Summary: I LOVED getting this GPS it is awesome! I am terrible with directions and it has saved me multiple times. The only down side is it costs about the same price that I bought it for to update the maps. I mean I have had it over a year but I really don't want to pay $100 to update it.
Summary: I purchased this and am very happy to say that the "Factory Refurbished" is as perfect as can be. Great unit, very easy to use, relatively accurate (within 20 - 25 ft so I good with that). There are many options with the unit, most that I may not use but it's nice to have them if you want to toy with it. Easily remove it from the base and carry in hand. Will recommend this one!
Summary: This is my third GPS unit in six years - so it has lots of new stuff I had not seen before. I don't know where Garmin in market leadership, but stuff I really like in this unit: 1) Lane indicators -- very helpful in keeping you going in the right lane for exits. 2) Car speed versus posted speed -- a good check on your cruise control A few things I have noticed that I don't like: 1) Updates needed b/c of a bad turn or changed mind seem to lag a few seconds longer than...
Worked for less than a week...Garmin replaced with new unit.

Summary: I have purchased several Garmin units for the family. I have not had any problems what-so-ever....until this one. I purchased as a gift for my sister. Worked fine for one trip, then would stick on the Garmin screen. After calling TECH SUPPORT a few times, explaining the problems, they agreed that it was a Firmware issue. I got an RMA, returned the unit, and they replaced with a brand new unit with lifetime map updates!
