I purchased this GPS for my motorcycle and was especially attracted to the size and portability. I have a touring bike and not a lot of room on the handlebars for accessories. This GPS is very accurate. Due top its size, some of the street names displayed on the top of the screen are written too small, however, the map makes up the difference. Amazingly, for being outside the screen resolution is actually pretty good and I make adjustments to compensate so this is a minor problem. I wish there was a capability to connect a headset to hear the voice direction, but overall, I find that following the map is not difficult while riding. The lack of a lane recommendation does cause some problems in that I have been in the wrong lane sometimes, but this is not the norm. The traffic feature is so-so, in that I have gone into traffic and was warned later and the re-route is not user friendly. You could a lot more out of GPS, but you would have to pay a lot more. I have a much more expensive system made by a competitor in my car, however, the size and weight difference would not make this practical on my motorcycle. I like this product for what it is used and would recommend this to anyone looking for a good, low dollar GPS, that is incredibly accurate.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
