Premature final voice prompts.
There are a couple of minor irritations with the Garmin Nuvi 310 - like having no on-screen view of the direction of the next turn. Garmin Sat Navs are virtually alone in not having this facility.
There is one very serious problem with this device, however, and that is that very very frequently, outside of urban areas, the final voice prompt of 'Turn Left' or 'Turn Right' is given too early at 0.2 miles prior to the required junction - and often when there is another, unwanted junction, between the point at which the 'Turn' command is given and the the one you actually want. There are no additional prompts after this one given at 0.2 miles and that is far too early. Unless you keep your eyes on the screen and wait until the pointer reaches the white 'turn' arrow, you will frequently find yourself taking wrong turnings if you rely on the voice prompt alone.
