    Are you pleased with this system? We have a basic TomTom and are thinking of getting as new sat nav system as it's going to cost £80 to upgrade maps! The idea of a 7" screen sounds attractive as does the ability to add a reversing camera as ours has just broken!!

    So far, yes. Although I have only tested it locally. On a deliberate test it has routed us away from narrow country lanes that TomTom didn't.

    As mentioned in another recent post...my only complaint is that you cannot download POIs so I will keep my old TomTom just to use for these.

    At first this looked a good GPS but when I found out that you cannot navigate to GPS coords nor can you add your own POIs I decided it was not for me.

    Hopefully the software will be updated soon to allow these essential functions

    I use 2 sat navs. A snooper to keep me off the little roads and a TomTom to find the sites etc. It seems a bit mad but I find it gives the best of all worlds.:Smile:

    bought one six months ago just tested it extensively in europe,
    and find it did not live up to expectation, the most annoying thing is that it only takes Lon/Lat co-ordinates so unless you know how to convert different systems You cannot use its Gps navigation, Another short coming of my 6 months old unit is that the mapping data is not that comprehensive and cannot find a lot of smaller towns and addresses in France and had directed me through D roads while N road were more stright forward and quicker.
    I also find it difficult to use (not user friendly) compare to the Garmin unit I had. Personal POI had to be saved as favourates but there is not enough space to label the names (another annoying problem) and once saved You cannot look up the co-ordinates so cannot share co-ordinates eg, give it to a friend.
    All things considered I will not recommend buying one for what it cost.
