Look at Other Manufacture's Units Before Purchasing this Model.

  • 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: The device failed at the critical juncture. Fourth of July weekend, we were driving from railegh airport to myrtle beach and the announcement about Arthur the hurricane. The device can't find the myrtle beach. It even didn't find the address or zip code for myrtle beach.

  • Summary: This GPS does not speak while the driving to your destination.............When at my destination, i looked at the device & touched the flag & then it told me i had arrived. Good thing this was a trial run, & I new where I was going, or I would have indeed been lost.

  • Summary: We used this on an extended road trip and had countless bad experiences from outdated maps. Poor programming. Extraneous babbling . We've had several other models and this was the worst we've ever had. Do not buy this unit.

  • Summary: Bought this for a trip to Florida. From NY it constantly told me to get off I95 and go different abstract routes. Brought it back and the exchanged one does the same thing. It is completely bizzare. Dont trust it and you have to trust your GPS. DONT BUY THIS GARMIN
