Im thinking of switching from TomTom and getting one of these fine looking machines.

Can someone please answer a couple of questions first...

How is the cradle system. I'll be entering and leaving my car at least seven times a day so I need a system that is not fiddly and wont break.

The 'clear route' thing looks good but i do like to see surrounding roads. This is useful if I suddenly want to deviate from the route and turn down a road that is heading in the same direction. Can you always see the surrounding roads when taking a route?

Is there a direction arrow that points to the location you are traveling to? I find this useful, again, if I want to deviate. At least then you know you are traveling in the correct direction.

Many thanks,
Tc

The Spirit systems from Navman are a great system, and intuitive interface

CRADLE
Robut and unlikely to break it is - and dead simple to fit to a window, and the best I've tried for stability on the window and no vibration. However, it can be a little tiresome with the power adaptor attached since it isn't an active mount, and the unit tends to push away from the RHS receiver if the power cable is in position when you mount your unit (its fine if you attach the power cable later). I have a similar need to leave the car multiple times daily, so this isn't great, but okay

MAPPING
The clearview mapping DOES show all the roads around as you come close to them - what it does however is to minimise their impact on your concentration by making them more subtle. You would have no issues with turning into an road not marked - it would be

DIRECTIONAL ARROW
No!

All in all a great unit and highly recommended. The S200 and S300T are now available from Navman.com too - if you want UK only the best place is Halfords as they do S100T exclusively for 179 plus free traffic receiver, plus 20 Halfords Vouchers at the moment = 159 = Bargin!
