Good Points
Good size screen, scrolling maps real neat, speed cameras, price, PIO includes car parks, built in night time mode, good display, good software.

Bad Points
The instruction manual (not very clear) Takes forever to initialise (find the satellites).

General Comments
Every time I start a trip from a new location the Garmin Nuvi re-initialises, which makes the unit useless on short trips, you're halfway home before the sat nav starts working. I've used Tom-Tom and Route 66, both find the satellites within minutes.

If you are finding it takes ages to lock on (it did in my Peugeot 206), try getting an external aerial off ebay (~ £10) - lock on time went from ten minutes to about 10 seconds.
