Summary: IT HASN'T WORKED CORRECTLY SINCE I BOUGHT THIS FOR A GIFT FOR MY BROTHER. HE CALLED THE COMPANY AND THEY TOLD HIM TO STICK IT IN THE WINDOW. STILL SHOWS HE IS IN CHICAGO AND WE LIVE IN MICHIGAN.
Summary: I was seeking a GPS that had the electrical charger or at least had a place where one goes so I could order or purchase one for the house. This one, after plugging it in the car, drove about 30 minutes, it still would not come on. What if I was getting ready to travel and it didn't work while I'm on the road? This is why I returned it.
Summary: I bought this Garmin Nuvi 30 hoping the new GPS works as well as my old Garmin Nuvi 200. I was so wrong, the Nuvi 30 loads map so slow so that sometime I get black screen when I am existing the freeway. On the other hand, the speak street name and Lane assist with junction view is a big plus for me. Overall, I wouldn't recommend this GPS to any users unless Garmin fixed their map lag issue.
Summary: I wouldn't recommend this sat nav. It is too late when telling you to change lane and loses signal a lot. When it loses signal it just spins around off any road so you don't know which way to go and you can't stop on a dual carriageway! The screen is a bit small to refer to whilst concentrating on driving. It doesn't have lane change close ups that are pictured on the box either. I have since brought a TomTom start 25 it is 100x better. Garmin software is inferoir.
Summary: Unit is good in the UK but accuracy in Spain leaves a lot to be desired & in certain cases gives totally wrong directions i.e tries to send you wrong way up a one way street, doesn't seem to recognise the road you're on & shows a road that has been rerouted. However unit is compact, easy to use & gives clear instructions.
Summary: I purchased this Garmin, as a replacement for my 'like for like', 2007 Nuvi model. Although the basic functionality is comparable, the plastics are of much lower quality & the synthesized voice is far less authentic, and rather jerky in comparison. Overall, I was disappointed with the product, even though it does provide WE Maps and a sensible budget option.
