Summary: Overall Four Stars - I purchased this unit because I was going on a trip up north and do not like to drive in unfamiliar locations. This kind of activity is kept to a minimum, which is why I bought this lower priced GPS unit.
Summary: I have used this unit when I was in a new town. It is great for finding stores and resturants. The directions are sometimes roundabout and it doesnt know about new freeways that have reciently opened . It would be nice if Garmin would offer updated SD chip maps yearly at a reasonable price.
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.
Excerpt: I passed my driving test in July 2009 and needed a Sat Nav as I live in a city I didn't grow up in so wasn't overly familiar with the roads. My husband gifted me this one as a 'well done for passing the test' present.
