I've commented on another reviewers with regards to this i3 but in general you'll find it a tedious thing to use. Journey route is crazy most of the time so get as close to your destination as you can before listening to the directions. only recognises 5 digit post code so not accurate just on that alone, maps aren't up to date even after recieving an update disc from garmin free of charge which is very goods service, tho it came all the way from america and took 6 weeks! Lol. I take it Garmin are based in America then? Im in the uk and itr was a uk and eurpoe map i had installed.
TBH, i wouldn't recommend this product even after owning it for 3-4years, 90% of the time its been wrong on routes, and drives you mad! Tho as long as you use your knowledge to get close to the destination then thats where this sat nav works best as it sorts out the final details to your destination. But be prepared for many wrong and late directions.
Im now looking at buying a new sat nav up to £150 to replace this one as we hate using the thing for journays now.
