No fuss...great for busy technophobes!
on 13 July 2010
I was bought this model for my birthday as i am not the most advanced when it comes to gadgetry(understatement). Basically i was regularly getting lost on long journeys while using printed directions from the various map sites. I digress a tad. Right! **INSTRUCTIONS** Plug the NUVI 215 into the in-car power socket and wait for it to find a satellite. This is a one time only thing and then you are ready to go!! It's that easy. Inputting destination is easy and it gives you the option to save etc etc etc.
The screen on this particular model is very clear and gives you a multi zoom in and out option always displayed.
There is an eco-route option which i plan to use on my next journey. If you are a bit of an explorer, there is a points of interest function, petrol station, hospital etc etc etc. You can add detours, add a stop en-route. The screen is not cluttered with useless information and a shedload of funky icons.
Ooooh there's a bluetooth thingy.........whatever that is.
Comes with a car charger and windscreen suction mount which does it's job perfectly.
Basically, if you want a Satnav that does NOT come preloaded with Encyclopedia Brittanica and can trim your nasal hairs above 60mph etc etc etc......but want a sat nav that is simple to use, concise, clear and functional, this is the one. I am a proud technophobe and this is well within my capabilities. When you go online to update software and maps etc.....it's childs play (which suits me) The price is good.....in fact, it's all good, i'm impressed!!
