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.
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.
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.
Summary: I reduced my previous 5 star review with a 3 star because the infamous "blackout" happened to me. My gps directed me through a neighborhood I was completely unfamiliar with and when I needed the next direction it shut off.
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.
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.
Summary: I'd imagine that all the major GPS brands have issues picking up the signal in Manhattan and Brooklyn, but that just makes me even less impressed. What use is a GPS if you drive around in the city for over 30 mins and the unit STILL has not picked up a satellite signal?
Great Product but Shipped with the Wrong Power Cord!

Summary: Love this Garmin GPS but was rather frustrated to find that the power cord that it shipped with did not have the required micro usb connector. Had to go out and buy a new power cord before I could even use it.
