Good product with a good price compared to others in the market
6 March 2013
Summary: I bought this product because i moved to a new city and i always feel safer when it is with me I tried to find a cheap but relaiable product and the cheapest one i found in Best Buy was double the price. Then i found this one which i consider have a good price compared to its features. Now after using it for over a month, i feel it was a very good deal.
Summary: I do not like that this product does not come with lifetime map updates. Somewhat difficult to set up. Mine came with no instruction manual. I don't know if this is common or not but I had to look it up online in order to figure out how to program.
Summary: Got this to upgrade my older Garmin 350. Pros: I like how fast it can acquire satellites, without a flip-out patch antenna as in 350. The screen size is very adequate for our use, not too small and not too big. The sound volume and quality is very good even with windows down. I havent tried map but knowing I have it gives me a feeling that I will use it for at least 3-4 years.
Pros: acquires satellites quick screen size is very adaquate decent sound quality includes lifetime map
Cons: touch screen not as responsive as I hoped user interface can be improved a bit.
Pros: It's okay. but think the nuvi 205 might've been better. As an early post stated, it sometimes does some glitch crazy rerouting.. i've only used it once so far so hard to say if it's really great but so far it's gotten me from point A to B.
Cons: No password lock function. I bought this because some F**KER broke my car window and broke my glove compartment and stole my nuvi 205.. That one had a password lock on it so the guy pretty much stole a brick.. this one doesn't seem to have an option to lock it so if this on gets stolen, i hope not, the thief will be able to make use of it.. That's the only con i really have so far.
Pros: Some nice bonus features found on higher price units like lane assist and speed notification. Fast satelite acquisition.
Cons: It's gotten off track on serveral trips while driving and has done some crazy re-routing until it gets a lock on the correct location again. I ran it next to my older Garmin 5XX GPS, which doesn't do this. Hopefully it will be fixed in a firmware upgrade (currently has the latest firmware). I suspect it has something to do with the stability of the fast acquistion. It also seemed to do it less when it had a very clear path to the sky even though when I sit it on the c...
Summary: Just used this GPS for a trip from NY to Maryland and back. Its an easy to use basic GPS that gets you where you have to go without the hefty price tag. Large easy to read screen. Long cord for charging.Loud and clear turn by turn directions. Inexpensive. The only annoying features are the speed zone camera that beeps repeatedly when it detects a highway camera and when you have to stop the car and start again and choose recent places, it will ask to set the most recent...
Summary: Update I finally got to use this GPS on a long holiday trip. This model worked pretty good. It starts up and acquires Sattelite lock pretty fast. Route calculation and navigation is awesome. One major improvement over my previous Garmin was much faster route recalculation if you miss a turn .It doesn't even show the rerouting message and most of the times reroutes before you know it.
