    please don't buy a mains charger, i have had two rac 215 sat navs and the mains charger damages the batteries,and rac won't warrant the product unless you buy the charger from them,the sat nav does not stay on long on a full charge anyway

    Default Very Very Disappointed

    When I first bought the RAC Sat Nav I was elated, only had to upgrade once every two years, telephone support, and launched by the RAC, therefore something endorsed by a motoring organisation.

    I am sorry to say I am very disappointed with the whole fiasco concerning my Sat Nav.

    I purchased 4 Rac Sat Navs this year, and each and every one of them had a fault and had to be returned. I then bought another the RAC 220 top of the range (and even that had to be sent back and be replaced because of a fault), and when I rang for to find out about new updates to the software, I was told July, then August, then September, then end of November and now this morning before Christmas.

    I have now just gone out and ordered myself a new Tom Tom Sat Nav at least I know that it will get updated every year even if I do have to pay for them yearly.

    I honestly thought that a Sat Nav that came with the endorsement of the RAC would have been a good investment wow how wrong I was.

    Oh why did I get rid of my Garmin.

    Default Safety Camera updates

    Hi,

    I have been reading the forum for some time.
    I own a RAC210 Satnav and have experienced the problem that many people have highlighted on here - namely that the Safety Camera update does not work properly.

    Maybe I have missed something, but when I download the update file from Route 66 and transfer it to the card (using a PC card reader) it renders the Safey Camera functions useless. It appears to lose key information from certain files.

    Are there and clear and easy to follow FULL instructions on how to sucessfully acheive these updates on this unit, because i think i am missing something?

    Dean

    Default RAC Support

    I recently bought an RAC 300 Sat Nav system. After reading through the "Very Brief Instructions" I must admit I had to ring the help line. The young lady I spoke to was very helpful indeed, and in less than 10 minutes, I had the system up and running.

    You can download the whole instruction book from the address that is given in that booklet. When I got mine there was a Disc in with it, which gave all the pages of instructions that I needed

    I had updated the software once - lost all the settings I had customised and really struggled to restore them. Haven't bothered with any more updates ever since.

    Ah!, well I think you did the right thing, I am a bit scared of updating mine as well after reading all the problems folk are having in here
