What we say...
This promised lots on first inspection – the sizeable footprint meant a nice big screen, and each of the testers were eager to see what it would deliver. Richard loved the neat flyover function, which allowed you to see the hole in its entirety, while Steve liked the well-drawn maps. Riath liked the logical navigation and touchscreen.
However he, along with the other three testers, said that while the sizeable screen was great, the chunky nature of the unit was a bit of a setback. The screen wasn’t great in very bright sunlight – granted, not a huge issue in the UK this year – but we tested it in both rain and sunshine and it certainly performed better on the more dismal day.
