Where is the factory website
21 April 2013
Summary: I purchased this one several years ago. The pro is its fast navigation system, especially, you bring it with you for a rental car in a different city. It found the place as soon the car started driving out of the garage. The con is I cannot find some new address such as airport, rental car place. I could not find the factory website that helps us for free-upgrade like Germin.
Summary: I didn't buy this gps system from amazon but I want people on Amazon to know what they're getting themselves into. Problem #1: This unit could never pick up a GPS unit. I went all over California and it couldn't pick up a single signal. Therefore, it was completely useless. Problem #2: The battery couldn't hold its charge anymore. I would fully charge it and then, a couple hours later, it would be completely dead. Problem #3: I started calling Amcor customer service.
Summary: I've owned this GPS for about 4 years now, and I have minimal complaints about it. I'll start with them first, and they're more-or-less nitpicky. 1. Battery Life... it's not the best, it works, but I just leave it plugged in anyways. 2. map updates... it's got common POI, but can't update. 3. routing decisions...and it's gotten me where I needed to go better than those TOMTOM's, but onetime it wanted me to drive out 95, just to loop back to Atlantic City....
Summary: The product is in ok. condition. I was not too happy with the purchase: it came without charger or plug. I had to spend 40 dollars extra in buying a cable in order to be able to use it at Radio Shack. Now, when i use it the power goes off constantly, or the GPS signal is lost most of the time. The mentioned store has new GPSs under 70 dollars. Unfortuantelly, i had thrown the receipt away , if not i would be happy to return it.
Summary: I've owned this unit for about 4 months now. Unfortunately, I have to agree with the negative reviews here. This unit does have a very low battery life and is practically unusable without direct power plugin to your cigarette lighter connector. It is also unfortunate that AMCOR provides no map updates. Multiple times, I've been unable to find destination addresses on the unit, even for areas that have been around for more than 3 years. I would not buy this brand again.
Summary: I have owned this product for about 6 months. The maps are garbage, the navigation is garbage, the data and POI's are outdated, and the customer service from Amcor is garbage. Their toll free # is 877.577.8235 and my case # is 14893A044. It has been 15 weeks and they still have not acknowledges my issue, replied to it, or provided the data upgrade so the unit can be utilized properly. Simply put, don't buy an Amcor product.
Summary: It's the first GPS I've owned, but I quite like it. Initial impression was nice. Route mapping seems to work very logically. I input some places I drive everyday, and the route it gave me was the exact route I take. Physically, it's very small, fitting perfectly in the palm of my hand (though my hands are a little big). It's very lightweight. The software side seems pretty straightforward, too.
