Look at Other Manufacture's Units Before Purchasing this Model.
12 March 2015
Summary: Garmin has produced a poor substitute compared to the earlier GPS models they produced. They cheapened the unit by using plain glass instead of non-glare glass as used before. Sunlight (on the dash of my car), makes it is almost impossible to see the images on the screen.
Summary: I had a Garmin that I purchased in 2007 that finally started acting crazy. I used it coming cross country in 2011 and had to duck tape it to the stand because of a crack in the attachment area. I wanted another Garmin and this one was what I purchased and I am very satisfied.
Summary: This is 2nd NUVI we bought (previous one was a few years older). Much improved - like the display. No issues with it. It does not bother us and tell us it is recalculating. Like the display and graphics. Great product
Summary: simple gps. you must pay for updates but price is reasonable. don't really need them though. speed trap and camera trap warnings, just wish it came with a wall charger. leaving it in the car to charge is a invitation to theft. If you have a short trip, it may not completly charge.
