Summary: To those people who don't use separate gps units since there smartphone has it installed just remember your phone is using google maps which are great but what happens when you don't get cell service in those mountain areas or low areas where signal just drops ,these units use satellite which for the most part I always keep mine handy just for the signal reason since I travel a lot plus this unit gives you free lifetime maps which is what ltm stands for just register...
Great product except for some difficulties connecting it o my computer.

Summary: Excellent product. Only drawback was getting the unit to connect with my computer. Turns out the memory was full so it can't connect properly in this condition. Garmin should make this situation more clear. But otherwise very happy with this unit.
Feature Rich GPS at a very economical price & Blue Tooth as well!

Summary: Excellent unit. With bluetooth built in along with free maps & traffic, what more could a traveler need from a GPS device? The unit quickly acquires satellites and you get on your way quickly. I have a Magellan and at one time owned a TomTom. hands down this is my best purchase yet on GPS's.
Summary: I loved my old Garmin GPS, but the maps were outdated and not updateable. This GPS can be updated via a USB connector on my PC for a life time. The screen is large enough to be easily seen while driving and the voice prompts are clear and easily understood. It is much more accurate than my old unit and always tells me to turn well in advance and tells me the street name to turn on.
Summary: I have had Garmin in the past and am pleased with the ease of it's operation. Very good display and voice options. On screen display is nice and easy for your operation. I recommend this to all my friends.
Summary: Wonderful GPS, Easy to use, Fast Start, A plethora of features will leave you fully satisfied and happy. Bluetooth connections allow you to plug in your Bluetooth set and talk through the console for safe driving. Detailed directions can give you traffic updates, turn-by-turn information, walking directions and highlight points of interest.
