Summary: I actually have been using my mother-in-law's GPS (this device) for a few months now. What a royal PITA (Pain in the....) This is not a GPS device. This is a MULTIMEDIA touch screen device with GPS as an option. The good: - The maps are decent. - You can load music, videos, and photos onto an SD card and view and listen to them through the GPS. - You can sync your mobile devices with it through bluetooth.
Summary: This ASUS R700T has great 4.3" wide screen LCD and it is very bright and easy to see. I can store lots of music, photo in the 1G internal memory. The main point i purchaes this GPS becaseu ASUS R700T Provide life time free TMC. Yes, i don't need to pay any penny. TMC help to get real time traffic information. I did lots of homework before i get this GPS and i found TMC service need to pay 7USD per month or $70USD per year. How much you need to pay life time service?...
Summary: GPS works ok, sometimes a few seconds delay and can miss a turn by 40 feet or more. Can't listen to music or use other features during GPS mode. Radio broadcast feature goes into sleep mode after a few minutes. Free traffic updates don't really work. Update 12/2011 - purchased map upgrades from the company but ended up a nightmare. Several support calls and emails later, I got the upgrades installed. Now it's worse than before.
Excerpt: I used this GPS on a trip from Romania to Germany and on the way back so I could built up an opinion about it: Advantages (+): - big screen, proper for watching clips or even movies - maps are stocked in it's internal memory but he also had a 2Gb card that you can use for music, videos or other stuff... - I tried the bluetooth with Nokia 6230i and N73, absolutely no problem.
Pros: performance, display
Cons: price, FM transmitter isn't working as expected
Excerpt: Ich muss Euch unbedingt meine Erfahrung mit meiner neuesten Errungenschaft teilen. Ich wollte schon immer ein Navi haben, das nicht nicht in Kombination mit einem PDA ist, ergo ein PND (Personal Navigation Device) Ich war nach dem Auspacken sehr von dem Design, dem Gewicht und der guten Verarbeitung begeistert. Sieht wirklich sehr stylish aus, keine störende externe bzw. auszuklappende Antenne stört das Gesamtbild, da die Antenne integriert ist.
Pros: Schickes Design, Bluetooth, FM Transmitter, Kartenmaterial
