Summary: It is very good value for money and easy of use , but it does not have many features which more expensive models have( Audio prompts of streets). It does take a while to relocate the address and there was times in which you follow the instructions and it has to recalculate again and again to get you...
My charmin' Garmin takes me for a ride---recalculate, anyone?

Summary: still some "glitches" which we "locals" ignore; absence of many Jewish houses of worship in the "places of interest"; unclear instructions for setting displays; eg: emphasizing time of arrival; or to speed up simulating route.
Summary: A good basic GPS. Nothing fancy but should satisfy most needs. When my order was placed in August the Amazon price was $99.99 which I considered a good buy. Since then, the price today, 9/12/09, has risen to $199.99 which is no longer a good deal for this discontinued model.
Summary: This is my second GPS, a replacement after my Magellian died. The Magellian lasted about two years. Again I decided to purchase a entry level model becasue of price. The Garmin is a nice unit for the price. One reason why I decided on this unit was because it had maps of the US and Canada.
Summary: The GPS can not do search. It take very long time to find place 200 miles away from my location. For example, if you type "tire", it will find tire store 200 miles from my home. The one I brought two years ago can do all the search But that GPS some have problem for the touch screen.
