    Altina A800 runs off Miomap software, but this device is not supported by the Miomap website, so updates cannot be downloaded from them. Updates through various Poi libraries are possible, but for the computer literate only – and are usually well out of date.
    The navigator works OK, and it has a large screen which I find can be distracting. Voice guidance is overdone, because I don't want to be reminded four times to take the next turn – it is best turned off. The speedcam notification is non-english (Korean?), even though english language was selected. Again, voice warning is best turned off.
    The handbook is difficult to understand – it is all there, but not in a logical order, and it is on the DVD supplied, not hardcopy. No quick start guide.
    The case is part silver which looks nice, but reflects in the windscreen.
