Disadvantages: None so far
After resisting the sat nav faze I finally relented and purchased this Navman F45 and am I glad that I did. It's a really smart, sleek little sat nav with a touch screen for navigation. The various settings are easy to play around with, so in no time at all I was out on the road not having to glance at a map. It's a typical sat nav with voice commands, you can choose male or female, that tell you when to turn or merge etc. The maps are really clear and the arrow tracks along with you as you drive. You can pick different settings for the maps, so you can have time to distance, distance travelled or distance to travel as just some of the options.
The unit comes with the standard in car charging, which goes into the cigarette lighter, but we also found that one of our phone chargers works for in house charging (it was a Motorola charger). The battery does last for quite a while though, so don't worry if your car doesn't have a cigarette lighter, mine lasted for 6 hours before it finally gave up the ghost and needed charging again.
I've found that the maps are very accurate and I haven't managed to get lost at all since I bought this. I like how easy it is to input data and to save that data. You don't even need to have a postcode to enter a place into the sat nav, although it does help. The unit is very quick at getting the maps set up when you do enter the data and there are regular updates you can buy and download from the Navman website. But the absolute best thing about this sat nav is that it's very small and so can fit easily into my handbag when I need to take it out of the car when I have finished driving!
Summary: A great sat nav that will stop you getting lost when out and about in your car!
