Summary: Bought in 2007, have been quite well except that sometimes it told me where to turn kinda last minute... but this is not too much a problem. Wouldn't complain at all... until recently touch screen just stopped working all of a sudden. Tried reset, reboot. Wouldn't work.
Summary: My wife and I bought the device about 6 months ago and worked perfectly the first two months. We used it maybe 12 times before we started to experience problems with the GPS device. The satellite signal does not reach the device even though we move the antenna.
Summary: Received Garmin and made an attempt to register on line. Was told the software was not up to date. Kind lady at customer service helped me register. She also informed me to call tech service to get help with software update and that I was eligible for a free map upgrade.
Summary: This is a nice unit. We epecially like the audio aspect so that we don't have to constantly watch the screen. Positives are the size, the ability to zoom in and out, the brightness of the screen, the simple controls and the mounting system.
Summary: I read a lot of the reviews before buying and found them helpful. Most of the pros and cons are already stated but a few things that I would've liked to know ahead of time are: Pros - Bought this for $200 new on Amazon and to get any other Garmin that has Text to Speech and the other features that...
Summary: I live in the suburbs outside of Washington DC. THis is the only navigation systems I have owned and used so I cannot compare it to others. The Garmin has worked very well. I don't know if it always takes the fastest route, but they have all gotten us there without hassle.
Summary: i drive for Eco Cycle in Boulder CO. most of the places we go are already known. some arent. there is always something new in the world of recycling and always a new place to go get the stuff. there was one time i was so lost that i had to call the customer to come and find "me".
Summary: I normally don't write reviews, although in this case, it's worth my time. I will caveat this review by stating up front that this is my first GPS unit and I have nothing else to compare it to. Well, we've had this Garmin Model for about 8 months and LOVE it.
Summary: I strongly recommend this product for people with the same requirements as me: just a navigation unit. I specifically did not care for the hands-free option or radio transmitter option - just a good navigation unit. Hands-free is great, but I don't want to have this in the car all the time.
