“I haven't used other brands, so not sure if these...”

Written on: 01/07/2007 by mb14 (3 reviews written)

Good Points
Does the basic job well. Map is fairly accurate (it has gone wrong 1 or 2 times, but it's not bad).

Bad Points
Several small pain points which you get to know only once you start using. 1) It allows you to select your nearest POI (point of interest), it showed 12.5M in the list, but when I selected the POI, it recalculated the distance to 29.4M (fastest), even the shortest route showed 17M. 2) It does not display full destination name on the screen (if the name is long), e.g. Heathrow Terminals will show only as Heathrow Termin........., you then have to pick before you can see what you have selected. 3) Sometimes even if you select the option of avoiding toll route, it will keep showing the toll route, even when you try finding alternate and specify not to take toll route. 4) If you select a route detail, there is no option of going back to previous screen, you have to click done and start from beginning. 5) My holder keeps falling off the windscreen on its own, it can be quite distracting sometimes. 6) Does not show destination on screen once navigation starts. 7) Has lost voice sometime (not often), though it comes back easily on touch of screen.

General Comments
I haven't used other brands, so not sure if these problems occur with other brands as well. In all it disappointed me a little, as it fell below expectations.
