Summary: My nuvi 670 works beautifully in the USA but a nuvi 360 would work just as well for half the money. I purchased the 670 for a three-week vacation to England last summer. The 670 failed miserably.
Summary: Got the 670 for a trip to europe, given it had pre-installed maps of europe and North America. Didn't bother to update the european maps (saved the free update for North America) before we went on a two week trip with travels thru southern England and Normandy/Brittany/Paris in France.
Summary: I'd always be hesitant to purchase expensive electronics knowing their price will go down soon, but finally, at the last minute, I pulled the trigger and purchased this Garmin 670 that arrived a day before leaving for Europe !
Summary: Bought the Nuvi 670 for a trip to Italy. We were going to rent a GPS navigation from the car rental company but they wanted over $200 for the two weeks. Bought the Nuvi 670 for the balance of features plus US and Europe maps. Upgraded for free the Europe maps prior to leaving.
Summary: I have bought this GPS because I wanted one to use in both America and Europe. On my recent travel in Eastern Europe I was shocked to learn that despite the fact that this GPS was advertised to have maps for "Europe", in fact, it covers only a tiny fraction of the continent.
Summary: I bought this GPS for my wife's european travels. She loves it while traveling on foot, train, taxi, car. I also bought the Language Guide, which has been useful. The portability/size is perfect with an excellent display size and intuitive interface. It fits in her purse.
Summary: I recently bought this unit because it has maps for the US and Europe builtin. Since I was planning on using the unit in Europe this summer, that is a much cheaper option than having to buy the European (or US) maps separately.
Beware of cost of updates - opnly one free update offered

Summary: I purhcased the nuvi 670 from Amazon several weeks ago and I was hapy with the unit until I checked to see if there were map updates avaialable from Garmin. Garmin's website stated that map updates were available for Europe and North America, but only one update was free.
Summary: I bought this for my husband for father's day and decided to give it to him early as we were headed to Boston for Memorial Day weekend. We rented a car and were off in the city and all surrounding areas without so much as a hitch. This is a lifesaver for anyone traveling in new areas.
