I am very pleased with this purchase. Having used a different make for a number of years which was begining to show its age and becoming less accurate, I decided on purchasing a new one. I chose Garmin as a couple of friends have them and were very satisfied. I have found it to be an excellent purchase and it does "exactly what it says on the tin". It has proved to be very accurate, with helpful voice messages stating which lane to be in whilst driving on a motorway which proved to be very helpful when driving on the M25.

I bought a Garmin Sat Nav on Amazon and on receipt today found out that I had to go on-line as explained by their technician to me, to put the software and maps etc into the machine. He said that since a certain date this was the way it worked and they no longer sold them pre loaded. He tried to do this ( from a call centre in India by the sound of it ) and at the end asked for £ 100.00 for the download. This was on Garmins own web page so no mis-understanding this is a straightforward scam by Garmin. I paid 90 gbp for the sat nav and now they wanted another £ 100 for the maps etc !! They got a short answer and Amazon will have this back with them very shortly.

Easy to use and the screen is very clear. But... I found that sometimes the direction arrow and voice were a little bit slow. For instance - we were coming up to a multi lane junction (my husband was driving) he said "which lane do I take", I said "I don't know", he said politely "well look at the sat nav", I said "she's not saying anything", he intimated we were both useless, and chose his own lane. He made his choice, we moved over to the right and were now committed to the lane and flyover. He'd chosen well because she then piped up with keep in the three right lanes - too late!!!

I bought this to replace my TomTom that broke. It picks up GPS quickly and is easy to search for an address. I like that you can also search for hotels or restaurants as this means this can take you to the right place rather than having to put in the postcode and area and not get to the exact place you need. It connects to your phone which is good in that I can search for business names to help find locations for work travel. This is a useful feature but only allows me to search in my local area and not UK wide, maybe I'm doing something wrong but if I wanted it to take me to a specific business in another part of the UK it seems I would need to get to that region before searching and resetting the sat nav.
The lane assistance feature is good, tells you exactly what lanes to be in rather than just saying ‘keep right' as my TomTom did. The only thing I don't like is if I come off a slip road it doesn't tell me the roundabout exit I need to take until a little late meaning I'm unsure of what lane to be in and if it's busy traffic it's not always easy changing lanes last minute.
The screen is clear but one thing I don't like is you can only have either time of arrival or miles left displayed on the screen, you can't display both.
So far it's been fine with getting me where I need to go with one exception. I travelled from the north east to Cornwall and it took me down through Manchester which was about 40 miles longer and added an hour to my journey. It should've took me down the M1. This seemed to have occurred because I put to avoid toll bridges as when I did it again to accept toll bridges it calculated the correct route. Very strange as no toll bridge on either route.

The unit wasn't working very well to start with, and only had intermittent use. Setting it up one day the screen was completely dark. Amazon won't handle warranty repairs for this item, and it took me a long time to reach someone at Garmin. Garmin told me I need to update the unit, which I did. (It was only 6 months old at this point.) During the update it became apparent that it had switched itself to the very lowest brightness setting (ie: totally dark). I reset this and the screen was usable again, though the unit was still not adequate as a satnav. I didn't use if for a while afterwards, but when I did the screen was black again. The Garmin updater won't recognise it, and it wont respond to any touch screen commands, so nothing can be done. I now intend to video myself destroying it with a hammer and post the video on youtube.

this has a nice big clear screen, updates itself quickly, shows lane position on Mway junctions, gives live traffic info via the app on your smartphone/bluetooth, it would be so much better if it offered more routes, an ability to go via certain roads, and the ability to choose to avoid certain roads. It does have the ability to avoid certain areas or parts of roads, but thats not so handy, also it doesn't always find the best route so you need to check where its sending you before starting off, but still it's a very good, well made satnav.
