Better than nothing!
Poor Directions, Very Quiet Voice, Takes you on and off motorways at service stations and restricted exits (EG works exits)
I have a Tom Tom One and my girlfriend has a NavMan 520i. What a world of difference! The Tom Tom is excellent and gets you where you are going quickly, and efficiently. It also has a choice of fastest, shortest, avoid motorways and walking routes. The graphics are clear and the voice very audible! The NavMan is the opposite - I used it for 2 weeks and could take no more. It had me going up dirt tracks to motorways, off a bridge onto the M25 (30 feet below), off at restricted works exits. It struggles to get you to the general area, nevermind to the door. DO NOT BUY ONE. I am trying to get my girlfriend to sell hers and buy a Tom Tom or one of the new Sony's! PS I do over 10,0000 miles a year and use Sat Nav every day - I could only take about 4000 miles with the NavMan. In summary the Tom Tom saves you loads of time and money. The NavMan is better than nothing (or even just a map) but only just!
