Summary: Purchased for a road trip and after using three days the device locked up and would not work at all. Returned and received refund. I would not by the refurbished Nuvi 52lm. I'll purchase a new unit. I did like all of the features. The turn lane was indicator was very helpful.
Summary: The Garmin GPS unit was just like a new one with all of the things normally included: power cable, USB cable, suction windshield mount, and map updates for life. It works great and is much better with less bulk and a larger screen than the previous one that I had (also a Garmin) which was stolen recently. I very much like the fact that one doesn't get "scolded" with a "Recalculating!" message if you deviate from the suggested route.
Summary: Was a TomTom user but thought I'd go witn Garmin this time because I heard so many good things about it. What a mistake. Just took it on a trip and it caused me much confusion. Took me in circles. Had the wrong street names. Hard to navigate the menus. Very inconvenient to turn voice off. Everytime I shut off the car and restart, it has to boot up and you have to answer questions. Seems like it does not hold a charge very long.
Summary: This GPS is slow and has very delayed directions. Ended up getting us lost. I used my cell phone gps and it zipped right through flawlessly. Returned this and will keep using my cell phone from now on.
Summary: Got this unit out of box charged it up.Every time I shut it down it goes into default on power backup. Very inconvenient to use .It needs reintroduced to current location to navigate. Poor refurb job.Too busy to send unit back for refund!!!!
Excerpt: I was in a new neighborhood. The direction was to proceed to the 55 freeway. I had no idea where the 55 freeway was from where I was. Another time I was in an unfamiliar neighborhood and the direction was proceed to Chapman Ave. I had no idea where Chapman was or how to get there. I returned my Garmin and bought a Tom tom.. Much better and clearer directions.
