    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Replacement I purchased this sat nav to replace an old Garmin unit. I chose it because of the larger screen hands free capability lifetime maps camera updates and link to phone. It paired up to the phone (Samsung galaxy s7) well and the display is excellent. Only gripe is the need to download the app to a laptop and NOT to my trusty iPad mini! My laptop is old and little used and will not support the app necessary for registration and support. The unit functions well on its own but I will need to update it to use its full capabilities. However this is my fault not Garmins! Storage of the suction unit is always an issue surely a flat pack would be better. Used on trip to Wales and impressed with functions. Some awkward junctions have real pictures displayed to aid your route selection which is very helpful. Traffic updates were useful and hazard alerts helpful. Easy to set up and use. Some local routes are not the ones I would take and as usual with sat nav I rarely get the same route on the return journey! Must be selection of shortest vs fastest route or local traffic conditions. Great price for a great unit from Halfords and look forward to many years of service. Much improved over ?10 year old one for only £20 more!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sat nav with bluetooth for telephone Sat nav is very easy to use and set up but seems to take awhile to start up but works as expected and able to use telephone via Bluetooth on this unit (Cheaper then having Bluetooth added to your car)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sat nav start up Overall very pleased. Only down side is when drving in very built up areas, it sometimes becomes confused especially when first turning the system on.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Traffic feature very misleading This is a great sat nav but although it is promoted as having traffic that is only if you have an iphone or android phne. An app is required which is not compatible with Windows...that software platform created by a little known company called Microsoft. Apparently theres little call for Windows according to Garmin. Fully recommend the unit but check what phone you have as there is zero information from Halfords or Garmin about which phones are compatible. You only find out ehen you buy the unit.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Simply awful I never write reviews but feel I should on this occasion to warn others. Having always had TomTom's, I thought I'd try a Garmin as had heard good things. Brought this to use round france for 3 weeks but gave it a test run to cornwall before I did... thank god I did!! It proved to be utterly unreliable. The live traffic is useless, so inaccurate. We got stuck in 3 bad jams in total there and back. On 2 of the occasions, whilst we were sat queueing, the sat nav failed to even pick up the jams- saying 'no traffic ahead', let alone warn me. The when it did pick up a jam, it said the queuing traffic was 2 minutes. Incorrect garmin, more like 50 minutes! This was disappointing enough, as for the clearness of on screen directions, this was pretty good. However, the sound is very, very poor (I'm 30 and have no problems with hearing). Another problem was the instructions were simply wrong. For example, It told me to remain straight ahead on an A road and showed the direction, however, the road I wanted was in the other direction and I was sent into a random, very tight road near some houses. This happened on a few occasions. If your like me, and wondering to go for Garmin or TomTom, go for TomTom. Halfords were great and I swapped it and paid a bit extra for a TomTom (£159.99 I think it was, can't remember the model) and it was worth every penny, the live traffic is built in with a Sim, rather than the garmin that requires data (no use abroad) and has been so accurate. The instructions and interface are so much clearer and well thought out. Just got back from France and it was brilliant. The build quality is also far superior, the garmin mount and device build quality was surprisingly poor (I have a garmin watch that is excellent). I strongly urge you not to buy this and go for a tom tom!
