Speaks street names - not perfect, but quite useful

Ahikanana, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this because of the overall positive reviews by other users & because it doesn't have ad supported "free" features that I've read can be quite annoying and perhaps dangerous.

  • Summary: I was about to click the BUY button, but decided to first check out the [...] website. What I have learned is that I would need to load a special app, "Garmin Lifetime Updater", which is fine.

Perfect solution!

Careful shopper, Amazon
29 September 2011
  • Summary: My old Garmin went out after being subjected to summer temperatures of over 100 degrees daily for months! I wanted something better but after researching the new Garmins didn't like all the negatives about traffic, on screen ads and larger cords.

dgminer, Amazon

  • Summary: Shows the shortest route, even if it takes you off main roads need to watch what it saids. Overall very good, like the time to arrival, screen is clean and that it shows how fast your going vs the speed limit
