Summary: I WAS ASKED TO WRITE A REVIEW OF THIS ITEM. MORE THAN HAPPY TO DO SO! I DON'T KNOW HOW I LIVED WITHOUT THIS LITTLE PIECE OF ELECTRONIC WIZARDRY! THEY TELL YOU IT'S PLUG AND GO AND THE BEST WAY TO LEARN ABOUT IT IS USE IT. HOW SO VERY TRUE. THIS COBRA (BEEN A LONG TIME FAN OF COBRA PRODUCTS) NAV1 GPSM 2100 IS ABOUT THE EASIEST ELECTRONIC DEVICE TO LEARN AND USE! IT TOOK ME ABOUT A DAY AND A FEW QUICK TRIPS IN AND OUT OF TOWN TO LEARN IT.
Summary: I inherited one of these as a hand-me-down unit in 2009. It's old, but it still works. I did manage to make it react faster and work better by doing a software update (available at Cobra's weird little website), and so far it has been pretty reliable in getting me from point A to point B.
Summary: About four years ago I bought this model after a lady friend of mine got one and we made a trip with it. I subsequently also bought a Garmin because of favorable reviews but was disappointed because the Garmin was impossible to see in direct sunlight. Before I left for a 200 mile trip to medical facilities in San Antonio I mounted both the Cobra and Garmin on the dash, side by side, to see how they compared.
Summary: I got this unit at a good price which is the biggest reason of buying. Upon recieving the item it has many great features my old gps unit did not have. The size of this unit is perfect, does not take up to much space even on the smallest windshield. The unit shows major lag time when switching between maps and settings. The time it takes to load a map is also very slow. Overall this product is decent and i will use it often.
