Not Satisfactory

TLG, Amazon
22 February 2015
  • Summary: The unit is not as great as I expected. It can barely maintain a satellite connection from the time I leave my parking spot to the end of the street. I am highly dissatisfied.

Bogus directions.

James Tuma, Staples
31 July 2014
  • 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.

not what I need

wormies, Staples
19 May 2014
  • Excerpt: I need a GPS unit that you can program more than one stop at a time. I need it to do multiple locations for a delivery route and this one doesn't do that.

Maps were wrong, wrong, and wrong.

Dionne U Blanchard, Amazon
27 March 2014
  • Summary: Garmin seemed to work fine. Registered, bought extended warranty, bought charger bundle, bought portable friction mount... Downloaded the most up to date maps and found out the road I live on is mis-numbered. The route I take straight to work was not the maps choice by miles.

Updates not possible. Registration not possible.

14 March 2014
  • Summary: The only way the product can be registered or updated is via the Garmin Express software, yet when launching the software it finds the device and reports that it is not compatible with the device.

Warning: Garmin gouges on future maps

J. Boucher, Amazon
16 February 2014
  • Summary: if you buy the wrong map set, or decide you want to add a map in future (in my case I wanted Canada), you have to pay almost the full cost of the unit, just for a ONE TIME map. For example, I bought the Lifetime Maps - US version by accident. I assumed I could just download Canada.

Down the garden path.

Russell Barker, Amazon
29 December 2013
  • Summary: Having bought this from Halfords yesterday I was pleased on the way home that, having taken it out of the box it was almost fully charged. As I was the passenger I programmed it to take us home. Everything seemed to be fine...

Customer Service is Not there to Help in Failures

T. E. Walker, Amazon
9 October 2013
  • Summary: Two months in and dead. Unit will not boot. Customer service is not helpful. They send you emails saying try this. When you respond with a the result they send you another email saying then try this instead. I have done that three times now. Each with a day lag in between.

joejoe, Amazon
6 July 2013
  • Summary: Worst product ever. Stopped working after 6 months and calling Garmin was a waste of time. The company couldn't have cared less. NEVER AGAIN
