The only good point is the size
Very slow in picking up inital position
Maps out of date
Loses position very easily
I bought a stand alone Sat Nav instead of using organisers with an attachment. The Navman 520i is a complete waste of money. I have nearly thrown the thing out of the car window in frustration at its lack of directions/wrong direction/losing signal.
For example it can take up to 15 minutes to get a GPS Signal and position. The unit will try take you on and off Motorways via Bridges and motorway service areas! In one case I was told to turn left, turn right perform a you turn - all while stationary in the centre of London.
I have tried performing an upgrade in Software to see if these problems would be solved - alas no and I now have an American voice advising me to take the first left at the traffic circle!
I would advise anyone considering the product to take a very large detour around it and get a Tom Tom One - which is a cheaper quicker and far superior product.
