Poor

Ronald, Amazon
24 August 2014
  • Summary: The very first day I used this GPS within 2 minutes it lead me to a dead end road and told me to continue for 3 miles. I was often directed to go miles just to make a U-turn when there were options right in front of me. About 3 weeks later it went blank and I never tried to use it again.

  • Summary: I took a risk buying refurbished. So, on day two when it started saying I was driving 172 miles and giving me directions at that speed....I guess I can't be too disappointed.

  • Summary: I was very upset. I bought a reverbished one. There are scratches on the front and on the back. When I picked it up even the girl that walmart said she could not believe how scratched up it was. Of course it was a present.

Just received this and it doesn't work

Debi Saner, Amazon
1 February 2014
  • Summary: Their website is awful. Hard to use. How can they send a device out that may already need a fix? I can't get past the Garmin logo, which I will now always connect with bad products. I gave it a two on the chance they will fix this easily. I anticipate returning this via Amazon in 3 days.

YOU NEED TO BUY A MINI USB CORD SO YOU CAN CONNECT TO YOUR COMPUTER

Laura Duffy, Amazon
6 September 2013
  • Summary: Extremely frustrating. The instructions that come with this are similar to the IKEA instructions. Are we getting too stupid to understand words these days? I've been going in circles on the website trying to figure stuff out, and I'm pretty computer literate.

Not Great - Loses satelite connection too often
