This piece of technology has been my lifesaver and it's super easy to use!

Excerpt: I would highly recommend this product. I've traveled across the country with it and was able to locate lodging, food, and places we wanted to visit without needing a computer or internet access. It's durable, affordable, and overall, effective!
Pros: affordable, accurate, helpful
Cons: takes awhile to acquire satellites when setting route
Summary: I decided to buy this product because of the review on cnet.com. The editors gave it 4 stars, and the users gave it 4 stars. That is best score they gave to any gps on the site. Of course that factors in value for the dollar ... etc. I trust reviews on cnet, they haven't adviced me wrong yet.
Summary: I would say there is no perfect GPS unit in the market, but this definitely is one of the best. If you were a nuvi owner like me, a previous owner of a nuvi 350 GPS, you will know that nuvi is very easy to operate.
Don' t over spend on a GPS. This one is all you'll need.

Summary: Two years ago, I had to purchase a GPS because of some extensive traveling I'd be doing in the Los Angeles region. Since I don't know the area and am basically directionally challenged (I get lost), a GPS was the way to go.
Summary: UPDATE: This review is now over one-year old, so a couple of my main gripes (map update policy) have been fixed. Plus, when one considers the price of the unit today (01/25/09), I consider it one of the better bangs-for-the-buck units around.
Summary: This was a great purchase. It is easy to operate and a real time and aggravation saver. I subsequently ordered a dashboard holder (weighted beanbag type) from Overstock to allow me to position it exactly where I want and reduce the chances of theft because it leaves no tell-tale suction cup mark on...
Summary: I have just moved to the States (Seattle) so I am the perfect person to really test my new Garmin unit. I registered on the Garmin site when I got my unit and downloaded (for my Mac) the latest map software which was around 2.5GB.
