Summary: I had the older (2007) version of this unit and the guide voices were much better. All of the speaking voices on this unit are annoying. They removed the British accent voice which was our favorite. Very pleasing. We called her "Olive." The lane assist feature ... eh ...

It's OK if You already bought it - it will take You to places.
