"Navman F20 Europe"

This Navman is brilliant!!! I have had mine for a while and am very happy with it!

The advantages of this are:
  • It is reliable and always gets you to you destination
  • The charge holds for quite a while (i've gone from harrow to brighton and back without charging)
  • It is quite slimline
  • Easy to use
  • Cheap compared to other sat navs
  • Has a number of different views for your journey and you can bring up a list of directions rather than a map if you prefer
  • Tells you your estimated time of arrival
  • Has quite a large screen
  • You can find an address with a postcode, road name or simply a town
  • You can search for local ammenities from a petrol station to an amusement park and find your nearest ones
  • Warns you about speed cameras
  • Tells you what speed you are going
  • If you go the wrong way or choose to ignore a direction it will recalculate your route from where you are without having to press anything
  • Picks up a signal super fast
  • Comes with a bracket which it fits comfortably in
  • Can choose a male of female voice
  • You can store your home address, so where ever you are at a touch of one button it will take you home
  • You can store 'favourites' so if you go to places reguarly all you need to do is press one button rather than key in the address
  • It is really hard wearing, I have dropped mine many times and it still works perfectly
  • It comes with a charger that plugs in to your lighter
  • You can choose to avoid motorways
  • Tells you the direction you're traveling in
  • Has colour screen
  • You can choose to set it by the shortest distance in mileage or by time

The negatives are:
  • it does not come with an ac charger, this is not bad though as you can charge whilst you are using it
  • It may seem as though it takes you a long way round sometimes, but this can be because it is a quicker route in time and not mileage

As you can see I haven't listed many negatives!!! This is because I am really impressed with the sat nav. It is such a great price for a gadget which does so much! My mum recently bought a sony sat nav, which looks very flashy and is supposed to be great. She payed a lot of money fot it as she was willing to pay for quality. The problem was after she came on a journey with me, she realised that mine was so much better and had many functions hers did not (male/ female voice, storing addresses etc). It also had faults too, she's returned it and bought the same one as me. She's saved a lot of money and got herself a much better product.

If you're gonna buy a sat nav you can't go wrong with this!!!
