It's good...but

chrissac, Amazon
2 January 2014
  • Summary: I got this from Amazon to replace a TomTom that was getting too outdated map-wise. I liked the design, clarity, etc. but the one thing it doesn't do that my old one did is tell me how far I have to go. It shows the mileage to the next turn and the time I should arrive but there is nowhere I can find the total distance left to go. I've tried to find it and maybe it's me, but I can't seem to get that.

  • Summary: This unit works ok but some times it takes you out of your way.One time it took me in a complete circle and I had to reprogram it to get where I was going

Tom Tom is easier to use

J. Herling, Amazon
15 December 2013
  • Summary: I previously had a Tom Tom, but I hated that it gave me distances in metrics, sometimes. Approaching a turn, it said 800 meters, etc.. Hated that! So that's why I went with Garvin this time. But now, I'm missing some of the other features I had on the Tom Tom. For example, I could give my destination, and then get a quick visual overview of the route I'd be taking. With the Garvin, I just have to wait and see what roads it plans on taking me.

Not Senior Friendly

Diane Blume, Amazon
9 May 2013
  • Summary: Instructions in package were for mounting the unit, only. Buttons are too small. I have been searching on my unit for Eastport Rd located in Alpine, TN. The unit says the road doesn't exist. I went on Map Quest to see if there was a different names for Eastport like maybe a rural route. None could be found. MapQuest did have that particular road and I downloaded to my GPS unit. It didn't download. I then tried to use the tech support provided by Garmin.

Decent

jacob daniel noble, Amazon
3 April 2013
  • Summary: It was decent. Doesn't necessarily take you on the shortest path though, I've tried it a few times in my own city and it's taken me all the way around the block to go somewhere that only was a left turn away. But it's worth the price. And it will get you where you need to go in the end- so again, WORTH THE PRICE!

Not very Impressive

Ferret_Keeper, Amazon
21 January 2013
  • Summary: Unit arrived before Christmas, so OK for delivery I tested it for going to places I knew in my county. The routes it calculates are not always best. Sometimes routes calculated for different places use different routes, but pass through the same intersection. The route to from home to my office goes one way that is two miles longer, but going home from the office, it uses the shorter route (One-way streets are not involved).

Good unit for the price.

G. Hanna "camper nut", Amazon
9 January 2013
  • Summary: Bought this as a gift for the Grandson. For what we paid for and wanted, this fit the bill. Has much less features that our full blown Garmin that I have, but for navigation, it works great.
