Voice Recognition Doesn't Work and Traffic Adviseries are Just Annoying
28 July 2014
Summary: I paid extra for this unit to get the voice recognition and traffic alerts. Neither work worth a flip. The navigation works fine. If I were rating the navigation only it would get four stars, but the navigation is just like the cheaper models.
Summary: I purchased this model for $50 more for the voice command feature. It doesn't understand anything I say. For example, I say "120 washington Ave, Orangeburg, NY" it responds with 15 tomahawk st, osh kosh, ID! OK, s I try it again... 1-2-0 Waa-shi-ng-ton a-v-e-n-u-e... you get the point...
Summary: This is the 4th Garmin I have used. It by far is the most disappointing. The pluses are that it is faster calculating routes than the second generation models. There were several reasons I disliked this model. First, the traffic feature is practically worthless.
Summary: I have had my Garmin with the European maps for almost 3 months, it was awesome to use and very helpful with the lane assist feature, especially for use in UK. Yesterday I was using the Garmin on a road trip, I turned it off when I reached my destination, came back to car and tried to switch it back...
Summary: Worked great out of the box. Neat little gadget. Then I tried to update the maps. First, their site said it needed a firmware update, which I installed. Garmin must have the slowest server on the planet. It took 36 hours to download the current North America map.
Summary: I have not had a sat nav before so I thought I'd get the Garmin with Cyclops and lifetime maps. The first day was fine. I set it up online and got an email from Garmin thanking me for registering it.
Summary: My first sat-nav was a Garmin, but 4 years down the line, and around £75 for new maps, I thought I may as well buy a new unit with lifetime maps (and traffic). Perfect size, easy to use, it's a great device.
Summary: Seit zehn Jahren benutze ich mobile Navigationsgeräte, darunter unterschiedliche Hersteller wie garmin, Blaupunkt und andere. Ein Firmware- und komplettes Kartenupdate war auch in der Vergangenheit immer mal wieder von Luftanhalten und Daumendrücken begleitet..
