I had seen these before, and to be honest, I am not sure the picture mapping, even if it was 100% coverage offers much benefit to me based on what I want out of a Sat-nav.

As an example, the familiar London Underground topographical maps allow quick & easy visual "scanning" by NOT showing too much complicated detail, and you can see where you want to be, and gives a rough gauge of how many stops you will need to pass within a simple glance, and I think the same sort of principal applies here. Where a device you use while driving needs to give you the necessary info, WITHOUT too much detail that you end up spending time looking at an "digesting" After all, the voice prompts are what has made sat-navs the tool they have become, the idea is that you only glance at the screen when you need a little more info such as "which junction: Next, second or third?" You get that by a simple line representation, and I am not sure attractive pictures of the houses of parliament would offer much benefit to me trying to navigate the area!

The fact that other manufacturers have not gone for this approach simply because these 3d pics now exist, makes me think I might be not alone in my opinion, and it is just a gimmick that makes it a bit more expensive than the equivalent models.

The feature I like most about it is however the Bluetooth connectivity, and this has the potential of being decent value for this feature alone - although the overall software is something I would be loathe to take a chance on, and will stick to TomTom for sheer compatibility with add-ons and POIs too - up to date speed cameras, and gerneral information mean more than pictures for me, and until I am sure something better really has come along

So it is a neutral from me!

Just to clarify what I meant in my post above, with reference to using other software. I love IGO8 gps software and would love to switch between software when possible. The bluetooth features on this unit are what I'm after.

Specs look remarkably like the Navigo http://www.ebuyer.com/product/146674. Does anyone know which language the Windows CE is on this, as I think the Navigo is Chinese which makes it difficult / impossible to install other programs? :?

Spec might be similar, but it doesn't look much like it!

The previous models were EASILY adapted to run other software, not aware of any problems there at all, not read any comments about Chinese language; I am very surprised though that no-one has made detailed comments on the adaptability of the new model - perhaps they are all doing what I am doing- waiting to see if it is easily possible!

The only encouraging post says, "TomTom7 works fine on an SD card. I have used a 4GB SDHC, no problems. I have not yet booted into windows CE."

As far as the unit in the original post, it has attracted little comment, and I suspect it is as uninspiring to others as it is to me! :-(

I've just bought one of these. It was the display model in Maplin so they knocked off a tenner. Interface seems OK, has most of the expected features and the speech is extremely load and exceptionally clear. Build quality is good; the casing is some sort of rubber which is reassuring. I'll update this thread with more thoughts after i've used it for a few days.
