Summary: I feel it's easy to give 5 stars for a Garmin because it out preforms the others. You can't go wrong buying a Garmin product. I have been using GPS's for at lease 15 + years. the only one that stopped working was a off brand, cheap Chinese GPS. THIS GPS HAS ALL A TRAVELER NEEDS TO GET HIM OR HER FROM POINT A TO Z AND ANYWHERES INBETWEEN.
It has saved me Time and Money! I AM VERY FOND OF MY GARMIN!

Summary: My Garmin is of Paramount importance to me. I am a Private Tutor and consider myself to be VERY THRIFTY. I couldn't fathom spending over $150.00 on something I could just look up on Google Maps. However, I don't have internet on my phone and could really use a GPS. So when I saw that I could purchase a GPS for less than $100.00, I jumped on it! It was dangerous and frustrating at times trying to find a house by reading my own short hand scribbled on paper.
Summary: Exceptional gps, great price, although reconditioned it appears to be brand new. Wish i would have bought one years ago. Purchased this for everyday use, as i do a lot driving in my job. Great for finding addresses that you do not frequent. If the address has many different ways to get there, the gps will occasionally choose not the most efficient way to get there, so it helps to have a general idea of where you are going.
Summary: I like by Garmin, The voice is very smooth and the features help me get around easily. I really like the features that help me be more efficient in my driving and economical overall. This was a refurbished model and it came looking brand new and after updating the software, has performed flawlessly.
Summary: The Garmin is nice and will get you there. But be prepared for 3 hr updates! After I did the initial update, no satellites could be found. I then found out there is ANOTHER program that does the firmware update. (Garmin installs 4 programs; competitor 2.) So another >1 hr was spent on that. I've done updates to Garmin before and assumed they have their act together by now. No dice.
Discounted GPS with lots of freebies!! Well worth the money !!!

Summary: I bought this because I travel every so often and I am not good at directions. This is an awesome little gps unit. Only bad is updating the unit. Make sure you got a fast internet connection and lots of time to kill. Preferably 2-4 days. Yes..., Garmins servers are extremely slow when it comes to downloading to your GPS unit. Make sure you get all map updates, software updates, and don't do like me and expect the whole 48 continental US map to fit on it either.
