I bought the Satnav 220 about 3 years ago and have still got it although it doesn't get that much use due to the fact that I use a Mac and the CD software that came with the unit doesn't run on a Mac, so- I am not able to update my Route 66 software. Having browsed the net, it seems a great deal of others cannot update either, judging by all the frustrated posts I can see. The unit is very unreliable if you plug in the wireless lead, - it will seize up within minutes, - it just locks up and that's it!!. So, how about the facility to go hands free? - yes it works, but the sound output is so low, you cannot hear the caller at all and end up leaning forward to hear whatever they are saying, - which is probably more dangerous than using the phone in the first place. Overall the unit is really not worth the £300.00 tag and is it seems virtually impossible to update the route maps. I am going to buy a Garmin next time I think.
