Absolute rubbish. It wouldn't pick anything up, so I ended up punching the thing repeatedly and breaking the screen. I then threw it out of the window and the car behind drove over it. Best place for the thing. Load of complete rubbish. (read more)

Having used a top of the range market leader for 3 years in my other car, I prefer to use this from the drivers point of view.

Good little sat nav. A shame they don't do traffic updates and only comes with the bare basics, but at £93 from Maplin this ViaMichelin Navigation X-960 is cheap and uses the same maps as TomTom. (read more)
