Summary: Broke after 7 months of use. Garmin offered no help. Every time we call the wait time is 90 to 120 minutes. Who in their right mind is going to put up with that?! It means one of two things, either they don't have enough customer service reps or their products are junk.
Summary: I bought this in January of 2010. From the start, we had problems with it sometimes taking upwards of 30 minutes to acquire a satellite. This is not an issue of the GPS being in my car with no south facing view.
Summary: This Garmin device works OK giving you direction. However, the maps are really not that accurate and I think they do this by design so that you feel the need to update the maps when they come out. Map updating used to be simple: get a CD/DVD and download via a small application that runs on your PC.
3 broken Nuvi's - Garmin product support is terrible!

Summary: I am now onto my third Nuvi. The first didn't work out of the box. The second worked for two days and then broke down. This one stopped working when I upgraded the map (as suggested by Garmin).
Old maps - be careful ! very slow at searching for places

Summary: Bought this for $149 from bestbuy during CyberMonday. Pros are a nice big screen, decent text to speech, bright screen visible in daylight. However, the maps are really old - probably from 2007. I can't find places that have opened in the last year. Garmin charges a ridiculous amount to update maps.
Summary: Everything positive said about this unit I agree with except that it finds satellites quickly. I have waited over 15 minutes for this unit to find a satellite and if you're in a hurry that's a problem. I can't recommend this unit for that important reason.
Summary: Son unos aparatos con problemas, ya habia leido algunas opiniones en europa pero pense que podian ser erradas, ya veo que no, son lentos, torpes, si tan solo lo comparamos con el garmin 250, que es superior en casi todos los aspectos, menos en el tamaño de la pantalla.
Cons: - SE PONEN TARADOS, - SE CUELGAN, - REALIZAN COSAS EXTRAÑAS COMO DESAPARECER LA LINEA GUIA Y LUEGO APARECE POR OTRO LADO., -HAY QUE OPRIMIR CON ALGO DE FUERZA LA PANTALLA SINO NO DETECTAN QUE INTENTAS NAVEGAR
