Excellent GPS Unit

Biketracker, Amazon
28 December 2014
  • 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.

Hands free keeps EVERYBODY safer.

  • 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.

Really nice product until you are really tired

Jeff Newton, Amazon
3 July 2014
  • 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

Amazon Customer "Wordaholic", Amazon
13 June 2014
  • 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...

"Traffic" isn't free

Bill Sandefur, Amazon
10 June 2014
  • 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.

Excellent value!

  • Summary: Would have given it 5 stars but for the washed out look of the screen colors. My last Nuvi had spoiled me with brilliant graphics on the screen. I would definitely recommend to friends.

Wow what a difference in 5 years

R. Starr, Amazon
21 January 2014
  • 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...

Good GPS unit, but not perfect

nacho, Amazon
6 January 2014
  • 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.
