Summary: Among the features that I love the most is the voice activation. Now I can be on the move, talk to the Nuvi and it will do what I need it to do. I have a GPS in my car but this one provides free updates for life and for what it costs, I would only get two updates on my car.
Summary: I finally threw in the towel with my Tom-Tom. The long satellite acquisition times even with their weekly download of satellite positions and its habit of resetting when getting near the destination got me to buy another Garmin.
OUTSTANDING GPS with outstanding features. An absolute 5 star device with a few very minor quibbles

Summary: For my money, this is a perfect little GPS unit. I am coming from an old Nuvi 360. I loved that thing and was a huge proponent of the Garmin GPS systems. I talked them up to anyone who would listen.
Summary: You can pay more but you cannot get more than what this unit has to offer. I drive professionally for Lyft and Google maps which I used on my phone would often take me a mile out of my way. My 10 year old Garmin was better but cumbersome to use.
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.
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.
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).
Summary: I don't appreciate that buying a GPS is so convoluted. After a lot of research I found this to be a good mix of features and price. The unit does everything I need. There are a lot of different models that appear to be the same thing, some only at certain stores others simply no longer made.
