Perfect for me

mcs1505, Amazon
1 December 2013
  • Summary: I used to get lost every single time I went anywhere. Not anymore. I love my little GPS. It's the perfect size and a great value. You can continue to update the maps so you dont need to buy a new system. I've had mine for 4 or 5 years and it's still going strong.

Works but has a slow response time.

Kavan Yen, Amazon
27 November 2013
  • Summary: It works and does the job as a GPS. The only thing that I have an issue with is that the response time from the voice navigation is slow. I would miss a few turns because of that delay. If you rely on audio for your navigation, you will end up making lots of U-turns and such.

Love Garmin

ChrisG, Amazon
26 January 2013
  • Summary: Have yet to use the maps in NZ but have every expectation they will be the usual Garmin quality. Cannot imagine now what exploring a new country would be like without a good GPS to guide you, increases confidence, and therefore enjoyment, greatly. Great price from Amazon and prompt delivery

Bad Workmen Blaming their Tools?

Amazon
21 October 2012
  • Summary: Sorry Guys & Gals, but reading some of the negative reviews made me feel I should spring to the defence of Garmin and it's mostly elegant and efficient range of navigators. Recurring themes seems to be that reviewers are blaming the map makers; blaming the garmin unit; blaming both of those; blaming...

Great because it is small

George Schuler, Amazon
10 August 2011
  • Summary: The smaller size of the GPs is actually more helpful as I can easily slide it into my pocket when walking/biking around in new cities. I think wider size GPS just shows you the redundant streets on the sides which are anyways not useful.

Serves it's purpose

Anonymous, Newegg
14 June 2011
  • Summary: Bought this as an aid for my second job as a pizza delivery guy. Does pretty much what everything that I wanted it to do. One thing that I useful that I haven't seen mentioned is that you can enter a destination along with a stop before end point. Very useful.
  • Pros: Good price. Lifetime maps. No need for any accessories. Windshield mount included, good enough for me. Have not had system crash when updating maps that others have mentioned, but then again I take my time and don't try to rush through processes. First update took a while. Updated maps are fairly...
  • Cons: Don't care for the keyboard, not qwerty. Also don't care for having to enter the city for every address that I look up. After 3 months of use, I have had to enter a different city maybe twice out of at least a couple hundred entries. Maybe with other models you don't have to, I don't know
