Summary: Really nice product until you are really tired, late at night and it doesn't understand your voice command. Kind of like the Big Bang Theory episodes with Siri. Still overall a big improvement over my old Nuvi.
Garmin provides maximum functionality for a reasonable price

Summary: I have used various GPS devices over the years, including several software versions that ran on PDA's in the olden days as well as the modern Google Maps on a Nexus 5. However I still keep a Garmin in my vehicle, because sometimes you want to have the exact tool for the job instead of having to use a multi-tool that doesn't exactly fit that screw slot. The Garmin is designed to provide you with what you need to get to the place you are going.
Summary: I assumed when I ordered GPS with "traffic" that the traffic would come included. I was disappointed to learn I had to pay an additional $20 for the traffic service. They should put that in the ad.
Summary: This Garmin replaced a 2008 Garmin and what a difference. I liked my old Garmin Nuvi 750 but the 2013 models are amazing. The user interface has had a significant overhaul and while it will take me a little time to remember how to access features, I'm very pleased with the layout and the responsiveness of the touch screen, OS and CPU.
Summary: I wanted to get a GPS unit for my car, I have used portable Garmin units for years and really like how they work. Unfortunately I wished some of the features of the portable units were readily available as they are on the Nuvi. I work an live in an interface area where in a matter of minutes I go from urban to rural forest or desert. While this unit is great for city driving directions it lacks topography maps and the ability to navigate by entering lat longs.
Summary: Basically I am very satisfied with this Garmin. While I haven't been to enough unfamiliar places since I got it to be that familiar with the accuracy of maps, so far it has been fine. The function of a couple of features aren't as clear as I wish they were...meaning I am going to have to spend more time figuring them out...saving formerly used addresses for future use, as one example. Overall it is fine and a purchas I am happy with.
Summary: This is my second Garmin. Far better than prior edition. Better map and lane display. Voice directions much improved and more accurate. Recent trip to east coast and Canada - excellent directions to all entries. Like lifetime map and traffic.
Summary: I bought this for my wife and thank goodness for Garmin, it has saved her IDK how many times. She used to have a Tom-tom and after it died, I bought her this Garmin (personally I am a Garmin fan I have a VERY old one that still works great). She loves it, the voice commands are her favorite feature she uses them all the time to remain hands free. Plus this newer model finds a Sat signal almost instantly and is always ready to get my wife where she is going.
