Navigator VI. Definitely, positively, utterly crap
So I bought a new RT a couple of months ago and splashed out on a Nav V1, which here in the UK costs £650. Probably the most expensive standalone car or bike satnav available.
I've done 3000 miles and can honestly say that the Nav V1 (or Nav 6 if you prefer), has been a total pain in the arse.
On the fastest route setting between two towns, it's taken me onto unmade gravel roads in the Pyrenees,(two up , fully laden, on an RT) that were massively slower than the alternative tarmac route), and directly into a quarry.
I've spent days, with and without the help of Garmin support attempting to get it to function like a satnav should, to no avail.
Last weekend I used my Nav 6 for a 150 mile journey. No exaggeration, it added at least two hours to my trip. Most comical error was using 'fastest' option, riding along the A26, it directed me into a left turn off the A road, into a layby for all of 30 metres and then told me to turn left back on to the A road in the same direction.
This evening, I planned (or rather attempted to plan) a simple route from Gloucester to Taunton on the Nav 6 using the trip planner app. I added a starting point, 11 waypoints and a finishing point. I click 'next' and get "Cannot calculate the route". No explanation, no suggestion, just in effect, 'Computer says no'.
A satnav, that cannot calculate a route, using its own internal app. Just what I wanted when I splashed out £650.
That's it. I'm done with it. It's been nothing but pain every time I've wanted to use it, both with basecamp and without. Total, utter, shite. It's going back for a full refund. Grrrr.
