Much faster than the 450. Latest software almost identical to the car devices (620 etc) plus some bike flavoured bit Twisty roads etc.
Routing and times are basically the same as the car for the standard quickest Eco etc, so with filtering I always arrive earlier than the original ETA

Seem to be less prone to random orientation changes. BT issues still appear to be there ( Im using a Sena SC10U BT headset) but using it with the mydrive App on the phone seems to work well but as ever there are still a few bugs in the system.

Its not very easy to use if you are moving ( But thats probably a safety feature at least until you have miss a way point and you are trying to shut the bloody thing up)

Externally it looks the same as the 400 series apart from some very minor cosmetic changes.

Mine has not got wet so dont know if this has cured the rain sensitivity and condensation problem The 450 I have never had an issue.

Wish they would re introduce personalised Icons & sounds. being able to record your present GPS position as a POI, Customisation of the quick menu.

It seems the 500 does not have UK traffic and cameras. Have you actually got one as they are not available in the UK yet

Hi

Yes but mine is still a test device. Speed cameras are on the device but it will not support the PGPSW ones in a meaningful way.
