Pros: I'd give it a zero if I could - piece of lifetime garbage
Cons: The Garmin (and others?) rip off with the so called lifetime maps is that does not include updates for the POIs, which are pricy. Very misleading as the POIs change faster than the roads. Also the Garmin software that I have gives the most idiotic routings imaginable.
Summary: This Garmin takes keyboard or voice input for inputting where you want to go. It has got me where I want to go, even if I take a turn wrong. I recalculates very fast to get you back to where you want to go. Voice recognition is excellent at taking input and finding your destination. Almost hands free when driving. GPS looks like it is new and comes with all the accessories.
Summary: Bought this as a xmas gift. Opened to check it out and loved the features. This one has everything I wanted and more.Especially like the Voice command and junction view.Definately an improvement with the 5 inch screen.Packaging was very good.This one had the traffic receiver built into the unit not the cord.
All in all I do like this model but it is not perfect.

Summary: The Garmin has a view screen that is good. You can see where you need to turn well in advance and that is the main reason I bought it. It has the Lane Assist that is great when trying to drive and watch it also. To me the most negative thing is that it has to be manually turned off and on every time you get in the car. They need to make it where it will automatically turn itself off after a certain period of not moving.
