Sean, South Africa. 28 September 2016
I've previously owned Garmin's and TomTom's so have no brand preference. The unit is well built. Maps are good and updating was easy through the PC. I thought the hi-res larger screen would be a important feature but its more of a distraction than anything. A smaller unit would work just fine.
The key reason I bought this unit was for the traffic alerts and routing. I'm very disappointed with this aspect. An example of this is driving parallel to a main road with lots of morning traffic. The device wants me to get onto the 'faster' main road instead of continuing on the parallel road (even TomTom does this). On this particular day there happened to be two traffic lights out on the main road. The device wanted me to navigate through both sets of broken traffic lights (asking me to join the main road at the first set of broken lights).
When it comes to traffic routing you can't beat Waze / Google Maps on your phone.
