    bought one this week and will be using it for work , so will be 'finding six to eight different addresses each day. I have two others in the van as back up, but hoping this one will be better for the motorhome as you can set size/weight and have been sent up some precarious roads a few times by tom tom will report back in a week or so .............if I find my way home:Eeek:

    I usually set the 'easy' route planning option. It seems to avoid all the dubious roads except the necessary ones near destination site/aire.

    I bought one of these and have run it in tandem with my super dooper expensive snooper ,and have to say there is very little to choose between them other than one costs £400 and the other £34 .will carry on using them together for the next year and then will have a good idea of the quality of the stated specification..Roy

    I have been using this as my everyday sat nav guiding me round 6 or 7 calls a day, and it is very good.Compares well to tom tom etc the only slight fault is not with the mapping etc but when it turns off (powers off when ignition turned off) and turns back on between service calls it comes back with a screen that has no positions to press to proceed,and I have discovered that pushing the right hand top corner of the screen returns it to a usable screen (difficult to explain) but this is not a problem. I am happy to use this all the time and it will be my guide in and around Cambridge tomorrow. I will try and update mapping etc from the net if I can work out how to do it. All round good value for money:smiley::smiley:
