I was looking for a basic sat nav and based on recommendations from friends I went for this. It comes ready to use straight out of the box and couldn't be easier to use. Simply enter a postcode or town/city name and within seconds it calculates your route and you're ready to go. The points of interest feature is also useful, locating petrol stations, restaurants, hotels, airports etc close to you. It attaches to the windscreen in a really clever way, sticking solid, and comes off again with ease. There are a couple of minor negatives - for some reason the sat nav can not pick up a satalite signal at my house, no matter how long I wait, but can when I drive 50 meters up the road. Although the box says 2009 the map on the sat nav it self appears to be older. There have been a number of new roads built around where I live in the last two years and these are not on the sat navs map which confuses the unit for a short time. I understand this is the entry level model but I still expect it to feature the most up to date map available which is why I can't give it 5 stars.
