Summary: Bought expecting the same overall quality on the Garmins but the brand seems to have lost it's path. With smartphones nowadays just lacking the ability to do my laundry, this unit is very small and has no internal capacity. You'll need to buy an microsd and a cover to protect it if you want to. The battery lasts about 1 hour or so (not nice) and the units quite often stops responding.
Summary: For the amount of money I spent on this I'm a little disappointed with it's performance. I really do like the size and form factor which apparently came at a compromise to function. The GPS takes a long time to pick up the satellites and start giving directions. I've also found that on local routes (where I'm familiar with the area) that this GPS no matter what route setting you choose does not always pick the best way to take.
Summary: The GPS is only lead you to a place that is really close to ur destination then says approaching your destination and done. You have to find the place by yourself. And some times it shows no signal.i have to restart it order to get it back to work. But the outfit is really cool ..
Summary: Not as accurate as my old Garmin. 1st and only use so far was in San Diego, purchased city map, not much help. Will keep learning. Part of problem could be operator. Will update review with more use. Basic navigation lags 2 or 3 seconds, too late sometimes to make turn. Direction of turn and lanes available feature was accurate. This unit gets very hot when left on.
ID and Dsiplay is impeccable~! Search engine still not desirable.

Summary: The device is stupid and slow when i start using it. After updating firmware, it responses fast and locates the position precisely. Display looks perfect~!~ Wideview with strong output lumiance. However, the seaching engine for point of interest is slow comparing to Mallegant. The worst is that it can't search by ZIP code.
Summary: I have been a long time customer of Garmin products. The problem is this unit will sometimes freeze up and you cannot hard reset it to make it reboot. This leads time excessive times when trying to get the unit to turn back on. I have had it take as long as overnight to get the unit back to working conditions.
