Does anyone feel at times that the the SAT NAV at times is a bit slow on the uptake for example telling when to turn or cut off at a junction it just stops speaking the instructions but when you look at the unite it's showing what to do, if you know what I mean, I ended up bloody shouting at it today, wish I could also change the voice she get on your nerves when it does decide to speak

Hi Wilma, have the same problem with my sat nav just as your passing the turning it tells you to turn. Only thing is mine is a tom tom[not fitted]. Went for the best value on motability at the time. The voices I can change and download from tom tom website.

I have never had a factory fitted sat nav that has been that good. The one in my S-max used to get lost and send you round in circles!!

The one in my car tells me to veer right on two stretches of straight road near where I live. I had a Tom Tom which would direct me through a layby and then back onto the main road. It alsotried to send me into a cul-de-sac on the way into the town of Dingwall. The road in question had not been a through road for more than 30 years.

You just need to be careful with them and not totally trust them.

I love these reports on built in sat-navs. Got my Ant se before they up the price and made them standard. Refused to pay the £1,100 extra and did without.

I bought my sat nav off bonnie tyler, It keeps telling me to turn around, and every now and then it falls apart.
