Pros: it is intuitive, not many steps to get to what you need, easy blue tooth phone set up, it finds where you want to go by place, by name or address more accurately and easier than the $3000 gps junk that came in my 2010 honda ridgeline truck.
Cons: battery life is short. dont lose the power cable and dont

Summary: This is our first GPS and we love it! It's very user-friendly. Only had to glance at the directions once or twice- could figure it all out on the screen! I spent more than an hour shopping on Amazon for a gps, comparing reviews, etc, and finally settled for this. Boy am I glad I did! There are more expensive models, but I can't see them being any better than this! No need to compare anymore- just get this one. I'm positive you'll be happy with it.
Summary: My wife and I were both due for map updates on two older units. Picked up two of these for $89 each. Map updates would have been $79 each, so the extra $10 was a no-brainer. Garmin is obviously in the software business. Just finished installing the free map updates on both units, and we are ready to go.
Summary: I only used it once so far on a trip from NJ to VT. It worked well. The speed limit display was helpful when going through small towns. Alerted me well in advance of turns. I would recommend it so someone else. The GPS unit is the first I have used.
