the product is fine once you get used to it when used in truck mode it can be a problem in some cases for instance i was sent with a 62ft long lorry and drag combination to place a generator in carpathian close in southampton the only way in that is not a 7.5 ton limit is up a bridlepath and so it tried to send me that way you have to get used to it and know when to ignore it. in all other functions i find it excellent and it has saved me time and money it has a fair battery life of about 4 hours is easy to update and clear to see. the bluetooth function is ok in quiet vehicles but not good in anything a little noisy.Multi routing is a big bonus and works very well it is very good at explaining to the boss why you could not do that many miles in one day legally. I have had tomtom and garmin also the indago but i find once you get used to the syrius truckmate it will not let you down or get you stuck up a one way street with a low bridge and no way out.to finish i would say if you want a professional piece of kit that does the job get a truckmate in my opinion the rest are for wheelbarrow drivers and weekend warriors
