Basic GPS

Din, Amazon
30 September 2010
  • 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 there. But most of the time it does its job. If buying it I would strongly recommend getting the friction pad along with this.

comforter

  • Summary: The comforters are really not wide enough for a king sized bed - just come a little over the edges of the mattress even tho the picture showed them coming down the sides. The duvet covers are nice but are wider than the comforters.

good basic GPS

scherichn5lzd, Ebay
4 December 2009
  • Summary: This is a handy GPS for those who just need the basics. There is no traffic report or the naming of specific names by the voice for each turn like on better models, but I have had a GPS like this for years now and it does its job pretty well. There is always the random time when it gives you the roundabout directions, which is the case with many GPS systems, so be sure you have an idea about the best way to get from, lets say, Jacksonville, FL to Sarasota or else you...

Disapointing GPS navigation device

Simon Raban, Amazon
23 September 2009
  • Summary: After reading a lot of good feedback, I bought this device. It was very easy to use, but its voice navigation was terrible. It also lacked some basic features compared to Tom Tom. I returned the device and bought Tom Tom. I am very happy with Tom Tom, which has much better voice navigation and more features than Garmin.

Good entry level GPS.

Ronald E. Long, Amazon
12 September 2009
  • 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. Amazon is selling the current model with a better feature set for less. Caveat Emptor!!

I works just fine..

Raghavendra K. Seetharama, Amazon
5 September 2009
  • Summary: This GPS works just fine. Delivers what is expected from it. Takes you to the destination whichever route you want to take, acquires satellites faster, sleek & light weighted, has different language options, one can comprehend visual & audio directions well. I have only one issue with it- when we have two streets to choose from sometimes while driving, the GPS at times does not speak up- remains quiet when it should ideally direct you.
