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: Just received my Garmin GPS last night - Set up took a couple of hours and that was just installing the Garmin map updater on my home computer. Once done downloaded map updates (left on overnight). Tried it this morning and seems to be accurate. Can't wait to see how it performs in 2 wks when I take it to South Florida for a much needed road trip.
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.
Summary: Bought two of of these refurbs, one for wife one for self. Both worked great - at first. After two weeks mine seized up. Hats off to this site: The return process and payment credit for my defective unit was painless and fast. We own three other Garmins. All work great. I'm sure the problem with the one I returned (remember it was a refurbished unit) is the exception rather than the rule. We would not hesitate to buy another Garmin GPS, new or otherwise.
