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! I had to take a trip to another state and attend some meetings there. I had a panic attack at the mere thought of trying to find my way to specific addresses in a strange city.

Summary: For the most part, it functions as a GPS Nav should. However sometimes it does not take the best route.

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.
Excerpt: 1) Graphics not as good as Main Competitor's 2) Recalculating the route after taking the wrong route takes too long. 3) 3D way of displaying the route far from accurate. 4) UPDATED maps still not showing some obvious places or postcodes. It's OK if You already bought it - it will take You to places.
Summary: Was not as up to date as I had hoped, and the screen smaller than I was used to, but about what was expected. It was,after all, purchased just to tide us over to a new car purchase next year. So not overly happy, but satisfied.
Summary: I thought this new nuvi would be much faster than the older model it replaced. Not nearly as fast as I anticapted. Maybe I should have looked harder to assure that I was gettng the newest model.
Summary: Description says it comes with a USB cable to download updates and maps from computer. Did not come with the cable-the reason I bought it was to specifically download Panama maps. Disappointed.
