GarminExpressInstaller.exe acts like a virus, not an updater.

gk, Amazon

  • Summary: The hardware is pretty good, but the software ... Let's just say (very kindly) that the promise of "Lifetime Updates" is misleading, and, perhaps, dangerous. I hadn't run the updater for awhile, until, while driving, I became aware that the map was seriously out of date about highway changes.

SUCH a disappointment

  • Summary: I bought this trusting the good reviews. I live in an area undergoing major road construction on all the highways, and I wanted the GPS to help me route around it when I run errands and go to appointments.

Poor

Ronald, Amazon

  • 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

  • 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.

Like all GPS the directions it gives are accurate - keeping in mind that it is a brainless machine

  • Summary: The directions are fine, however this unit has a prominent Achilles heel. The audio instructions are given though a tiny speaker in the unit does not provide the clarity I am used to with other more expensive Garmins I have worked with.
