This is a pretty useless unit.

I have it set not to travel on gravel roads, so it got me to travel on a really dangerous dirt road, apparently because that was the shortest distance between two places. It completely ignores any preferences.

In addition, finding a street and not knowing the exact suburb means that the unit won't find it at all. That is, Wickham Street is in the suburb of Spring Hill, but can also be in Brisbane. The unit won't find Wickham Street if you enter Spring Hill. Why isn't there some kind of search function that includes nearby suburbs? That's available in the Sensis maps that Garmin uses.

Some routes are completely wrong. Going from Toowong Bus station to Broseley Street Toowong directs one along Elisabeth Street, which is a dead end. The unit simply reroutes by directing one to drive around and try again. If you were really desperate to find a route, it would be impossible.

Using a via command is impossible. Seems difficult to just make a change to the route on the fly.

A related item: It won't allow one to plan alternative routes. For example, travelling from Hendra to East Brisbane is difficult because there is no way you can tell the unit that you want to travel via the inter-city bypass.

And it will only find points of interest that are nearby. It's impossible to find a point that is some distance away without scrolling through numerous examples.

It also takes one down road and gives directions that are simply wrong. Down the wrong slip road, for example, or around roundabouts when there is none (and I have uploaded the latest maps).

I would never rely on this thing. The only useful elements are the arrival time, travel time, speed etc. But as a replacement for a paper map? Never.

I am extremely angry and disappointed with my garmin, it was a gift for xmas. I have only used it four times since xmas and today it wouldnt respond to voice command or show location or any maps ( satellite connection non existant) and now it wont turn on or go at all! Buyer beware! Do not buy this product!

i am finding it difficult to go through the process of down loading maps of other countries. eg Holland/UK. I am one of the older members of society and not a tec head.Surely Garmin could make this process a lot easier.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
