Summary: I live on one of several islands outside of Savannah, Ga proper. After I finally found someone to register and download maps I put in the address of the CPA I had an appointment with. No such map existed. I called the 800 help line and she said she also had no maps for this area. So I'm afraid I have it boxed up to return to the store. Since I'm not really traveling anywhere just needed to find addresses in this area it really isn't of much use to me. Sorry.
Summary: Listening to the unit as you drive you can get confused to the directions. It says ,turn left on right 100. It reads rt as right instead of route. Also things like saint Louis it says street Louis. I guess it reads st as street. Also the street names especially 2 name streets the name pronounciations are confusing.
Summary: I'm uncomfortable with the way addresses are input. Starts with the house number, then the street, then the state. My old Nuvi started with the state, the city, the street and house number. It was simpler. Also, I miss having an owner's manual in the box. A pleasant surprise was Garmin offers a dashboard mount that eliminates the suction cup, which failed on my old unit with some degree of frequency. It has found those places I've input into it.
For the price paid, it is OK, but for more features you must upgrade to the current model

Summary: This was an end of model purchase. Garmin does not make this model anymore. It is OK and has many enhancements from previous interfaces, but it does not support live services (if you are looking for that), or streaming from your smartphone.
Summary: The GPS worked OK. Often times the car was past the street before the gps recognized the side street. POI's left a bit to be desired. Unit seemed to work OK otherwise. My main complaint: I worked with the support staff over the phone for 2hrs trying to register this device less success. Plugins, USB drivers all downloaded OK; the computer recognized the device, but the communication plugin would not communicate with the GPS device.
