Customer Review

VINE VOICEon June 21, 2011
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.
