Be Very careful about the "Lifetime"story.Not necessarily true
25 October 2015
Summary: It has been impossible to ever update this produt. Garmin makes it so complicated. Also if you don't read the fine print and dont register the product on time, it gets worse and your lifetime map purchase is useless.
Summary: My old GPS, not a Garmin, was so old that they can't even update the maps anymore, and it was time to upgrade. Frustrated with that company's customer "service," I decided not to buy from them again, even though I liked the GPS itself. I read reviews and landed on this model. MISTAKE!!!
Summary: Pretty disappointed.....I purchased this model specifically because it stated "traffic" as one of its features. When we tried to use that feature, an error box popped up stating that we either don't have a traffic subscription, or need to plug in with a traffic receiver cable.

Summary: I need a GPS to track unexpected traffic because I work 72 miles from my home. If there is a backup I need an alternative way to go. I had a TomTom but they have their live traffic updates updates through your smart phone.
I wouldn't count on this thing in the Mohave Desert!

Summary: While the Garmin device itself is fine for GPS travel, I'm very disappointed with this for two main reasons: 1) Constant ads. It is only for one place, some hotel. But it pops up all the time, and apparently the only way to get rid of it permanently is to a) turn off the traffic (which is stupid - I...
Summary: After lengthy reviews, I purchased this particular GPS because I was very happy with my 5 year old basic Garmin and I liked the idea of a 5 inch screen with LMT features. I was immediately disappointed with this model as unlike my older GPS, this takes too long to figure out its current...
