I've been looking at GPS units for last 2 months, and all the information and research I could find on strike was limited to say the least.

What I did find was lots of USED strike units for sale and not many positive owner reviews.

I expect this thread will be moved shortly to the GPS section, just in case you wondered where it went, but in the mean time; yes, I have one though it is the older model. I'm quite happy with it. Maps are updated with a dedicated program that's free to download from the Strike web page and the maps come from Sensis. The update licence is a bit shitty in that it's only one update after you buy the unit rather than the lifetime updates that others offer. You can create routes using Google maps and load them into the unit or create them from the unit directly. Mine uses FM radio for the audio while the newer units use Bluetooth. Both models have speed zone warnings (not radar detection of course, it's map based) with audio and visual alerts and they can play music and video files as well as display e-books if you want, though I don't see the point. I find the touch screen manageable with gloves on, though it's still a little clumsy and it wouldn't hurt the screen to be a little larger, but too much bigger would create mounting space issues.
