The worse "customer support" I have ever had the misfortune to deal with. The keyword destination search function stopped working after I upgrading to latest map. It wasn’t showing correct suburbs for addresses. Every address I searched for was showing suburbs 5- kilometres away. Selecting the incorrect suburb actually takes me to correct address; however, knowing which “incorrect” suburb is a problem. Naveman sent me the map link and the key but when I contacted Naveman to inform them about problems with the latest map I was informed me this wasn’t their problem at all because they buy maps from a third party “http://www.navteq.com/” and I should contact them. I contacted Navteg 2 weeks ago. This was their automated reply “Thank you very much for your message. We will get back to you within 2 working days.” They never got back to me. I contacted Navman few more times after contacting Navteg but their reply was always the same, “This is not our problem, contact Navteg to discuss”. I will NEVER buy another Naveman product again.

Given the Navman MY50 over a year ago. It's been good for a freebie even though it does try to send me to some funny places, eg, turn right when it should be straight, turn right at No Right Turn streets, directing me to look for houses on the wrong side of the street, etc., and it's sluggish in the mornings with the button to start a search needing multiple presses for anything to happen.
There has been a lot of infrastructure upgrades on the Auckland motorway network lately and the Navman has sent me up the wrong ramp which makes me miss the Cook St, or Helensville/Port highways sometimes because as you Aucklanders will know, you can no longer change lanes for the last 200m or so. Ok, no worries I thought, I'll update the Navman to the 2011-12 version for $99. RIPPED OFF. This morning it made me miss the turn-off. I had to travel several more kilometres to back-track at Gillies Ave in heavy traffic. I mean this is one of the busiest stretches of road in NZ and labelled a 'road of national significance' and these guys haven't updated it. Thanks for NOTHING Navman.

This unit doesn't work and contacting Navman was a waste of time energy and money. They expect the buyer to pay the cost of returning the unit when it is their problem . Consumer affairs . Choice here I come.

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.
