Written on: 02/01/2009

Contrary to other posts, my RA Navigator 7000 updates using Vista without a problem,
Use windows mobile device center 6.1! Download free from Microsoft.
I use my RA often and it is fine, biggest shame is that you cannot get up to date mapping even from RA.
POIs are pre-loaded and you cannot add from POI data sites i.e. Travelodge and so forth.
I looks like Tom Tom's domination will wipe out the opposition much like Apples ipod has done with mp3!… Read Full Review

“Road Angel are surely going to stop producing GPS...”

Written on: 10/10/2008 by garno (2 reviews written)

Road Angel are surely going to stop producing GPS navigation systems due to them not being able to compete. Dealers have even allegedly claimed that they can't do anything about the issues I had and refused a refund. So no more development on the Navigator 9000 and the mapping/routing company they dealt with has gone out of business.
My advice is go buy a Tom Tom… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/06/2008

The staff on the Road Angel helpline are very helpful, but they cannot overcome the basic problem that the machine cannot be updated with Vista equipped PCs, and the item is therefore totally useless.
You cannot subscribe using Vista, and if you don't subscribe it stops working… Read Full Review

If you do not have access to a computer running an older version of Windows then pay extra and get a more up to date model.

Written on: 08/03/2008 by philcc (1 review written)

I paid £499.99 for my Road Angel 9000 Navigator. When it arrived it appeared to be a 2nd user unit, it was scratched and had a broken windscreen mount. The mount was replaced with another cracked one! I paid an annual subscription up front, but the "live" updates are poor at best. It has now been back for repair due to a power and subscription issue, they pretty much confirmed my view regarding its original state. When I sent it off for repair, the components were individually wrapped and paced… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/01/2008 by tralcr (1 review written)

Like the other reviewer, I bought my Road Angel navigator less than 2 years ago. It started freezing all the time & I sent it back for repairs only to be told it was uneconomic to repair but I could pay a "special price" for an upgrade. Has anyone, I wonder, had their unit repaired once it has passed the year's warranty mark?… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/02/2007 by timgrace (1 review written)

I bought my Road Angel Navigator 18 months ago for £499.00. Just before Xmas I tried to locate the Sat Nav on the window mount and something broke inside. I sent the unit back for repair to be told it was uneconomical to repair and that they could supply me with a new one for £300+. 18 months use at £499.00 for an obviously poorly designed Sat Nav is totally unacceptable. I will never buy any Road Angel item again. What a complete waste of money… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/01/2007 by Cliff Edge (1 review written)

I got a sorted, working unit despite RA & their un-helpful desk. Reliability does appear to be an issue looking at other car forums, which is a shame as the concept is good. In one of my many conversations with RA they reminded me it was a "budget unit"... which as other systems have come down in price is no longer an excuse.
In summary, make sure your unit "mechanically works", give the software time to work between functions... zzz... & v2 sd card upgrade is a must!!!
& yes... after all my… Read Full Review

“Abysmal. I changed from my TomTom3 to the Blackspot...”

Written on: 05/11/2006 by Pingvin (2 reviews written)

Abysmal. I changed from my TomTom3 to the Blackspot Road Angel Navigator 6000 with the hope that I'd be getting a better system. Oh boy, was I sadly mistaken! The unit and build seem sound enough and setup was easy, taking only minutes to get "hot". I then thought that, knowing my way home 100% already, I'd give it a test - big mistake.

Spend your money and buy one or don't, either way I will give you one bit of advice....do not buy this, I'm cursing the day I did… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/10/2006 by tedphill (3 reviews written)

When my Blackspot Road Angel Navigator works, it works. Best pickup is if you don't move your vehicle until signal is picked up. It's very good for safety cameras and I like the cradle mount.

The customer service is excellent, very very helpful. My unit has been changed twice. The company gives first rate service, I just wish their product did as well… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/08/2006 by kujoy (4 reviews written)

In the few weeks I've been using Blackspot Road Angel Navigator, I've come across a lot a errors in the maps, many leading to being sent in the wrong direction. Biggest problem seems to be roundabouts. This unit seems to think many of them are just junctions, and then gives you totally wrong directions. Also had the map on the unit have the blue line you follow go in 2 directions at once when it got confused. Nightmare.

Im in the process of taking mine back to Halfords, but I need to have… Read Full Review
