“ TYPHOON MyGuide 3100 - GPS receiver - automotive „
Driving a car can be most stressful at times, all that remembering where to go malarkey mixed in with beeping horns and the driving bit. It is even worse for country boys like myself that when going up to any sort of big city I invariably melt under the pressure, not to mention somewhere like Dublin where all hell breaks loose and every car is your enemy in a marathon battle to make it to the market.
So it was with relief to find a kind soul had wrapped a little box with my name inscribed upon it, inside I found this product from which I will be reviewing. The MyGuide SatNav system. Oh boy.
First the good news, the system has an easy to use layout and it doesn't take long at all to get used to setting and storing directions. It was also has a pretty fun multimedia feature, utilising a detachable memory card, that lets you build a music playlist for the car.
However it did have a few drawbacks, for instance audio setting appears to disregard the variable control and will switch from silence to ear deafening loudness. On top of that the battery life is very poor, virtually draining within a day and has to be left on the charger when needed (not exactly convenient).
On the whole it has been an okay SatNav but the problems worsened when the MyGuide company appear to be non-existent so I have had no luck getting map updates for the computer making it pretty redundant.
If you want a designated satellite navigation system, the MyGuide 3100 series is perfect.
The MyGuide 3100 is the first choice for navigation-only devices. No scrolls, no costs. This device combines a clear design with a good price, without leaving out things you need.
