available once the unit has been registered. Destination setting is straightforward, but the only reason that it fails to get the full 5 stars is the lack of a postcode search facility: here, the unit betrays its American origins. However, it will find any destination to within a few yards, and represents good value for money. Sometimes overhanging trees or tall buildings will cause the satellite signal to drop out, but never for more than a few seconds. Highly recommended.
The other added bonus i have on this unit this is the whereabouts of every speed camera, gatso and mobile speed trap in the uk which is easily downloaded onto the c320 from the internet.
Also you can lend the GPS to your friends and family or move it from car to car!
