Meh. It'll do.

C. Gerhardt "Gsetter Girl", Amazon

  • Summary: Not quite as reliable as my previous Garmin - It apparently didn't even know there was a Detroit in Michigan - but this one had a do-able price tag and I needed a replacement. It has managed to get me to all my dog sitting jobs hassle-free, and despite not knowing that Detroit, Mi, was a place, got...

  • 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 ...

Somewhat frustrating and no manual included

S.J., Amazon

  • Summary: Works pretty well, but is a bit confusing as far as programming. Not straightforward. It does this frustrating thing where it says "proceed to highlighted area" when you first begin to navigate. It doesn't, however, tell you how to GET to the highlighted area and it isn't always clear on the map.

  • Summary: My wife almost never gets lost. Some say it's because she has extra iron or something in the middle of her forehead. I guess that when this particular trait was being handed out I must have been playing a Star Trek game. Then along comes GPS!

  • Summary: For the most part, it functions as a GPS Nav should. However sometimes it does not take the best route. Also there have been a couple instances where my destination for example has been on the left but it says it's on the right.

basic but functional

MrBunnyChow, Halfords

  • Excerpt: there is no doubting that this item is a fantastic price, it is low on features and a little small but it gets the job done and thus far hasn't gotten me lost although it does occasionally seem to get itself confused.
