"No Warranty"

  • Pros: Product doesn't hold a candle to the Tom Tom for ease of use and updates.
  • Cons: Garmin does not give any warranty. I had a 2 week old unit that they have had for 3 months and they will not repair it. Each time I contact them I get a different "specialist". Each time they want some extra info. I gave up and bought a Tom Tom!

Not full of information

  • Summary: Many of the places I want to get to are not listed on the GPS. You have to know the address of the major mall, for example, in a large city to get to it by GPS. Seems like that would already be programmed in the system. I have to look up the address of too many places before I leave the house in order to get to it by GPS. The shortcuts don't work very well. It is quite disappointing.

  • Excerpt: "Operating the unit is easy. One slide switch on top to start it up. This can also be locked. It has a full post code entry.

Also you can just use the map function if you want to find your own way. There are plenty of extras in it such as "Favourites" and searching for entertainment, ...

  • Excerpt: Если можно было бы устанавливать другие карты,то цены ему не было,т.к качество исполнения устройства на 5+,а внутренностей конечно только на3
  • Pros: 1.Качество сборки. 2.Хорошо держит заряд(до 4 ч) 3.Удобный интерфейс. 4.Не разу не глючил и не грелся!!! 5.Спутник ловит быстро.
  • Cons: Недостатки их конечно хватает и связаны в основном с картографией: Неодекватные карты(нет номеров домов с корпусами),ведёт ,как и многие заметили,явно некорректно.Если не знаешь дороги то может завести в тупик.Обновления не помогли! На оф сайте пишит,что обновлений карт для данной модели нет! Завышенная цена(за бренд).Брал в 2008 за 10тыс.р
