Summary: I have an older Streetpilot 2610, which I have used for years as a motorcycle GPS, it's waterproof, and accurate, but difficult at times to enter an address and have the GPS unit find the address. Street, is sometimes spelled out, sometimes "St.
Summary: I already own a Magellan Roadmate 1700 GPS unit but my wife needed one for her car as I take mine when I'm on travel. After a bit of research we choose this instead of another Magellan mostly due to price and screen size.
Summary: I have had this product for 1 month, and so far so good. It provides clear directions most of the time.

Summary: REVIEW UPDATE 26 Mar 2012 Note: I have updated this review several times, going from a negative first impression (2-stars), through an acceptance (3-stars), and now to an appreciation (4-stars).
Summary: I bought this for $50 and I am very happy. The touch screen is older, not like a smartphone, meaning you might have to use your nail opposed to your finger tip. It doesn't have voice to text or anything fancy. Does include retail locations, but nothing like you would find on Google maps.
Summary: I would have given it 5 stars if it weren't for two things. First, there are times where it searches for a satellite for quite a while. I loaned it to my coworker and it never actually found a satellite the entire time she had it (about 30 minutes).
Summary: After two months of use in and around NY/NJ it has never steered me wrong. It recalculates quickly with easy to follow directions. Just had to make sure settings were what I wanted: fastest or shortest route. The only quip is battery life - my two year old smartphone lasts longer
Summary: It gets me where I need to go. My needs are pretty basic. It does take a little bit of time to get a satelite signal though and once in a while, it is completely off. The screen had me driving in a lake once. It was off about 15 feet.
