Summary: Trying to help the decision making process of my friend's wife, I revisited my experiences with this product. I think my biggest problem with this product was that I picked it up rather late in it and consumer gps development relative to its cost and features.
Summary: This is my second GPS. What I'm pleased with is that it ALWAYS seems to get a signal. It even gets one near a window in the house. It's fastest route is based on road speed limit compared to distance. You may go a long way quickly but get there faster going a shorter route. I'm also on my second power cable. I don't know why they fail but I end up twisting them "till they work", and that's just NOT cool. I like mine but I'm SURE the new models have more and better tools.
