bad outdated GPS

khaledsheibani, Ebay
15 October 2010
  • Summary: bad outdated GPS, no available maps since 2005!!! it doesn't have any of the advanced features you'd expect today from GPS. There's no Bluetooth, MP3 player, or photo viewer. In fact, you will find this navigator's performance so poor and froze frequently that you need to reset the device!! and to do so you need to remove the device from its bulky suction-cup mount and press the reset button on the back with the stylus, something you can't do while driving.

dont waist your money

610cherylg, Ebay
12 May 2009
  • Summary: This product was a complete waist. The first one I got when you would turn it on it would just give you a error message. I contacted the audiovox who said oh I dont know return it to the store. I got a second one that would not get a signal. Finally 3 days later it worked. I found out with this product if it rains the system can not find a signal. So if you are going to spend your money on this pray it does not rain on your trip or you may end up lost.

Junk

Stanley J. Wynman "Wynman", Amazon
9 December 2008
  • Summary: If you paid more then $10 for this, you were ripped off like I was. Software issues galore. Special turn off sequence required, and it tells you to make illegal turns. Customer support does not exist.

not bad for the price!

Kitmacculate, Amazon
11 September 2008
  • Summary: I bought this a while ago for just below $200. At first I had difficulties making the thing work, and then I realize all I had to do is stand outside wait 5 minutes and it worked like a charm. The voice is very clear and its easy to use. It has its little faults on the touchscreen but other than that, this thing is quite good. i would recommend it.

Buyer Beware

Ricky Willis, Amazon
25 June 2008
  • Summary: The NVX226 has a known software problem that requires the buyer to return the unit upon purchase. It doesn't recognize the state of Louisiana. They only have one technician that is able to work on the units. It took 3 weeks for my unit to be returned to me. Upon receiving it, I discovered another software problem and was told to return it a second time. Audiovox doesn't do refunds. I would not recommend this unit to anyone.

Terrible GPS (NVX226)

Anh Nguyen, Amazon
20 April 2008
  • Summary: I bought the GPS NVX226 (Ver. 2) about one year ago; used one time on the trip to Los Angeles which had given me lots of headache, the device has bad antenna it takes 5-10 mins to search signal for satellete and sometime I have to reset/reboot 2-3 times to make it work. The preloaded map is outdated, I can not find any stores around my neighborhood: Safeway, Savemart, Target and Walgreen.

Great features but kept locking up!

James A. Dill "tech seeker", Amazon
27 March 2008
  • Summary: When I did my anaylsis for features vs. cost the audiovox came out very high on my list. It was very simple to use, it came with the maps preloaded on an SD card, it had an excellent mounting bracket, multiple views and many POI. I knew I was in trouble when I first went to use it I had it hit the reset button. Once I did that it worked great for the day, but the next morning it was locked up again and I had to reset it. With each reset I lost my waypoints.
