Summary: I work as a field service engineer so rely heavily on decent satnavs and have been through quite a few. This one I hate more than any other that I have seen. I replaced my Tomtom with this diabolical piece of crap in the hope that it might help me miss a few traffic jams. Did it? In short NO.
Summary: I bought this Garmin device after a frustrating 2 weeks (20hrs direct time plus over 20GB of download capacity) attempting to get a new TomTom device to update its maps successfully. By contrast, this unit downloaded and installed new maps and other updated software like a dream. So far it works perfectly well.
Summary: I bought this satnav for a journey through France and down to south west Spain and back as my previous satnav is one of those that occasionally turns itself off for no reason and I did not want to be left stranded with no working satnav. I am very pleased I chose this model. It is quick to load up and find the satellites, the diagram of the lanes at major junctions is really helpful and surprisingly accurate in its detail and the instructions timely and clear.
Summary: I bought this to replace a Tom Tom. It works well - it's intuitive to use (needs to be; there is no manual with it), graphics are good, directions clear, found satellites quickly, rerouted quickly, traffic updates worked well, light and small to carry. With the 'lifetime' maps and traffic alerts it's very good value (lifetime defined by the manufacturer to some degree but I am sure they won't withdraw the services in the near future). My only caution is the screen size.
easy to use / free lifetime maps and traffic and cameras

Summary: This Garmin sat nav is just as good as my old tom-tom, even better since you don't have to pay for traffic anymore as this one comes with lifetime free maps and traffic. I would fully recommend this sat nav to anyone! (also comes with comes with micro sd slot on the bottom) AND comes with micro sd slot.
Summary: non avrei mai pensato che fosse meglio del tom tom .pregi velocissimo nel trovare satelliti ti da sempre 3 opzioni di percorsi informazioni precise nelle svolte e già avuto modo di provare il ricevitore di traffico domenica sulla A 15 9 km di coda causa lavori in corso mi ha calcolato percorso subito per evitare la traffico veramente consigliato.
