Own three 700HDX Units.
Map updates where free and took minutes to update,
Acurrate Off Road and back track to the spot.
First unit got stood on and apart from the cracked screen not all ways responding to touch continues to work. Hema's sold off and no regrets.

Absolute rubbish would hate to rely on it if lost
Seriously don’t bother with this rubbish loads once in every 10 resets continuously popping up with errors. Just updated it this morning with a little hope and I wasn’t disappointed still a piece of crap..... NEVER AGAIN
Purchased in March 2018 at 4WD Supacentre Physical store.
We have used this device for 4 years and have had it back to VMS twice for warranty issues which were done without question. But I have given up on it after last trip with constant freezing and and error messages when moving between menu's and having reboot over and over. Don't know what causes it, lack of RAM, OS or software but I'm over it.
The off-road map choices are good but the device operates better in highway mode
Keen to have a demo of Garmin RV775 MT-S as we have a small Garmin in 2nd car which is seamless to use and easy to upgrade

Total rubbish, maps are years old ,
Maps are out date 3yrs plus . Gps drops out ,ive had a tom tom running along side it still worked fine. Wasted of money
4wd supercentre or super ripoff doesn't want to know about it. Wouldn't recommend this item . Or recommend 4wd supercentre.

Sadly I have to agree and support the many negative posts on this GPS. I have persevered with the device over a couple of years and would NOT recommend purchasing one. It freezes and fails to operate at critical times when driving especially on road trips when you appreciate a stable platform. Unit promises plenty, looks smart but fails the reliability test too often.
A 5 year old can direct me better
Bought one 2 weeks ago won’t work out bush on off road . Went up to Barrington tops and off road couldn’t even find the campsites . While loading maps it decides to go in to sleep mode and won’t turn back on but the green light stays on. When I bought it I was told it was all up to date , set it up to navigate me home and the new expressway of 5 years don’t even exist .

I have had this unit for over 3 years. Never missed a beat. Constant remote areas and so accurate I use it to set out road chainages which are within 1 meter of surveyors set outs.
I too brought this unit from Supacentre.
You all must have got a bad batch.
Off road maps are always accurate.
Its slow, you cant scroll, Off Road maps are useless! I wouldn't trust this unit to find your way in a remote area. Purchased from 4x4 Supacentre who wont support the product or provide a refund in their 30 Day Guarantee.

Don’t do it
Great if you want a paper weight, take maps you will need them don’t waste your money if the system can find your map it will normally freeze up and that’s if you can get past the start up screen
Don't wast your money
I had high hopes for this device. Unfortunately it didn't even come close to my expectations.
I updated my device when I got it, then using the on road navigation around North Queensland, there are too many roads that do not exist on the GPS unit. I also used it coming into Brisbane, and had the same issues.
As the main reason I purchased this was to use off road, that wasn't a deal breaker just yet.
I only had to use it once off road to realize this product is absolutely rubbish. A lot of the tracks I was on did not exist on the unit, and wh...

No good off road
Went to vic high country. Got lost/missed turn offs. Had to manually select maps, when one section finished, or it flicked to Gregory version which didn't show most tracks. Destination is in a straight line, useless. Waypoint setting ok, but it had difficulties keeping the breadcrumbs track logging. Wouldn't turn on every time. Save your money and get a hema to go with their great paper maps.

Did not work offroad which is the primary reason anyone would buy one
Although the GPS navigation worked perfectly fine on-road while it was within Telstra network data zones, it failed to locate my position and load the map when I went outside network data zones. The whole point of buying these units is so that you could locate your position in remote areas offroad and it didn't even do that! Complete waste of money and my time, I'm glad 4wd Supacentre gave me credit back on this product because contacting VMS directly proved to be another waste of my time. Save yourself some headache and steer well clear of this product

Bought approx 2 years ago send back as it did not work received back with new card still does not work
not reliable enough to go bush 2 years never use once how about a refund
Purchased for $270.00.
Piece of junk
First one died. Second one sent to me didn't work either. The unit sent back was second hand. These units seem to have a bug in them. Very disappointed with it.

What a total waste of money. One star isn't low enough.
Total waste of money kids bought it for my 70th birthday has never worked in 4x4 track mode. Keeps telling me to insert SD card is only 15 months old. How can you sell such a load of rubbish.

Questions & Answers
Plugged it in and a picture came up then the screen went black and not worked since, what could be the problem
Battery. Plug it in and feel the heat in the back of it. I went through two and will not go a third one, get it returned for refund or credit because it is an absolute piece of crap
Is this unit any good for outback touring on remote 4wd tracks. I read somewhere that it isn't so good for remote 4wd, but just fine for more local 4wd. Thanks
I purchased the unit from 4wd supercentre based on the feedback they had on their website.
My experience was the opposite and I could not recommend the VMS.
Avoid it and look for an alternate device. It may cost more initially however it would have to be another shocker to not provide better value for the money.
Download Polaris maps to a tablet, it is free and very good. This is what I am using.
Thanks Paul, I will have a look.
VMS started off fine a week ago, but last 2 has started shutting itself off. Any ideas?
My review was to worn people not to buy this product.......
