I recently bought this product to help me in my work which often involves driving to meet clients and customers in unfamiliar towns/cities across the country. Being so bad with directions when asking, I bought this to a) save stress and b) save money on petrol.
How accurate is it?
You enter a postcode and can select specific streets. You can choose between shortest time and shortest distance; normally I go for shortest distance. The device tunes into an array of several satellites as can be seen from the configuration screen, and will direct you to your destination in the most direct route possible via minor streets rather than motorway, dual carriageway or main roads. So far it has successfully led me to my destinations without leading me up dead ends.
Ease of use?
It has a touch screen display with buttons on screen and it is very easy to use. Once the destination is programmed in you can just put it on the seat and it will talk you to your destination with a female voice.
One-off payment to purchase the device which comes with a car cigarrette-lighter charger and mount for your windscreen.
There is no monthly subscription!
A great investment for work and personal use which reduces stress in finding places in the car and because it can show you a direct route, it might even save on mileage.
