Summary: Probably the most un-friendly user interface you'll ever try: Saving a destination is a nightmare, and that is, if you can find how to do it. No Zip search, but the Autofill will test your patience and sanity: You have to try it to believe it! The search will also propose all locations in your surrounding states: Looking for "Main Street" will give you 400 possibilities. Then comes the Autofill... I am in MA, so you try to refine your search and type "MA".
Pros: turns on fast
Cons: no zip search stupid autofill very bad route choice no "easy" save
WASTES MORE TIME THAN IT SAVES/DOESN'T RECOGNIZE MOST ADDRESSES/ALWAYS LOST
6 January 2014
Summary: I hate this thing! Even when entering a full/correct address it doesn't recognize an address. And yet, if I re-enter just using the company name it shows with the SAME ADDRESS!? I have to try 2-4 different entry options before it will recognize a location! It randomly takes me off-route for no reason and without requesting an alternate route! It gets street names wrong causing me to miss exits! It doesn't show the full route, only the starting point!
Summary: I thought the community should know that Amazon overcharged me $30 due to a site malfunction and then refused to assist in adjusting the total when it was brought to their attention. I'm a prime member with over 200 successful orders and have never contacted support until this order. What I found was a big surprise to me that they care nothing about their customers and will allow them to be overcharged with no recourse.
Summary: This product does not says anywhere that it is a Refurbished Unit!. It sells as new on this ad, but it is a used one. I call Amazon and even the customer service agent, told me that he doesn't see any "refurbished" word in the product description. The information is misleading!
Summary: I think the GPS that we got is defective. After downloading current maps, It shows roadways that have not existed for years. It also shows only liquor stores when you try to search for food locations. Also the locations that it shows are over a hundred miles from the GPS's current location. We had the same model and it worked very well. We ordered this one to replace it when it was stolen. We will attempt to have the defective GPS replaced with the same model.
Summary: I had been using a Garmin Roadmate 640 for about 7 years and although it still works, it needed replacement. I bought a Garmin 2455LMT and at first thought it was a vast improvement, but within 6 weeks it stopped working totally - blank screen. I returned it to Costco and bought another 2455LMT about three weeks ago and yesterday it also stopped working. My next stop is at Costco to return it and buy another GPS, but not this model again and probably not a Garmin.
Summary: I have a 80$ Tomtom which I bought 2 yrs back and I think it does a better job than this. 3 Major Drawbacks I have noticed. 1) The traffic update feature is a joke. It hugely over estimates traffic delays and takes me through diversion which would take 5 times longer than if I had got stuck in the traffic. 2) Incomplete directory. Just one instance to prove this point. I typed in DMV in the the search box and it did not find the DMV office 3 miles from my home.
