"I love my Navman!"

I got one of these for Christmas and it's proved invaluable! I have my driving confidence back as I no longer have to be trying to look at a map while driving, or stopping to check maps as I go.

The Navman isn't infallible and has made some small mistakes but mainly it's meant that journeys have been easier and on some regular trips it's found a faster alternative route. It does sometimes think that dual carriageways are motorways and it seems convinced there are permanent roadworks and a 30mph limit on the M42... But then if I could get the DVD navdesk part working on my computer it'd probably help! However, that's a problem with my pc and nothing to do with Navman, whose customer service were very helpful and they did all they could to help resolve the issue, including replacing the disc very quickly and without any extra charge, despite my not having bought my Navman directly from them.

I'd highly recommend this satnav to anyone who is thinking of buying one!
