Summary: This is my second iQueM4. I lost the first one in an accident and, years after the discontinuity of this product I desperately searched for the same product. It is a concept that has dissapeared in the market. But I love the idea: a Pocket PC integrated with a GPS.
Summary: The garmin products have a serious design flaw because they don't have a user replaceble battery. Many users will find that they need to replace their batteries in about 15 months. Each time you charge or plug in your garmin, the battery gradually loses it's ability to store power.
Summary: The preloaded maps work great. I have had terrible problems with the plug and play street maps however. Avoid them. Also, customer service won't help you unless you have registered your device. Do it online as soon as you get the device.
Summary: I bought this product for 2 weeks and I enjoy using it. The GPS function is great except that it takes about 30 seconds to search for signals at the beginning of each trip. The PDA function is satisfactory. The only weakness is that the built-in memory is slightly small.
Summary: Used it for cross-USA NY-CA, so learned a-lot about it. It performed very well, probably saved me at least 1/2 an hour every day looking at maps, and still getting lost. As most GPS products, it does Not have "text-to-speech", i.e. it tells you turn right/left, take exit etc.
Summary: Pros ------ 1.) You can import favorites from your other Garmin GPS straight into the M4 using MapSource software. Very time saving. 2.) Mp3 player quality was outstanding. 3.) Tablet text recognition was outstanding. 4.) Transferring files greater than 50 megs worked unlike the doc described. 5.
Summary: I very much like the M4. The calender is easy to use and so is the gps system. The gps system will recalculate your route if you get off course. You can also save specific addresses and delete them later if you want.
Summary: I seem to have a GPS for every kind of activity I do and everyone of them excel, and also have weaknesses in one way or another. I recently parted ways with my BMW 330 that had a build-in Navigational system that was an excellent product once you got past the user interface.
