Summary: I purchased this item Jan 8 2012. And about 3 weeks ago it just died. Won't charge in the car. Won't charge via USB. And totally unrecognizable by Garmin online when I tried to connect it and troubleshoot. Soft reboot didn't work.
Incredibly frustrating - and probably nothing you can do about it

Summary: I wanted to upgrade from my old TomTom One. Garmin is incredibly well-reviewed on Amazon, so I figured I couldn't go wrong. I also own a garmin backpacking gos - the etrex vista HCX. Well, I have to say I was incredibly disappointed: 1. The directions are often not the fastest.
Summary: Initially satisfied, but then tried to download the free lifetime map updates and found that there was insufficient space on the device for the whole of Europe. We had to settle for Western Europe only, or incur the additional cost and inconvenience of buying an SD card for additional space.
Summary: Bought six months back. Not a great experience.. The traffic detection stuff seems flaky - sometimes it points out upcoming traffic jams that aren't there. In fairness, it can only be as good as the feed data it gets. Sometimes it won't switch on. Tried holding down the on/off switch, nothing.
