NAVMAN F40 - Advice ... Anyone got one ? About to buy so please help......

    Hi just seen a Navman F40 sat nav for £47.99.
    I just want a basic sat nav for a bargain price so this seems perfect for me :
    It has bluetooth, Hands free, touch screen, uk & europe maps, uk postcode search, seems like a brilliant model - just what i want.

    Just wondered if anyone has one and can let me know how it is ? I cant find any reviews online for this model. Thanks

    Can i ask why it was rubbish ? Im not expecting a state of the art sat nav, just a basic one. Wont use it that much.

    also bought two Navigos from W.H. Smith at £49.99
