Summary: I was looking forward to this purchase as an upgrade to an old Garmin 3150 which had served me faithfully for 5+ years. Ever since I received this item it very often gives awful directions. You eventually get to where you need to go, but it takes you in circles, or makes other baffling mistakes.
Summary: I purchased this unit in April 2013, before it was even shipped to the retailers. I was going to Poland and Czech Republic at the end of April and I needed a GPS with maps of Europe, since I was going to rent a car and drive on my own. This unit was (allegedly) brand new to the market.

Summary: The garmin I purchased only worked for three months when the daylight screen would no longer light. The screen can only be seen at night. Considering the price I expect the product to last for years.
Summary: Product that promised so much let down by silly issues - "design feature" or faulty item, it's difficult to know. This sat nav doesn't seem to know what time of day it is, irrespective of whether it is set on day, night or auto it seemingly randomly changes the brightness of the screen.

Summary: All received and in good order. It is a very user-friendly device once you get up and running. We had difficulty getting it out of "demo" mode, and had to go online to figure this out. It was not at all obvious (had to hold down the volume button? Who would ever get that??
Summary: Traveled for 10 days in Tuscany and this device found the most obscure roads, drove us onto dead end streets, recalculated while on freeway, stopped working when was most needed. I need to say that the maps were updated two days before arriving in Europe. Not recommended.
Summary: I will be returning this unit as it failed to work in the USA. The GPS setting could not be changed in order for you he unit to locate the Satellite.Also signal rendering the unit useless. The unit would also not turn off.
Summary: The item could not be disengaged from demo mode, either by using any of the available menu options, or by driving around (as suggested in the instructions). As a result the unit would not receive GPS signals.
Summary: This is the most frustrating product ever ordered. No instructions and I purchased it to use in the USA on holiday to avoid hire car charges. When charged, we could not get it to receive any satellite signals.
Summary: Vorab: Zunächst einmal hatte ich dieses Gerät zusammen mit der China-Karte von Garmin für genau dieses Gerät unmittelbar vor einer 5-wöchigen Dienstreise nach China erworben. Mit dieser Karte funktionierte es jedoch nicht; es startete sich in Endlosschleife neu, wenn die SD-Karte eingelegt war.
