I recently purchased this after my TomTom XL broke with the white screen of death.
First impressions are good: The Good +Much thinner than TomTom but screen size the same +Menu uncluttered by needless items I never used +Comes with a great windscreen mount - my tomtom was always falling off +PC Lead and Lead for car as standard +Lane Select (great 'new' feature for me) +Picture of motorway junction as you approach (very neat)
The Bad - Main display only displays 2 bits of data at once from a number of options e.g. Distance, time, time remaining, distance covered, elevation. I would like to see more. - No Bluetooth - I didnt really use it but now seems to be only available on more expensive satnavs whereas before my mid range model had it. More of a gripe rather than a criticism against this model.
All in all I wasnt prepared to pay £200+ for the fancy models, and I wasn't yet ready to rely on my smartphone for in-car navigation. Hopefully this sat nav will last 3+ years by which time I am sure technology will have moved on so that we will be able to use smartphones for navigation. Until then I am sticking with specialist products.
