Users Reviews

  • The sat nav comes with built in dash cam which is not very common for other sat navs so if you are considering buying one anyway this is a great addition.
  • Garmin sat navs are very good and popular but the maps are not updated very often. If there is a new road built and ready to use the sat nav still can’t ‘see’ it. Very frustrating.
  • I love the big 7 inch screen. The sat nav has so much functionality I haven’t even tried everything yet. Some issues with re-routing but overall very helpful device.
