Good

 

I have had 2 of these units for 3 years and have had no problems with them. Ocasional re-set required ,the odd turn left into nowhere,but generally fantastic i especially like that when you zoom in to below 500ft you will then see dirt road and fire...

Portable versatile easy to use.

You can't see fire trails when you are above 500 ft zoom. A bit slow to pick up Sats (old tech) "Big deal" Stick out antenna

OK

 

Being a first time user of a pocket PC and GPS, I'm relatively happy. For anyone on the go wanting to access contacts, excel spreadsheets and word documents it is great. GPS seems to work fine, however doesn't always seem to be the most "direct" route...

Not a bad unit. Huge screen. For anyone using pocket work and excel for the first time it is surprinsling easy to navagiate around the system. GPS fix very solid even when in a moving car being held by passenger or sitting on seat without the built in...

Poor support from Navman - won't return phone calls or emails. Instructions are very unclear and user is left guessing in a lot of cases. Software can be difficult to understand. 4 way toggle switch can be difficult to use accuratley. Non removable...

Great intergrated solution (No seperate GPS receiver). Kits comes with carry case, memory card, all the software you need and the mounting kit for the car. Great price. Has come up with some great innovative travel routes that have shaved quite a few...

Does everything the other more expensive Navman products do but is also a Windows PDA which means you can sync it with Outlook, it has a diary, play MP3s, even movies (just copy the file to a SD memory card and insert it). Comes with 3D maps of all of...

Sometimes the Navigation program mucks up and the unit needs to be reset (you don't lose any data on a reset). Maps aren't as up to date as the latest street directory. Sometimes takes a while to find satellites when switched on.
