    Interesting Review

    Didn't really get what the review was saying. AFAIK the reviewer put Tomtom on it, but it wasn't as good as the original GPS software, and he installed a desktop program and it now plays games?? I'm confused.

    Anyone got one, and are they any good?? On the lookout for a sat-nav here.

    Why take the risk when you can get a known brand for little more?

    It uses the Navigon IGO8 software, which imo is better than TomTom anyway - seems a good deal.

    Looking at that review it appears you can crack it into WindowsCE and load any satnav software you like on to it (presumably WinCE based).

    Fully agree with both of your points. Excellent "at a glance" instructions on IGO8.

    Looks a very good unit with a reasonable battery life. Big unknown though is screen visibility in sunlight. Advantage for me would be to put sea charts and offroad maps on it.

    I bought this and it arrived today. I've installed the TomTom software and now have a choice of platform for £40. Thanks OP.

    What version TOmtom did you put on? Is it fast enough e. g recalculating routing when you miss a turn

    It's TomTom One V3, not sure of the version number. It seems fast enough, only had a five minute drive around to test it.

    Used it on the short drive to work this morning, no problems viewing the screen in direct sunlight. Drove a different way than suggested so that it would have to recalculate the route and the recalcualtion took no time.

    This does not use Navigon software

    What does it use?

    Do you actually own one? If so then can you tell us what software it does use?
    The review that's linked earlier indicates that it ships with (the very good) IGO8 software, so if not then I'm curious as to exactly what is running on it.

    I'm curious too. However, the screenshot above doesn't resemble my IGO 8.3 screen on a different GPS.

    I agree, but then it doesn't resemble any of the satnav's I've used (which is most, if not all of the major brands & software), which makes me think that perhaps that's a mock-up.

    I bought the 3.5" screen version from the same seller £29 with preinstalled eu mapping, if says it uses:
    Mapfacter Navigator 11 (version 11.0.8) (www.mapfactor.com) and OpenStreetMap (www.openstreetmap.org) BUT the screen shot does NOT look like what i see on my unit. it works fine but this is my first GPS so i have no terms of refernce. battery life 4hrs ish, multiple vehicle types (bicycle,walking,bus,car,truck) uk postcodes and a lot of other stuff i will probably never use. only bad point the volume defaults to max on start up of navigation software EVERY TIME:)

    Hi sorry been away for the weekend - it does indeed use navigator 11 - I received my unit on friday and sent it back today - I bought it to use in france and it can't locate my destination or the nearest town - it wouldn't recognise the postcode either.

    I used it on the way to work once and it just felt amateurish to me.

    Thanks for coming back.
    Never heard of Mapfactor, until now. I see they want 107 euros for the Europe maps. oO A lot of money, especially if the coverage is poor.
    Was tempted but think I'll leave it. Would be nice to tinker with though if it has full windows mobile.

    Finding locations in France is indeed tricky, French "postcodes" are not liked though i think French postcodes are not the same as in uk and define a much larger area, although if you know where you are going you can use the map to scroll across zoom in and then mark your destination, smaller road names (in France ) do not seem to be in the database. Not ideal for use "on the fly", strangley the points of interest "i" are quite comprehensive, once i had found the town (tricky), finding the local swimming pool was simple
    The mapping is a free distribution a bit like Linux, community updated, so with the free stuff out of Ordanance Survey in uk the uk mapping should be good, other countries will control that information differently i guess, how you update the unit i do not know yet, the Hack site link nr the top of the comments may well help. still pleased with my purchase,
