I bought one of these at £95 and knowing I was going to Spain and Portugal I thought it was a bargain but the Spanish maps were not that clever. Fine in the towns and main roads but anywhere off of that was areal problem. The damn thing took me miles out into narrow tracks only to bring me back out about half a mile up the road! :x

If you are likely to need detailed routes in Europe pay the bit extra for TomTom because the guys I went with had no problems and the directions were much more detailed...

not voted cos it is a good deal but not too sure on the product for what I wanted in the end...

Should mention that my Parents used this to get them round France this summer. Only got left in a field once - but due to my dad's judgement of the turning nothing else! Maps were up to date etc.

Can't comment on the Spain map problem as stated above though but France is fine

One reviewer on Amazon encountered a similar problem and suggests a work around.

"Sometimes the route chosen seems a little odd: in France we were directed to use a rough mountain path at one stage, of the type that would be a challenge on foot. But that's a weakness of the mapping, and despite having better coverage, the Navteq maps seem slightly inferior to the Teleatlas product (as used by Tom Tom). A quick press of the nifty "Detour" button eliminates rogue routing so it's not a real problem."

Question: do you think this would be usable on foot, say for example to walk around Paris?

It is useable. Used it myself in similar situations. On very small streets it can get confused though to where exactly you are but just depends on the streets and how close they are etc.

Not at all, used it myself in similar situations. On very small streets it can get confused though to where exactly you are but just depends on the streets and how close they are etc.


sorry I'm probably being a bit thick but are you saying it's not at all usable or that it's usable but be mindful of problems on small streets?

I have used GPS devices whilst walking and the main problem is that it is often difficult to be sure which way you are walking as it is so slow compared to a car, you tend to have to walk for a few metres, check that you have moved in the right direction and then monitor it until you need to turn. It doesnt seem to respond quite as well as when you are driving but it will get you where you want to go. With my experience with satnav/gps it is often better to use as a backup to get where you need to go and not rely on it totally. Keep a map with you as you can lose satellite connection in some streets.
Enjoy Paris and make sure you save some time for the art galleries ...... :thumbsup:

And dont forget that it is rechargeable so you may need to recharge after an hour or so as there is no battery option.
