I purchased one of these satnavs yesterday, I was influenced by the dealers assertion that I could update the maps free of charge whenever i want & despite the fact that upgrades are mentioned on the box I have yet to find out how to actually upgrade the maps and when you live in a backwood like NIreland thats important, the other option that influenced my purchase wqs the bluetooth handsfree the strada wouldn't import my contacts from my nokia e50 though i eventually managed to do this by marking all my contacts and sending them via the established blueetooth connection, finding numbers in my contacts on the strada is to put it bluntly a real hassle you select the first letter tab (abc) or (ghi) for instance and then you have to scroll through all your g's all your h's then all your i's until you eventually find the number (disgraceful) the map performs well enough reconfigures the routes quickly, I'm not interested in the photo viewer, to round of I find the software very slow, and the contacts are a disgrace, I have tried the internet and i've tried panasonic to find out how this magic updating of the maps is supposed to be carried out, I'll be having a talk with the salesman tomorrow, think twice before you buy.
