    Navman are so crap even crooks won't steal them.

    Sunday knight our work place was broken into and a van stolen.
    They spred the contents of my bag (full of useless H&S crap) all over the floor but left the satnav that was in plain view.
    Navman units are really rubbish but it seams that even crooks won't steal them now.
    I'm like a bad penny, old, dirty, and appears when not wanted.

    Main reason why I don't recommend them to anyone

    They're cheap units, they have a few problems, and half the time, Garmins and Tom Toms are cheaper

    depends on the navman.

    i personally like the S90i and S70 3D but its down to taste.

    maybe the thieves were after something in particualar OR they couldnt find the charger so was pointless nicking it as they couldnt power it to go home lol

    did they actually nick anything?

    I use mine all the time, Provides me with a bluetooth hands free kit.
    When I have to travel somewhere to friends house I don't know how to get to. I can just dump in post code and bam I'm there with such little hassle.

    Saves me lots of time.

    I have a satnav & a Navman it is & i've no problems with it really. Works fine. It's a budget one (think the model number is 320 IIRC).

    the only thing i'd like it to have of the top of my head, is a "via" option, as mine only takes you to and from, so you're a bit knackered if you want to go via another place.

    That aside, it's been great. Only once has it failed on me, sort of.

    Van, extinguishers and a load of power tools.
    I hate mine as it never updates, the maps are 2 years out of date and it often sends you the wrong way.

    Did you know the every road beyond exeter goes via Newton abbot?
    No, someone should tell navman.

    Used a tom tom the other day to pick up a sofa in Nottingham, it was great. Very easy to use and very easy to see where i needed to go. Going to get one myself now.
