“waste of money”

Written on: 26/06/2014 by FIREFOX19712485 (1 review written)

I bought this RUBBISH back in 2009 when i passed my test, thought i was getting a deal if i remember back then think i paid about £60 takes ages to load and it takes you on the wrong route wrong directions and its not loud at all. when you first past you test you want something reliable and that doesnt knock your confidence, never used it again til i dug it up out of the cupboard and thought give it a go as i need it for driving, and the same old RUBBISH doesnt work. Well i will try to get rid… Read Full Review

“POOR FORSIGHT IN SAT NAV TECNOLOGY”

Written on: 25/07/2012 by Deno4146 (1 review written)

Good quality product. Ideal GPS when purcased,good for the job at the time ,But the amount of changes on the roads now and not being able to obtain any updates for this SatNav seems to me a total waste of money. Why have binatone not been able to come up with updates for this product instead of bringing new GPS sytems out to make more money. Regards Mr Brian Deeny… Read Full Review

“Good basic Sat Nav - Does what it says on the tin ”

Written on: 20/02/2012

I bought this sat-nav back in 2009 just before i went on holiday, i have had it about 3 years now, and in that time it has got me to a few different holiday locations without any problems, There has been a few times when it has wanted to take me the long way round but i just ignored it lol I paid about £70 for mine, and i think it has been worth every penny, it is quite smart in design and not too big, overall a good little basic satnav to start with. The only problems i would give it… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/02/2010

I can't understand the positive reviews for this sat nav.

It takes FOREVER for this unit to get a signal - so if you buy it, make sure you're never in a hurry to get anywhere (I live in London, by the way, not the Hebrides).

Also if for any reason you cannot take the route it suggests, the words "CALCULATING ROUTE" pop up, and the screen freezes for ages while it decides on an alternative direction.

When this happens, the best you can say about it is that it is frustrating and… Read Full Review

“We have been to spain and used the Binatone Carrera A350. ”

Written on: 23/09/2009

We have been to spain and used the Binatone Carrera A350.
resonably good until you get into the mountains then it is not happy.
The unit canot find the way to go so it then wants to take you to the spot it lost you. So you go round and round in circles.
Also going to the airport to come home i set it to Alicanti and the point of interest was the airport it took us to the airport but said and wanted to take us another 23 km. give Binatone the due as we had just bought the unit they sent me an… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/06/2009 by Richard Eliasz (1 review written)

I found the Binatone GPS Nav system very good. In fact I would put them up with other leading brands such as Garmin, Navman ect.
Very easy to use, it gives clear distinct voice instructions, clear screen without the fancy colors displayed on other brands. I believe a GPS is for getting you for point A to point B without the stress of reading a malways which in my book is privative. I would like to see them make a GPS for motorcycles… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/12/2008

I do not understand how this product has got such good ratings, possibly the area I am in but have only ever tried to use for long distance.
Even though I have completely updated it... still;
Many times has sent me to a cul-de-sac and told me to drive on for however many miles.
Suddenly decides it ' s in the wrong place.
Has occasionally sent me left when the screen clearly shows a right.
On my way to chertsey managed to direct me off the motor way and through a offroading lane leading to… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/11/2008

It's a really good unit. Have owned Sony, Garmin and all the main brands, but none (that I've owned) have been as quick, accurate, easy to use, slim and compact, and generally as good as this Binatone model.
Dont spend wasted cash on branded models, when for a mere fraction of the price you could get this Binatone. It's really good. I use it for work driving to mutli locations (the most being about 20 locations one after the other, and I did the locations with ease, ....and was home by 2pm… Read Full Review

Yes, but how do you update maps/speed cameras? There appears to be no mechanism to do this from Binatone

Written on: 19/09/2008

The Binatone Carrera A350 is definetly worth a look if you don't need any fancy features such as bluetooth. Sometimes the GPS can place you as much as 200m off course which triggers constant re-routes if you're navigating. This has only happened to me once or twice, but is very annoying. Great menus, easy read screen and a nice voice make up for it.
At £69.99 it's fantastic!… Read Full Review
