Binatone S500 UK and ROI 5in Sat Nav

 

I purchased this for my Daughter to help her in her job. She is very pleased with it and finds it better than a tom tom that she had borrowed. She also uses the Bluetooth for her phone which she finds very good..

great sat nav

 

Really good value for money. Some really sophisticated features on this sat nav such as bluetooth which you can pair with your phone. Only reason not giving iit 5 is that is does need updating as some of the latest road changes have not been updated.

waste of money

 

The product doesn't help with getting into lanes when approaching junctions on a motorway where the road splits away i.e going from 3 lanes to 1 off the motorway and 2 staying with the motorway or at a major round about.
