A great product released from Garmin with pros and cons to it.
It has a very large 5 inch display which i think is the largest gps screen size released, very easy to see. It has a special feature of juntion view, this is when arriving at a junction which has multiple lanes, a picture of the junction and an arrow directing your route appears, Very useful. There is this added feature which i've not seen before, ecoroute, this asks you to give your data on mpg of your car, and the price of petrol, this then calculates your average miles per gallon and tells you how much fuel in pounds and liters you have used in a specified amount of time, also more additional features are included in this application eg, if your driving is eco friendly or not etc. It has a very good suction mount, the sat nav i had previoulsy used to fall off randomly whilst driving.
The juntion view doesn't seem to pop up on all junctions, only occasionally. I've noticed that once i was driving on a dual carridgeway, and the speed limit was 70 but the gps was showing 60.
overall it is good i would give it 4 out of 5
