Hi from 595 new user in England

Post by stephenwc »

Hello everyone

I've been using the 660 for many years but have had to change it as it can no longer cope with Europe maps all in one go. I can either download France and south or Belgium and north.

Not very helpful when you ride in the Ardennes regions of France, Belgium and Luxembourg.

Having a nightmare with the 595 but came across John Heath's incredibly use guide to the 590 & 595. What a lifesaver.

Many thanks John.

Hope I can be as helpful to people in the future.

You are most welcome. I wrote it because I got the same headaches that you got in switching from a 660 to the 590.

I now regard the 590 as the best device for navigating point to point routes. The 595 comes close. Certainly more trustworthy than the XT !

Any problems, just ask. Where in the UK are you - roughly ?

Today, I discovered something really important. I found another way that doesn't work.

Gloucester.

I'm not sure you realise just how much time you've saved me (and others).

I was about to buy a Nav 6 I was so frustrated.

You saved me at least £400 (music to a Yorkshireman's ears eh?).
