Summary: After loading it, it died twice and had to be restarted to work. As a longtime "Wild Flower Production" user, I thought there would be significant up grades and improvements. There weren't. Loading maps into the GPS is easy.
Summary: It is a easy machine to use, and I really like the lifetime map updates. The big downside as far as I'm concerned is the machines inability to hold the whole country's maps, and having to reload area maps if I'm traveling.
Summary: This unit is very easy to use right out of the box - very simple menu and settings. Points of interest feature is very useful for finding places to eat, shop, pump gas, etc. Device is quick at producing directions and also at rerouting.
Summary: The first thing I noticed is that the points of interest have been reduced from 7 million of to 6 million, and the language choices are reduced to 3. The computer-generated voices are mediocre, though I found the male voice more understandable.
Summary: We own one that works fine. Bought one for my parent's anniversary, and when you turn it on, it seems to think it is at a location in Chicago (which wouldn't be such a problem, except that we are in the state of Delaware!). Needless to say, it has difficulty locating a satellite...
Summary: I had a Garmin 765 model. It worked well especially the touch screen. I bought Garmin 1300 after 765 was accidently dropped on the floor and broke. I have problem finding some addresses even after I downloaded and updated the map. I also have problem keying in the information.
