Summary: I originally purchased the Garmin Nuvi because I observed in a friend's vehicle how efficient it was. I don't travel too often where I would need the GPS at my side always, but when I do travel I often do it alone.
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 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 was expecting it to be a little bigger but the Quality and ease to use as well as to read is astounding. I haven't went on line yet but the unit is wonderful to use and so easy even I can use it. My last GPS was very complicated and hard to use.
Summary: I've only used this twice, but like it already. The maps are easy to read, and the text to voice works nicely. We're about to take several trips, and will rely on it more then. You have a choice of voice inflections, and we chose an Aussie sounding female, which is cool.
Summary: For the most part, we are satisfied with this unit. This is the first GPS system we have purchased. We used it recently to travel across the United States. No matter where we traveled from a large city to a small town in the middle of nowhere, the GPS unit was able to find where we were and give us...
Summary: The Garmin is incredibly easy to use right out of the box, and very handy for finding your way around. The only negative: sometimes the device has trouble locating the satellite, so you have to wait (or drive around the old-fashioned way).
Summary: Overstock's price was actually better than the company's website. Quality of product is excellent and Overstock was informative and prompt in its delivery. Put it to use two days later and had no trouble finding the out of town family reunion site!
Summary: Let me preface this by saying I'm not new to GPS, and have used an old reliable Garmin GPS-V on long road trips for several years with excellent results. Being "early" technology from Garmin, my good 'ol GPS-V suffered from some drawbacks such as slow RS-232 data transfer (no USB), small monochrome...
Summary: First of all I'd like to start this review by saying that I got this as a replacement for my TomTom One XL. I was very happy with my TomTom, the reason I needed the Nuvi was for the Mount with integrated cables and the mount design itself.
