Had my 208 Feline for 3 weeks now and the only gripe I have about it is you cant put in a post code to navigate to definately not as good as a TomTom. Was going to get rid of mine but now I think I will keep it.
Ah interesting, glad we didn't order one know - the car we test drive had a sat nav unit and I had a play with it - display was good but I did find it a little fiddly to use and couldn't work out a postcode entry option but had manual to check. Think that is a bit disapointing to be honest but have heard this can be quite common with built in units.
I have typed in my full address and the satnav takes me to the top of the road and not the part where house is. Does it every time. I also tried entering the first part of the post code and the road name and that was even worse. I cannot believe how atrocius the system is. My portable one of seven years ago was better than this. Is there no other software available does anyone know?
and played around with the sat nav. Given the lack of full postcode entry, I thought I'd try my luck with coordinates (latitude and longitude) which I got off Google maps.
Unfortunately the sat nav does not accept decimal coordinates as far as I can see, only degrees minutes and seconds. Back onto the PC to convert them and I find that the sat nav only accepts integers for the seconds, so it is still not as accurate as I'd like. D'oh!
I'm so glad I didn't have a Sat Nav as an optional extra. I use the one on my ageing Nokia on the very few occasions when I need it. Considering how much it would have cost I'm amazed that Peugeot even offer it as an option.
I have been told that there have been difficulties in the testing of the new satnav software using the full UK postcode and that it is unlikely to be available until September. Getting information is like drawing teeth
I agree the Sat Nav is very disappointing and I've resorted to using my google maps app on my iphone! I've only ever been able to find one exact destination that I wanted to go to and that was a city and not an exact road. I do hope there is an update to it soon!
Could not agree more! Its fine as you say to get you to a town or major point of interest but useless if your destination is a small village in rural England! One thing I have found recently that it was very good on redirecting to avoid nine mile queues for the Dartford Crossing. That was excellent but I can't wait to stop using google maps for the last mile or two!!
