Summary: The GPS works flawlessly after I updated the firmware and installed the map and traffic updates I would recommend it to anyone who wants a good GPS at a reasonable price. Love the voice command and Bluetooth as I drive a tow truck, it really comes in handy!
Summary: We ordered this just a few days before Christmas and expected it to arrive after...well, it made it here by Christmas eve. It works great--a nice upgrade from our much older model. We're really fond of the slightly bigger screen, Bluetooth capabilities, and lifetime maps. It was the best deal around for this model.
Excerpt: Worked better than I expected. Clear and precise directions. Easy to set up. Free map upgrades are a real plus. Worked well with our old mount. Garmin support is terrific, they really care and want to help. Only problem was that there was no manual in the box. Had to download it and print it out. We do some traveling and the GPS keeps us on tract. We made a wrong turn in a busy area and the device pu us back on the correct route. We call it Chloi after the gal on 24.
Summary: While I'm impressed with the Motion-X GPS on my iPhone, it does not work (1) when I loose the carrier's signal in the middle of nowhere, (2) on a cruise ship and (3) in an airplane. And I want or need to use my GPS in all three situations! There are many new upgrades since I owned my last Garmin several years ago (like voice recognition, etc.) A little bigger 5.0" screen is also nice!
