i used this sat nav for the first time today and it reilly was helpful in many ways to make me a safer driver. although the only reason i had it was for the live traffic updates which worked reilly well and also the speed camera warnings was great also.
i had a becker which I think is the best sat nav maker out of all of them but didnt have the traffic on it.
this is very reliable with postcode search and is accurate in its destination. reality view is very good also.
i found the touch screen is slighlty unresponsive sometimes and looks cheap compared to my becker which looked professional and quality.
its very quick to catch on to the satelites and the tmc is quick to work. although to get the options that u want is confusing if you dont know anything about sat navs or your not technical. the seeting for the tmc traffic is hiding in settings, then traffic, then options.
i only found out that by looking through all the options. otherwise you wouldnt know it was there the sound is very good, nice and clear, camera warnings are clear and the traffic anouncments are clear also even though its short.
the 2 year maps free guarantee is great and 1 years camera updates.
overall its a great product for the money. i think its better than a tomtom. u have to buy this even if its for the free traffic for life. its got most things on this that a tomtom has but for half the price.
the tmc is built in to the cigarette lighter charger so no need for extra modules like the tomtom. you also have the option of automaticaly re routing when there is traffic or you can do it manually.
