I have had this unit (branded as a "Go Cruise") for 12 months and use it almost every day. The only two problems I have encountered are firstly that it has "locked up" three times needing a reboot and secondly that the posted speed limits are often wrong. I like the route planning/save feature and have stored dozens of future routes and also trip logs. The fuel consumption feature is great too. I use it mainly on my motorcycle and find that it has not been bothered by the vibration at all in over 6000km. I would definitely buy it again, hopefully with included map updates. I also have a Tom Tom but never use it now.

I want to update the maps as the other day the iGO50 told me to turn the wrong way down a one way in Sydney. The map updater program is not supported on the MacBook. I then tried it on XP, it doesn't recognize the device. I later tried it on Windows 7 with the same result. The updating application simply tells me there's no device attached. I cannot find any drivers on the Internet and the uniden.com.au website is particularly useless. There are only two drivers listed, for the 301 and 501 devices. Nothing else!! The only reason I am giving it one star is that is does switch on

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.
