Summary: Bought this for my wife quite some time ago. It's been working without any issues. I've seen complaints about the proprietary power adapter which doesn't pose an issue for us. It does seem to change the directions to the same location once in a while. we don't know based on what. The only feature I don't care for is that it keeps showing where you have been driving. We haven't checked if that can be turned off though.

Summary: Bought this along with the portable friction mount. The mount is definitely worth the purchase if you are going to use the Garmin on the dash. This Garmin is easy to use and come with lifetime updates. I have yet to update mine. So, I am unaware how long it takes. I have heard it can take a while.
Summary: Nice wide screen for better visual. the lifetime maps and traffic updated are a priceless feature to have on any gps. Garmin is the originator of personal gps and has my 5 star vote on all there products that I have purchased.
excellent choice for a first time gps, does a good job
