Good but don't trust the estimated arrival time

Caz, Amazon
5 April 2013
  • Summary: I have owned this Garmin for 2 years and am happy I bought it. I use it in my car when I go travelling on long trips and also for day to day use locally when I'm going somewhere new. I have also used it for walking directions as a pedestrian. I find it much more useful than two previous 'TomTom's I owned. I use it with the volume turned off as I find voice instructions on any GPS annoying and intrusive. What I like about it: * Good screen size and relatively thin.

Lasted only a year

Diane R. Merta, Amazon
8 March 2013
  • Summary: The unit worked great for the one year warranty. The battery started giving us problems in 13 months. Called Garmin which informed us that this is a discontinued item and you cannot change the battery. Went back to Magellen since we have had two Garmins and each only lasted just over the year warranty.

Great GPS

-P, Amazon
24 February 2013
  • Summary: Bought this as a gift for my parents who had been through many GPS units and unhappy with. I bought this one because it had a large screen, was slim and had no advertisements. (be careful, the other model of this one with "free maps" puts ads on the unit that pop up) I was worried it would be returned because they have not found one they liked yet. They love it.

Nice wide screen

Larry Osborne, Amazon

  • Summary: have no complaints, replaced a Magellan which died after 3 years. If this one lasts that long I wont complain about its value either. It works as well as or a bit better than the Magellan, but rather hard to tell since no side by side comparison was made.

Speaks street names - not perfect, but quite useful

Ahikanana, Amazon
7 May 2012
  • 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. Spoken street names is a BIG plus, though it's kind of a joke when it has to interpret non-Western European names. I like that you can insert your own micro-SD card. I filled mine up with pictures so I can show off to others like people do with their smartphones.

Free Lifetime Map Updates? Really?

Richard Stolz, Amazon
2 May 2012
  • 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. But then I am told that the app "continually checks for available map updates and automatically downloads them to your computer". This got me worried. Do I need ANOTHER app living its own life in MY PC? Do I need constant downloads? The GPS unit will be sitting in my car.

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. This is a great model, newer features but no traffic or ads, no larger cord but 5 inch screen is much easier to read! Love this model!!
