Summary: We made the mistake of purchasing this Garmin GPS just before leaving on a road trip and had not used a portable GPS prior to leaving on the trip. Not having the experience and not being techies we found it not particularly user friendly.
Summary: I bought this to drive from St. Louis, MO to Ft. Meyers, Florida and back. When I received it I connected it to my PC with a spare mini USB cable (Doe not come with one) and was able to update the maps in it for free one time. It did not take long.
Summary: So far, this is the second Garmin Nuvi I bought; the first one is still working beautifully. This second one has acted up as soon as it was turned on and still freezes up on me. May have to return it.
Summary: I already own the Garmin Nuvi 660 and Nuvi 350, which I have reviewed on Amazon; I also have a built in GPS unit on one of the cars that I own; and I have Magellan Roadmate on my iPod Touch. I like this unit better than any of them. Here is why. 1.
