So I must admit that I am not the best when it comes to reading a map. So I invested in this Garmin about 4 months ago in part due to some recommendation but then price is really the fine determinant so I went with this over the tomtom as I was almost half price cheaper.... As it worked out its also half as good!!
Firstly user face, easy enough to input data but beyond that it is harder to change routes or avoid certain areas, I still haven't worked out how you add another location along the route and I'm sure there are many things it does that I don't know but I have all but given up on it at this point.
All of these user face issues I cold overlook if it was a good navigator.... But it's not I have lost signal so many times and been stranded in the middle of nowhere even Liverpool literally the middle of Liverpool how can you lose signal in the middle of a city.
I have had additional problems with the charger and had to send one back to get another replacement. This is a very poor sat nav and the worse I have to say it that it is so unreliable in times where you need it to be reliable if you are going to an event or to catch a flight you need something that will get you there.
Simply this unit will not!
