Summary: Although this is a very old unit in respect(mfg date 2006), it still is the most accurate one I've seen or used EVER!. Been through about 1-2 of them within this 8 yr period, dropping, etc.But always revert back to it when it sells this inexpensively. Have seen other people use more expensive Garmins, Magellans, etc, and have seen them wind up in the middle of nowhere, lost and confused. Won't happen with this unit if you read the directions on how to operate it.
Summary: It is a Dinosaur, it serves better as a weapon being so large. I don't make many mistakes but i did when i wasted my money on this, had i known it was so large and only showed a map i would have passed.
Summary: i found one of these in a truck stop and bought one i was real pleased with it and how it worked so well in a simi truck cross country but it only showed me the way a car can go and not a big rig so i sold it and now im off work over a work related injury that put me out of work i found another for my pickup and again well pleased with it anyone would be happy with this unite but everyone has there different oppions of it so far my best friend for traveling
Summary: nice unit, VERY heavy though, does not hold well with windshield mount, would need more then one suction cup, unit worked for all of one day, then power receptical developed short and fried unit
Summary: Other than the unit not being able to reconize any address entered it could be a pretty good unit. Maybe I got a bad one?? Everthing else works fine, and is EZ to go through the menues and set trips etc. But When I entered my own address it could not find it. It gave me one that was close...but not mine. Seemed to work fine for the offroad trail mapping.
Summary: throw away your Garman & Tom Tom 3.5 and 4.3 thay are Tinker toys! Compered to this Cobra 3000 5.2 I Am wecker service owner And have this cobra 3000 in my trucks. My guys find the Cobar 3000 is simplest to use. WE have had others,the guy have had spelling problems with them. Much harder to use. Much harder to see. Touch screneson 3.5 with big fingers dose not work!
Summary: I purchased a Cobra GPS unit. There were some issues just trying to receive it. In Mid-January for the first time I pulled it out of the box to use it. (refurbished Unit) The back-Light was defective. My inducement to purchase this unit was a friend owned a new one,which We used many times (With great Success)...Refurbished is the New Buzz word in My Vocabulary...I'm glad I tested the unit locally...If on a trip,I literally would have been in the dark.
