"Useless, because every 3-4 minutes it restarts."

dennis444, CNET

  • Pros: None since it doesn't work.
  • Cons: It restarts every 3-4 minutes and the only way to get back on track is to go to recent locations. Try doing that at 70 mph on a busy highway, and you don't know where you are.

"It quit when the warranty ran out"

  • Pros: It was easy to use while it lasted, but sure as another person wrote- after the first year, it just quit.
  • Cons: I had noticed that it sometimes looked for awhile for a satellite, and at times, it thought that I was still someplace else- like at home when I was close to work and vice versa.

  • Pros: Text-to-voice spoken directions. Intuitive user interface.
  • Cons: 1st unit lasted 8 months being used twice weekly. Replacement unit lasted 8 months under identical use. Both units displayed identical "symptoms" before dying. Have also had two car adapters quit working over the same time period.

"Terrible - Don't waste your money"

tiggrntaz, CNET
6 October 2010
  • Pros: user friendly
  • Cons: Need to fix bugs in software which causes problems with getting to your location - NOT a good thing when it comes to a navigation unit! I went with Garmin because of the reputation, but this one is just awful.
