Advantages: Voice Command, responsive touch screen
Disadvantages: Battery life
With this Garmin product map updates and traffic information are thrown into the bundle and remain free for the life of the satnav (unless Garmin see an opportunity to cash in). This is a major benefit when compared to competitors who charge one off or subscription fees for the same services. The device worked brilliantly, detouring through congested build ups of traffic saving me around 30 minutes from my journey (had I waited in the traffic). It is also very quick at updating, which is a bonus particularly if a wrong turn is made as the unit almost instantly re-calcuates a new route. The software included also allows for use accross the majority of europe which is great for those that require over-seas driving. This can also be updated to include countries further afield, however this comes at a premium and requires a subscription.
The voice command is such a bonus as it understands me clearly always getting the task correct saving me from 'messing' with the touch screen (which by the way is very responsive) creating a safer in drive experience than having to adjust a touch screen whilst driving. Use of the voice command also displays updated pictures of the route so there is no question as to whether you are on the correct route, you can easily see if you are or not. This is a fantastic addition as, in the past, satnavs have directed me on a route only to discover it was the wrong road miles later into the journey.
Inconclusion, this is a very useful product which will continue to take prime position on my dash board assisting me time and time again to arrive at my destination in the quickest most direct route available.
Summary: One of the best examples of sat nav technology
