Perfect for me

mcs1505, Amazon

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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...

Very handy

Anonymous, Newegg
17 July 2012
  • Summary: Got this refurbished some time ago and have been using it a lot. You'll probably want to update the map because it is a bit outdated. The update process was easy but it was over USB1 which meant about an hour or so to transfer the 1+ gig map update.
  • Pros: Smallish unit and the price was nice.
  • Cons: Outside of the fact that the map is old, there's not much wrong with the unit.

Great because it is small

George Schuler, Amazon

  • 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.
