Summary: I have had this gps for over a year and haven't had any problems. Loved the updated maps every quarter. I won't get one without that feature again. the traffic updater seems pretty much useless.
Summary: I loveD it... UNTIL I updated it. About 3,000 miles later the charger that came with my Garmin wouldn't hold a charge to the battery and it died. I couldn't use the plug that came with the Garmin that goes into the bracket that holds the Garmin so I had to buy a charger for the Garmin that fits...
Summary: Every few years I update my GPS when there are some features that I think are worth it, and this unit has a bunch of useful features. The traffic alerts update pretty quickly and have helped me avoid quite a few delays.
Summary: So far I am happy with this Garmin product. It has met all my expectations for a GPS car type unit. I did not want to mount it on the windshield, so I ordered a disk that can be used to mount it on the dash. The online pdf formated manual is very comprehensive and helpful.
Summary: I used to use Magellan GPS devices. Now, I am a total convert. As soon as I turned it on, I noticed that it figures out the route much quicker than my old one did. I like the display and it has alot of POI's programmed in. :)
Summary: Product is great. Shipping option was great. Just a negative feedback is that the response time in Downtown traffic is slightly less than compared to Magellan. I have used Navigon, Magellan and this is the third. Magellan boot time is more, but response after booting is fast.
Summary: Ended up buying this because I was tired of running down my smartphone battery when I needed a GPS. It didnt help that I always seem to get a call just when I needed to navigate and interchange or make an exit.
Summary: I have had a Tom Tom for five years. We are travelling to Italy and my Tom Tom was too old to handle international maps. So, I researched the GPS devices for three months and read all of the comments posted to this site and other sites about different brands.
Summary: I first was wondering if I should get a Garmin since I had been using TomTom for so many year. The last thing that I want to do is to deal with a different user interface. It turned out that I needed not worry at all.
Summary: After reading other reviews, I was worried that there would be annoying ads popping up all the time. I've had the product for a month now, and I have yet to see an ad. I don't know what all the fuss is about! It is very user-friendly, but it still has a few small issues.
