Summary: Great so far, however, it doesn't have a option to choose "shortest distance"...in my job as a flatbed towtruck operator, I need to find the shortest route. I love the size of the screen, everything is easily seen on the screen and easy to read.

Summary: I have been driving for 17 years most of that time with no GPS. I once I started using a GPS I used my phone and google maps. My company bought this for the truck I drive so I am using it now. But that being said. The truck info in this GPS weight limits road limits and so on is not very good.
Summary: This GPS is so much more than I expected. The live traffic feature was spot on. I love that I can view the weather as well. The bluetooth feature is what I wanted the most, and it works great. The folks I have talked to on it said the call sounded very clear to them on the other end.
Summary: This thing is fantastic. It is easy to use, accurate, big enough to see, loud enough in a big noisy truck and the included suction cup mount is very reliable. It works with my Droid flawlessly, so hands free is just exactly that, hands-free.
Summary: Would give it five stars but there are a few small glitches you have to be conscious of, it has been worth every penny. When you plan a route and turn it off for the night it will remember the route when you turn it back on.
Summary: Trucking restrictions and limits are not always accurate. Unit could use more programing functions to be more user friendly, such as being able to interrupt a trip nav to check intermittent distances or possible alternate stops. Trip planning does not seem to be user friendly.
Summary: All GPSs should come with a fully paid training course because they're all complicated. I own a Garmin Nuvi for my truck, a handheld for my boat, so I bought this for my buddy's 18 wheeler. The thing that I'm not happy with is the software from Garmin that you install on your PC to plot routes.
