4 June 2013
Summary: - Why you bought it? I bought it for my friend. It has most of the required Navigation system features. - What you like most about it? It's reasonable price. - What you dislike about it? It doesn't have my region Maps, It doesn't work smoothly/fastly especially when loading the Maps. - Whether or not you would buy the product again? I'll try to buy butter than this.

Summary: This unit didn't come with any maps already programmed into it. We had to spend another $90 for maps that should of been already programmed into the unit. I have a couple myself and they both came with maps already programmed into them. The Garmin website is also kind of difficult to navigate around in, and the maps took a little over 10 hours to download with high speed internet, but after all said and done, it's a great product and works pretty well.
Pros: I love the over all look and feel of the unit. The voice command work very well if you/it uses easy to understand and pronounce names.
Cons: If you live in an area of the country that has lots of Spanish names for streets and businesses/schools you'll have problem with the unit understanding you. (It even has a problem under Verizon and McDonald's))
Pros: Does well as GPS, although I find a few errors in directions. In one case in Sacramento, they teel you to turn left onto a freeway, but the only accesss to that freeway is a right turn.
Cons: They say it has bluetooth. It does, but for only a few select phones. It does not work with my HTC Inspire or many other current cell phones. I had to go buy a Jabra, which works quite well. Ihave been very disappointed with Garmin's claims of having Blue
Summary: For the money I personally did not see that many features that were worth the additional money. Phone via bluetooth, the microphone is not strong enough. The person I called could barely hear me. They advertise this device was suppose to show you images of intersections. I have driven into Minneapolis, Minnesota and never did see any intersection pictures popup. I am glad I bought it at a reduced price refurbished model.
