      Very helpful



      A great sat nav with no fancy/flashy extras.

      The Navman F50 was the first sat nav i ever bought, and still own.
      The unit is quite pleasing to look at being a gun metal colour with little flecks in it.
      The navman logo in the middle of the top of the unit.
      The unit has UK and Ireland maps pre installed on it along with safety cameras. But due to it being oldish now these would need updating!
      There is obviously the large touch screen and to the right of this a number of buttons.

      The first is a petrol pump - Pressing this will give you quick easy access to near by petrol stations. This is all well and good as long as they actually exist. Some have closed down since the sat navs were made which could leave you in a spot of bother.

      Below this is a "p" - Parking, press this and it gives you options for where you can park in dedicated areas. Quite useful when you dont know an area and signs are misleading.

      The large main button with four rectangles on it is the main menu. - Press this and you can enter your home menu, new address, old address's and options. You can enter new address' with either road names, post codes or cities. A great way to input data.
      Go through old address's to find previous places you have been to.

      The button below this changes the view of your map. From a 3d style one, to above the roads, written directions and an overall progress map.
      Really helpful ways of viewing your route and progress.

      On the left side of the unit you will find an sd card slot to update a few odds and ends. I never have used it, never required to really.
      Below this you have the charger port. Which is badly positioned i find, the wire is sent backwards. Which means it has to bend really badly back on itself or loosens the connection on the sat nav itself.
      Not very well thought out!

      On the right side of the unit you have the volume +/- buttons. Make your informative friend quieter!!

      When you tap the bottom right corner of the screen you will be shown an informative screen. This gives you an eta, current speed, journey duration and a couple of other bits of info. Not really required as an eta is probably the most appropriate.
      You can of course change the voice you hear directing you. Not many too choose from but it will do.
      Tapping the bottom left screen shows you how good your signal is.

      Overall I have never found any issues with this unit, it gets me from a-b with ease and has never taken me a wrong way or tried to get me to drive into a lake. So top marks for this little unit!
      The only gripe I do have is how long it takes to actually get a signal in the first place which is annoying!
      Other than that a bargain! 10/10
