Summary: I purchased GPS primarily fro Europe, it works flawlessly. Please note: make sure you update the firmware and maps prior to your trip because of obvious reasons updated maps and also GPS lock fixes.
Summary: Went to Europe with wife and kids to spent 21 days driving. Without this product I could not have done it. Great GPS, very precise in all countries I drove (luxembourg, germany, italy, switzerland, france, monaco). I would buy it again in a heart beat. We continue to use it in the US on a daily/weekly basis. The only complain is that sometimes it takes a while to find the satellite. Other than that we love it.
Save your money for something that really works!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Summary: we bought this in 2011 with a lifetime map upgrade included in the price....but what we found out later is that the maps no longer fit on the card installed with the device and they dicontinued the lifetime upgrades......and here is the kicker they want almost $90 to let you install maps that won't fit on the device.....what a deal!!!!!! I will NOT buy anymore Garmin products ever...........
Best value due to N. America and Euro maps included

Summary: Best value in a GPS, if you travel to Europe, it includes all the maps. Be sure to get a 4gb micro SD card, and download and update all the maps. The recent update to Garmins site makes keeping your unit up to date very easy. There were two firmware updates, and North America and Europe map updates. The internal memory only has room for the basic installed maps, so be sure to have a fresh SD card in place before you download the maps. Lifetime traffic is great...
Good product that will come in handy during travels to Europe.

Summary: My only disappointment is that this Garmin version does not announce the expected street name when approaching the turn. This has been an appreciated feature on our previous Garmin GPS models.
