Summary: This unit worked great for several years. Then one day, I couldn't turn it off and it seemed to be frozen. The temperature rose dangerously high to the point where it was too hot to touch. I let it burn itself down to zero charge, plugged it back into my car's USB port, and tried to charge it back up. I couldn't turn it on and couldn't figure out if it was fully charged.

Summary: The navigation is much better than when I use my iPhone. For instance, the Garmin tells you when it's half a mile to your next turn. It gives you a reminder about fifty yards before the turn, then tells you when to turn. The iPhone navigation leaves out the middle step; I have overshot a few turns because I needed that little warning. The way you have to enter addresses is a little tedious, but all the other features make up for that.
Summary: This device doesn't allow me to enter a street name that is valid. It isn't a new street by any means. The street is a major road with businesses. Also, this device doesn't do a good job of finding many places I've searched for. Sometimes it doesn't find any of the stores and sometimes it finds only some of the chain stores. It brings up some stores that have been closed for years. I've resorted to using OnStar. Sometimes I use the map for the speed limit information.
Summary: Having owned several Garmins previously, I wanted to purchase a really nice unit for my girlfriend. I did a bunch of research and settled on this one because of the multi-touch capacitive screen. When it works, its a nice unit....when it works. Pro's: -Bright screen -Finally some options for arranging the icons on the map!
Summary: The battery will not survive being unplugged at all. And it will not charge from the car charger. You have to charge it on a wall charger at home, and them immediately plug it into your cigarette lighter. So, the logistics of keeping the battery going have basically offset any convenience of having it. Waste of my money.
Summary: In the end I sent this unit back...Found the navigation just kept taking long routes...The unit itself was very nice...Got very hot when updating..I will keep my tomtom and garmin 50lm...Traffic on 3760 was not so great...
