Wasted Money

Marsha W. Turner, Amazon
3 April 2013
  • Summary: When I first got it, you had to keep touching the same buttons over and over to get it to do anything, then when you wanted to go "back" you would hit the "back" button and it would send you to whatever was above. Anyway, called the company where it came from and they told me on the phone how to reconfigure, so I did that and it worked for maybe a week. Now, the warranty is out so that was money just wasted.

Very poor touchscreen, volume hard to adjust

L. Marks, Amazon
6 February 2013
  • Summary: I have the older bulkier Garmins they made a few years ago and recently bought this one. The verdict, the new 'sleek' Garmins absolutely stink. The screens are less sensitive. The keyboard buttons are tool small now. And the volume controller, which is important to be able to adjust on the fly, is now hidden within menus and no longer are a button on the side.

Amazon has great customer service but the product is awful!

Alicia J, Amazon
28 November 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this product for a long road trip following a wonderful three year relationship with another Garmin GPS system. When I received this GPS, there were only two voices available - my understanding is that most have MANY options - this was annoying, but not worth returning the system. Next, I noted that it takes up to ten minutes to find a signal - I live in a major city so I doubt the problem is a lack of towers.

Vision not 20/20

Daveo, Amazon
29 September 2012
  • Summary: I am disappointed in the quality of the aerial photos on the vision card. If you zoom in closer than 0.3 miles, the photo becomes pretty pixilated. Luckily, I bought it for plotting courses. It works nice for that. Would buy again at the price I paid, but not at the $400.00 sticker price. If you are not in a hurry, wait for a rebate sale. Happy trails........................

Not the one to buy

T. McKinch "just a farmer", Amazon
7 December 2011
  • Summary: This GPS does not have some of the best features my old Garmin GPS has. One of the most important features missing is the speed limit of the road you are on. I work in the northern Virginia and DC area. Speed limits on roads can switch from 55 to 35 in the blink of an eye. The maps are also not as accurate as they should be. There have been changes that Garmin has missed for at least two years now.

"So far, so good. Best if destinatinon address is known"

ahard2please1, CNET
2 March 2011
  • Pros: "Where am I? " is best feature. Intuitive override is tolerated - Infinitely patient when instructions are ignored - simply triggers "Recalculating" 4.3" width & power port perfect for Toyota Prius center console.
  • Cons: Could not find Salinas, CA ! Had to use a Salinas Motel Brand instead. Had to purchase USB Cable tor downloading up to date navigation data. First 'free' download took 5 HOURS on wireless connection. Documentation was inadequate.

Less than expected

Traveling Man, Amazon
8 February 2011
  • Summary: Have had 5 garmins always just buy new one instead of paying the $75 to update maps. Thought the free updates would eliminate this problem. This gps works ok but It will lose the map all the time showing you driving on no road. You have to page back on the menue and resent all the time. Working with Garmin to address this issue. Lacks some of the features that I have on my others but for the price $115.00 not bad.Battery life not great.

Don't count on it!

Paracletos, Amazon
22 December 2010
  • Summary: I replaced an older Garmin unit with this one and was, at first, very impressed with the features and screen functions. Before even using it, I registered the unit and updated the firmware and maps. Upon first use, the unit lost satellite reception three times on a relatively short trip. Thought it must be weather related or just the unit getting oriented.
