Hi there,

I've got the 310D and have had no problems. Find it very good, but it doesn't like the M6 toll road!!! Laughing Out Loud Laughing

I have had the 310d for a few days now, after suffering some "issues" with the Roadangel 6000 (IE system crashing, awful user interface, awful operators manual, difficulty in seeing the screen (awful glare) etc etc)

So far the unit has behaved superbly.

I am particularly impressed with the feature "Garmin lock". A 4 digit security code that needs to be input, by the user, in order for the unit to function. A secret location can be set, with this feature, if you forget your code (clever).

The user interface on the unit is clean, simple and easy to use. Some thought was obviously put into this units operation by Garmin. It is so easy to use, reading the operators manual is NOT really necessary :D.

The neatness, size and design of the mounting kit is superb. The screen dominates the kit, as it should.

The actual screen is exceptionally clear and easy to view, even in bright conditions.

I would fully recommend this unit to any potential buyer

I've been using this for the last 3 months, and initially preferred TTN (on PDA) - but this has grown on me, the initially irritating beeps when you exceed the speed limit approaching cameras is now occasionally irrating but invaluable.
My company bought several of these, mainly as a joist satnav and bluetooth handsfree - in that role it works very well.
Someone borrowed my nuvi for the last few days, and I've had to go back to TTN - driving round London I have to admit I prefer the nuvi; Jo (Lumley was a bit slow on the instructions for some reason)
Mapping errors seem very similar to TTN5 with 6.32 mapping (in Essex/East Anglia/London and A1/M6 north to Cumbria)
I'd buy it (even if I had to use my own money!) - particularly if you need a bluetooth handsfree.

I totally agree with brian100 - I've just bought the 310d and even though it's my first satnav I find it very easy to use. I had a go of a friend's TT GO 700 and found it more difficult to navigate around (pardon the pun).

On a geeky side, although you can't download voice skins like the TT (you can alter the nuvi voices but it requires some giggery pokery of the vpm files), you can download more vehicles from the Garmin site which are fun - there's a bikes, rc buggies and a tank! Laughing

At the mo .. there seems to be a issue surrounding bluetooth compatability with some Sony Ericsson phones but firmware updates on both the 310 and the phone should resolve this. Wink
