Summary: One of the first on the market. This is the one and only GPS I have owned/bought. It has lasted me over a dozen years already. Who need a color screen, this one works great and is very easy on batteries.
Summary: An executive plaything that can't do what a buyer wouldexpect. Garmin.s mapsouce products are oudated, inaccurate, andoverpriced. The etrex ... does all that this unit can do and it ishalf the price. Remenber keep it simple stupid.
Summary: I have been following the development of GPS systems over the last ten years and this is a powerful compact GPS that you can get accurate street level maps that are downloadable from your computer.
Summary: I have owned this unit for about 18 months and have absolutely no regrets. Yes, it did take a few weeks to learn how to use the unit, but it was well worth the time. I found the easiest way to learn was to use it while navigating on long trips.
Summary: The primary use for my GPS is city driving, and in LA it is a huge help. To use this unit for city driving you must also purchase the MetroGuide USA CD's. These CD's can upload data to the eMap. This data includes addresses, businesses, and surface streets.
Summary: Although I've been very happy for my eMap that I got for Christmas, I've been frustrated with the lack of documentation. The documentation for the unit (there is also a guide to the PC software) is limited to a quick start sheet and a slim printed "manual" - which contains little more information...
Summary: This is a nice unit, and it is interesting to read the glowing reviews of customers who have owned the Garmin eMap for two or three weeks. I have owned the unit for over a year. It works well in the US. It will not guide you street by street to a location, but it will guide you "as the crow flys.
Summary: had my e-Map for over a month now and really love it. good acuracy, fast positioning, and easy to use software. make sure to download the latest sw from the garmin web site. it's free and has useful new features not in the software shipped with the unit.
