Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth it I bought this device in the boxing day and have been using since. I found it slow while the devices searches for the places. It also kind of lags initially when you take the routes other than shown in the gps. I find it really frustrating when the gps cannot accurately show your destination. It shows three or four blocks away from your destination. And even when I have set my home address with the correct house number and street. This has happened with me when I take the route with the house number. So, I would not strongly recommend to go for the product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth for the money I just bought the unit as a replacement to my old VIA 180 which did not have lifetime map update features. Sadly, I made a wrong decision as the screen is so dull and the letters telling the road name is too small. It also works very slow compare to my old VIA unit. I will bring it back to another brand.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from work functional i have only used it twice. The battery doesn't stay for a long time, so it needs to be pluged into a USB powerpoint if you need to drive more than 1h. but it's really nice to be able to see the route while driving. In terms of the map, some of the suspicious fuel stations look like they have been closed for a while but can still be found on the map. But it still works better than phone data since some of the areas have poor reception
