"I got an Alpine PND-K3 for free and I feel ripped off.."

Dempro, CNET
28 July 2012
  • Pros: It's great if you live somewhere devoid of any new construction in the last 5 years...
  • Cons: My office has been here for 3 years, and it's not in the GPS, either are half the clients I go visit.

"Horrible customer service and no map updates in 3 years"

  • Pros: Nice screen, bluetooth is nice too
  • Cons: I called over a year ago looking for updates to the maps for this unit. I was told it "was in the works" a year later, Alpine still has no updates and still claim they are working on it.

Not turning on!

MC, Amazon

  • Summary: I've used this about 3 times and now it doesn't even turn on. I've tried resetting it, charging in on the AC outlet, in my car and in my laptop but no success. I regret buying this.

The Battery Exploded!!!!!

Carol, Amazon
11 July 2010
  • Summary: I GPS unit from my husband last Christmas, 2009. I used it only a few times. It would really get hung up on country roads. After 6 1/2 months and using it only a few times, the GPS battery exploded in my NEW car!!!! The entire extend of damage to the interior of my car is not yet determined... The unit is still covered by a 1yr warranty. We'll see how Alpine addresses the issue...

Maps and pathing are horrible. Save your $

Julie Cook "CoronaL", Amazon

  • Summary: I liked the look and features of this unit. Real life use though for about 9 mos has really jaded me on this nav unit. It continually takes me way out of the "way" going to destinations. Restraunts in Huntsville Alabama, well lets just say over 3/4 of them were no longer operating, OR not where the nav unit said they were. Took me to wrong airport once. Totally unacceptable performance. My friends $99 Nuvi is tons better. We only use that now on trips.
