  • Summary: Delivered fast and works great. Easy to use and display is great. However, I cannot get it to connect to my new computer with windows 7 (got just before windows 8 came out). Was able to get it connected to my XP machine to update the maps.

  • Summary: Easy to transfer ALL info from the old one using the Garmin App. I enjoy the larger screen and easier to read fonts.

  • Summary: We bought this to replace a prior 3-year old Garmin, that started having trouble acquiring satellites. This one gets satellites fast. We like the split display when we are approaching a major highway exit, and it even shows what the exit sign looks like. On the negative side: the instruction booklet is small and has no words-- it's all pictures, and was not at all clear. At a minimum, a "getting started" in English would have been useful.

  • Summary: I love this product with a few exceptions. I notice there's glitches on the devise. For example, I tested it by going to walmart, the direction to there was perfect, but on the way back, there was a section of the main road wasn't even there and it got me turning off the main road. Again, going to walmart was perfect but come back wasn't correct. I was on the main road there and back. Another glitch, when I'm at home, the car icon doesn't show the correcti destination.

  • Summary: Does the job. The specs on this one did not say only the lower 48 states. It did not even say U.S only. Only cuz I thot it would include Canada. But for most people who dot drive out of america, this is a fine product.

  • Summary: A solid entry level GPS with good map coverage. Gets you from here to there reliably. As others have indicated there are a few quirks with the Garmins though. Most notably, out of the box is thinks you are in Illinois so you have to go modify the state. Searching by zip code just says 'result not found' because the zip you enter isn't in Illinois. IMHO not knowing what state a zipcode is in is a major interface flaw, and Garmin needs to fix this.

  • Summary: I bought this unit online on Thanksgiving for $69 to replace my Tom Tom. My old unit has more options in the settings but this does come with lifetime maps in the lower 49 states only. You can purchase additional maps from other countries. The software to download from their website to update your unit is easy to use but make sure the usb cable is used for data transfer and not just charging. This has a nice large display and is simple to use.
