Summary: I bought this unit because I am a local driver in cincinnati. There are many truck restrictions and I liked the traffic alerts. ...BUT I hate this thing. I have used it in my car and had no problems other than it sometimes takes a longer route around. However in a big truck its useless.
Summary: I got this gps because I wanted it for trucking and general navigation. I didn't feel I needed all the whistles and bells that come with the more expensive 560 lmt. Another reason I purchased this device was because it had the versatility for me to add lake maps, as I thought it would be nice to use...
Summary: I HATE this GPS! My first complaint is about the manual that comes with it. It's just a quick start guide & doesn't tell you much about the features. I tried to download a complete manual from their website & that one wasn't much better. Another thing is that you can not select an alternate route.
Summary: I am a truck driving, traveling all over the United States. Having the right GPS is essential to keep me on routes that are only for large trucks. I was using a regular Garmin and it just was not doing the trick, had to compensate using an app on my iphone. With this new Garmin, it does it all.
Summary: Too many screens to change to get info that should be on the main screen...this thing cannot even tell you what town you are in! omg! it gives only the lattitude and longitude! Try telling that to a tow truck driver!
Summary: I think I received a refurbished one but I ordered a brand new one. It is very slow, the calibration is way off, it's supposed to be updated to the up to date format and it wasn't. I have three garmins besides this one and this is the worst one.
dealing with it as is. OTR trucker....been a cpl weeks. We well see how long it takes before the lack of updates become a proble

Summary: So glad you asked. I am satisfied with the new garmin yet completely unsatisfied with the available updates. On more the four occasions I have allocated several hours attempting to download and install the available updates. Each session ends in failure.
Summary: this thing comes withvery out dated maps, so you go through trouble of getting it updated (this took over 2 hours) a then you have a freshly updated peice that still has old maps. Why is it that google maps knows about all of the changes in our roads but garmin doesnt.
One decent bump in the road and the product stopped working

Summary: I installed the GPS in my RV and used it for 2 weks. I was pleased with the ease of operation, etc. BUT, hit one decent bump in the road and received this screen message: Lost Satellite Reception. Any GPS for use in an RV or truck can't be that sensitive to minor shock.
