Disappointed in packaging details

Greg Fryer, Amazon
4 February 2014
  • Summary: Although the package says it is Street Atlas 2014 I received a 2013 version. Also nowhere in the description of the BU353 does it state that it is not compatable with Win 8. Found out after my purchase that Prolific, the mfg of the device driver for this BU353 has discontinued support for the driver...

OK but not great

R. Bainbridge, Amazon
9 January 2014
  • Summary: Delorme says they updated a lot of info but there are many complaints that old mapping issues have not been corrected. No real functionality improvements. Probably not worth the money if you have an older product that works.

Windows 8 will crash

Tim Mays, Amazon
16 November 2013
  • Summary: If you have Window 8, don't bother ordering this. The software for the GPS unit makes Windows crash on me, the Blue Screen of Death. I went to find another driver, and GlobalStat says beware of counterfeit software and that if you use their driver you have to turn off Windows Update.
