Great value for the money if loaded with current updated to get started.

Summary: I bought this product for unexpected travel. I was sold on the ideal of free life time map updates and of course the reputation of GARMIN being a top rated brand. However, I did not know the current updated map for the product was not on the device and has to be down loaded. Not all of us elder ones can afford a computer on a fixed income or have need of a computer daily.
Summary: THIS GPS HAS VERY GOOD FEATURES. THE ONLY PROBLEM I FIND WITH THIS UNIT IS, THE VOLUME IS WAY TOO LOW AN IT CAN NOT BE RAISED HIGH ENOUGH FOR USEAGE IN A NOISY AREA. I THINK THE SPEAKER SHOULD BE MOUNTED ON THE FRONT, NOT THE BACK.
"For a newer model release, it is just not up to par!"

Pros: Good Graphics
Cons: Voice recognition is terrible, it better be absolutely quiet in the vehicle and you must speak at the unit and super clear. 2010 maps are worse than 2007 maps. Going through favorites with the voice recognition is ridiculous. Power button lousy.
