I recently tried to use this Sat Nav system whilst on holiday in the Algarve, Portugal. NOT ONCE did it find us where we wanted to go. Problems we had:

1. Most roads, even the main road between PT and spain where marked as unknown.
2. often drove us to the middle of a construction site and said there was a beach there.
3. continuously fell off the windscreen
4. Sometimes lost satellite signal at the most critical time for up to 10 minutes.

However, now realizing its low price it is probably understandable. Maybe in the UK, this system works better but it is certainly a TERRIBLE system to use in Iberia.

There were a few good things to point out:

1. Easy to set up
2. Easy to use.

However, this only brings it up to a poor rating simply because it couldn't perform its basic function of finding us directions.

In conclusion, DON'T BUY this Sat Nav for Iberia.
