NO PEDESTRIAN MODE!

Jersea, Crutchfield
11 June 2013
  • Summary: Don't buy if you plan on using overseas and walking. For some reason the people at Garmin took the pedestrian mode off the international model. Most people, like me, bought the European model so they could walk with it and find their way around foreign cities. This one doesn't have it.

Must try harder Garmin - Avoid

Amazon Customer, Amazon
31 August 2014
  • 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. Either, in the daytime going almost black or perhaps worse, dazzlingly full brightness at night. Product returned to Amazon who's service was second to none. Well done Amazon.

Dissapointed

David Flower, Amazon
24 December 2013
  • 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. We had to purchase another unit in the USA which left me disappointed with this purchase.

UTTERLY USELESS

Andrew Walker, Amazon
19 August 2013
  • 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. I even attempted to google this to resolve the issue and eventually gave up after a wasted evening, deciding instead to return it and rely on my 5 year old Tomtom.

Not a Satnav!!!

T. Charlton, Amazon
15 August 2013
  • 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. The 'receive satellite' option is off and the unit thus relies on the maps - but obviously it needs a start location to give you a route! But this always defaults to the first start position you used - in our case in the UK, not the USA!

Kartendarstellung mangelhaft

buchfreundin "lydia", Amazon
15 December 2014
  • Summary: Kartendarstellung ist teilweise korrekt, aber leider oft auch nicht. Manchmal werden die Fahrspuren angezeigt, sodass der Fahrer schon frühzeitig reagieren kann und dann fehlt es wieder. Während der Fahrt wird der Bildschirm plötzlich schwarz und schaltet sich nicht wieder ein. Nach mehrmaligen Ein/Aus kommt die Darstellung wieder, jedoch ist die Route verloren und teilweise muss ganz von vorne begonnen werden.
