Summary: Easy to get loaded and running. At login, 1 hour was projected download time to update, but only took 1/2 hour. School zone audible alert saved me last week; I instinctively hit the brakes even before I saw the sign and slowed down just as a CHP car rounded the corner in front of me.
Summary: This Garmin is very fast, it had bad reviews because people didn't update it takes about 3-5 hours at first, this does not work correctly out of the box it MUST be hooked up to computer first this is in the instructions
Pros: fast map download easy to operate good price
Summary: The new Garmins are loaded with some great features that work very well. However, -- what does not work very well is the change to how the driving directions are spoken. The older models of the Nuvi had voices that told you the name of the street to start out on - the name of the street to turn on -...
Pros: weather traffic school zone notifications
Cons: very vague in spoken directions you have to look at the unit for details
Summary: We finally replaced our 10 year old Magellan for a newer Garmin. And we are taking it back. It is the only GPS that tells you where to turn after you passed the turn, but it will re-direct you around the block a lot of times searching...
Pros: nice screen easy set up easwy to return at costco
Cons: no alert before you arrive at a turn. it might tell you the correct turn it might show you how to find the road it might show you your correct position
