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

Pfred, Amazon
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.

Quit working in less than 6 months

MJ, Amazon
15 January 2013
  • Summary: This product does not work anymore. The screen is frozen with Garmin on it. I try to hit the power button but it will not go off. I have held down the power button for a "soft reset" until it goes blank and then the same screen comes up and it stays frozen. Piece of junk!

Shuts off while driving

Hot4teacher, Amazon
9 January 2013
  • Summary: I have had this gps for under 6 months and it's a waste of money. The unit shuts down while in use. I power it back on and it shuts down a minute later. This is not a charging issue as it shows it's fully charged. This even shuts down while it's plugged into the charger.

GPS worked great for 3 weeks

Justin, Amazon
18 September 2012
  • Summary: I purchased the Garmin GPS brand new near the end of August. It worked great for 3 weeks. On the 4th week, the maps no longer load on the screen, or if they do, the screen freezes up. It still says what the upcoming street is as well as your speed but no visible map. Very disappointing...
