Summary: Screen is too dark and difficult to read on sunny days. Maps are not up to date. Not sure when they were installed, but clearly the unit does not have latest points of interest in its inventory.
Summary: Thought i would be able to punch in a city and it would take best route. It requires an address I don't always have. I have put in coordinates and it said no match. I know it should be there because I was using a book to tell me where the place was.
Excerpt: This Garmin is directionally challenged. I don't know why, but this one has a hard time figuring out which road I am on; it frequently thinks I'm driving on a road parallel to the one where I am actually located, and it will take it several blocks or a few turns to figure out that I am not where it...
Summary: I never had a GPS before. So what I didn't like about this Garmin it didn't have instructions on how to use the Garmin. I had to look on one of their web sites to even get the instructions. The my download didn't even complete so I had no instructions for the Garmin.
Excerpt: This was a replacement for another Garmin that just never located satellites anymore. It was about the same price but was missing features. There is no current time displayed, and most important it does not show if there were traffic delays ahead.
Excerpt: Purchased for lifetime map updates... went to Florida and our old one only had maps to 2011, and I didn't want to get lost.Pro's: Similar to our old Garmin, like the fact it does always say "recalculating" when you miss a turn... that gets annoying on my old one.Cons: Some directions were wrong.
Excerpt: I went for an upgrade from the Garmin Nuvi 1300 which had inexplicably gone haywire after about 4-5 years. It was continuously cutting out on me during routes and leaving me stranded during freeway interchanges.
Excerpt: I returned this product because it does not give the proper directions. I set this unit to 2 different locations. On the first location I went to it took me to a complete different street which was about a block away from the address I had entered in it.
Excerpt: We already have 2 Tom Tom's and was trying to buy another for my daughter for graduation but Staples only had Garmin in stock they no longer carry Tom Tom which was very disapointing. But I figured I get it since I needed it for her right away.
