Not as expected

Chuck, Staples
3 April 2014
  • 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. I never realized how important that feature was, especially on highways : ( Some other minor features were missing as well. Guess I will just live with it for now.

Okay... not great

Jason, Staples
2 January 2014
  • 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. Three times it took me to a place that didn't exist, even though the address was correct. Guy in Florida said that's normal down there with GPS Did it in PA also...
  • Pros: Large Screen
  • Cons: Buggy Software, Unreliable

Annoying female voice

SlyMaxButtons, Staples
11 July 2013
  • 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. They wanted me to download and update more maps for essentially the same price as the original unit. Overall though the first 3-4 years of service was exceptionally helpful, and the male voice was not disturbing.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Install
  • Cons: Wouldn't Program Out Of

Does not take you to the location

Rich, Staples

  • 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. On the 2nd address, it took me to the street the location was on and then completely stopped giving directions to the location on that street.
  • Pros: Easy To Install

Julie, Staples

  • 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.
  • Pros: Durable
  • Cons: Difficult To Install, Poorly Designed
