nuvi 680 great, mapping software is not

Ken, Amazon
10 July 2008
  • Summary: I bought a Garmin Nuvi 680 quite a while ago. Prices have plummeted since then, and probably will continue. This is a great device, and has helped me many times. We even took it on a trip to Baltimore and Philly (we're in SoCal), and it is totally portable when you buy a beanbag (friction) mount.

  • Summary: My final recommendation is to buy this unit if you are looking for a good GPS, very good unit for the money that you will pay.
  • Pros: easy to use, valuable and accurate information, very easy to read, display is clear, colorful
  • Cons: If you miss your road or turnoff, the "re-calculating" voice can be annoying!!

Great Produce!

Earthling, Amazon

  • Summary: I needed a GPS unit for my car but got really confused with all the options out there. I read some comparison reviews and settled on Garmin. I chose the Nuvi 680 cause of the bluetooth, MP3 player and screen size. I really do love this GPS unit.

  • Summary: Ordered a Magellen and was totally disapointed. It would not work off of adaptors that came with it. Had to keep recharging the battery to use it. Battery got low, it would not work until it was charged back up.
