Summary: I give a name to our GPS . The name Penny fit . I like the new Garmin our old one still works but got outdated after 8 yrs and lots of trips . The new one has got lots more things to use Pop ups for gas ,speed limit sighns etc. We like the ability to talk to it to give the place you want to go. Lots less time involved,then typing it in.
Summary: I make deliveries all over Idaho, Oregon Wyoming, etc. I could never depend on my cell phone navigation because Could be in some remote locations. So far this garmin Has not let me down. I recommend this unit to everyone.
Summary: After owning another brand gps( magellan) I was sorely disappointed with the garmin...No alert at turns and voice controls did not work as the ads said... First voice sounded like she was underwater.Second voice sounded much better..Not worth the money..
Summary: This unit replaced a 10-year old GPS by TomTom. The TomTom still performed admirably but was using out-of-date maps and I was contemplating replacing it with my smartfone. I saw the sale on this Garmin and ordered one after reading its specs. Now that I have had it in my hands for a few weeks, I'm further amazed on what it does. I am not a tech freak and realize that it has more features than I use but for what I need, it is perfect.
Summary: First Garmin lasted at least 10 years decided to upgrade to larger 5" screen . Especially anxious to use the audio book feature on long trips. Haven't used the new Garmin at this point except to review each feature. At this point it appears to be easier to program and use. Still haven't used on long trip.
Summary: This GPS worked just like a new one. The voice mode works well. It did take a long time to do the new map upload(18 hoours) but I was using a wi-fi system at home so that probably affected the speed. Just be patient. Getting a refurbished model was a goo way to get some etra featurezs for a good price.
