“I bought the X350 as a backup to my TomTom. ”

Written on: 09/02/2011

I bought the X350 as a backup to my TomTom.

What a disappointment. At maximum volume the voice sounds like a canary in a tin can and is still almost inaudible at high speed.

Finding sats is slow as is route calculation and updating of the route as you drive. Unlike the TomTom, selection of routes is tortuous and omits to show roads linking to the selected route which is confusing.

The package only lacks a road map which will surely be needed if you select this device.

Written on: 11/07/2009 by Papafola (1 review written)

I bought Binatone Carrera X350 on sale at Argos for £69 in March 2009. I should have been tipped off by the fact that it was on Argos No Return list.

It got me lost on numerous occasions, difficult and slow to load and often very inaccurate. This is my 6th SatNav, first and last Binatone. Awful awful… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/06/2009

Love the Binatone Carrera, did'nt cost much, you can run other gps software on it as it's a Windows CE5 device, just get a 2gig SD card and copy the windows explorer.exe file to the root of the card.
There is a lot more info on the web if you search for it.
Anyone who runs this device down is a fool… Read Full Review

The Binatone Carrera X350 is a very poor sat nav even for the money . Consistently tries to take us from A roads onto cart tracks . I bought it for use when towing the caravan , but the best use for it is as a coaster for my tea when we arrive after navigating with a map… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/03/2009

The Binatone Carrera is cheap, reliable, easy to you and if you know what you are doing, you can ditch the onboard software and run Tomtom 7 on it instead! It also plays Mp3s if you install a player and some music onto an SD card, bargain! Can take some time to get a satellite fix when used from cold, onboard software can be hit and miss, woman's voice irritating and too many commands! for the money, bargain!… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/03/2009

I think the Binatone Carrera X350 is okay for around £40 but anything more and I'd stick with a map and a post it note until tom toms are virtually given away. I'ts a windows ce platform hence you can forget the stuff on it and install tom tom with about 30 mins surfing (apparently) ;-)

Written on: 06/02/2009

Binatone Carrera X350 is neat cheap and pretty much does what it says on the box. Not nearly as good as a tom tom but also not nearly as epensive The Silly woman tells you to go right but the picture says straight on - if in doubt follow picture not the voice!
Also the post code finder is pretty rubbish..... okay totally rubbish. It is okay but wish I had splashed out more on the tom tom… Read Full Review

The Binatone Carrera X350 got me from Gloucestershire to Liverpool with total ease. Put it onto 3D setting and it was a doddle! Being an apprentice i have a small budget for luxury items, so for such a small price this unit was ideal!
Definatley worth the money i paid (somewhere between £40 and £50) Highly recommend this… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/12/2008 by Wyn (1 review written)

The Binatone Carrera X350 is a nice small hand held pocket sat nav which may not be set up properly for my use, as I've only just bought it and yes I did read the instruction manuel first. It fits well in the cars I drive but the power cable would be better if it coiled.
For the price and operation it appears to be good value. I still have my reciept and packageing!… Read Full Review

“It's a nice unit that's worth more for what you pay....”

Written on: 22/12/2008

It's a nice unit that's worth more for what you pay. Appears to have a great deal of listings for attractions in my area amonst other things. Compared to some of my other sat navs in the past, this one definately gets less baffled and seems to be steady and accurate. The only issue is that the files on my sd card became corrupted when adding pictures (showing invalid navigation on the unit), so had to wipe the card and restore the files with the disk provided. No further issues after that… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/11/2008 by the pilot (1 review written)

I used it recently to navigate to a golf course in the middle of nowhere. It was bang on with its target and I had no idea where it was. The google route which I used as a comparison was a nightmare.
Remember folks, its a cheap navigational aid, not an autopilot.
Its good enough if you use it in conjunction with good driving like planning ahead and reading traffic signs in good time… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/10/2008 by helenlbw (1 review written)

Trying to get back to Liverpool from Pwllheli...what a nightmare. Two young children in the car I had entered the shortest route which took me to the back of beyond (A4407) along dirt tracks that seemed to go nowhere, no houses or villages in sight for miles. Luckily I eventually found a couple of houses where the residents kindly gave me directions which I followed (I left my sat nav on out of interest which would of took me in a totally different way, luckily I ignored it and got home safely)… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/10/2008

I wanted to go from SW London to N London via M3 and M25. My Binatone X350 insisted on navigating me through central London and did not reroute even after I was on the M25 heading North. Kept telling me to get off the motorway and drive to London.
Also, at the junction M3/M25 it dit not recognize the fork where the M25 splits into South and North. It said "follow this road for a while."
After having made a left turn, it kept telling me to make a left turn. Some announcements for roundabout… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/09/2008 by Workmanager (1 review written)

I think the lack of commitment on Binatones behalf should be a warning to any would be purchasers. 6 month free speed cameras included and despite numerous emails all I can get out of Binatone is a zip file which will extend the free trial forever at a cost of £10 that is if you can get through to them on the phone, but I cannot get them to state if and when updates for maps or cameras will be available… Read Full Review

I would look at others before purchasing a Binatone Carrera X350. It seems to have the poorest GPS coverage of all sat navs, consistently dropped out when friends maintianed coverage. Maps seem outdated and the routes not as intelligent as I would expect… Read Full Review
