Summary: Just kidding about the blender! First venture into a full feature GPS. Have been quite happy with other Garmin electronics (depth/fish finders; handheld GPS etc.) in the past plus -this was on sale when I ordered it.
Summary: I've not used it a lot since purchase. I'm waiting for warmer weather for the family trips. I've been very pleased with the performance so far. My sister has one and on the way to a medical appointment in a new location, it worked perfectly.
Summary: It is very slow it tells you when to turn after the street and loses signal all the time. We used it in Minneapolis ,Dallas and San Antonio wish I had not trown away the packaging or I would have returned it. My cheaper tom tom is much better.
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 I like the new Garmin our old one still works but got outdated after 8 yrs and lots of trips .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.
Summary: Three main issues, as others have reported. 1) Voice search does not function.. Accepts menu commands, then at the address entry it fails. Comically. More than one hundred attempts, tried to "train it", etc. Fail. 2) Basic address search?
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 The TomTom still performed admirably but was using out-of-date maps and I was contemplating replacing it with my smartfone.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.
