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.
Summary: Accurate and easy to use. It also had more functions than advertised. You won't be disappointed. Update: 5.5 years later and it still works fine. Maps are outdated so I bought another Garmin as it was cheaper than updating the map on the 680.
Summary: I purchased this Garmin Nuvi 680 about a month ago. I've been using it almost everyday going to and from work. It has shown me many alternate routes at different points in my trip to and from work (80 miles roundtrip) that I didn't even know existed.
Summary: I bought the Nuvi 680 after first trying the Nuvi 660 for about a week. While I loved the 660 as well, I decided I would actually really appreciate the MSN features that the 680 has to offer. I was immediately impressed with the many features of the Nuvi 680.
Summary: It's so easy to use that even my blonde wife can use it (her statement). My wife isn't really that blonde, but she finds the 680 much easier to use than the GPS V, and far easier to see. The ability to find POI along your current route really comes in handy.
Excerpt: I love my nuvi! It is easy to use and accurate. Being a Realtor, it is nice not to have to use a map or written directions when showing property in a new or unfamiliar area. It has come in handy when I have had to find an alternative route because of traffic, weather, and road closures.
Pros: accurate, easy to use, easy to update, great gift also
Summary: My sole reason for this unit was to have good and reliable traffic report system. MSN is not the answer for two reasons - spotty reception in areas I need to travel and really poor coverage of incidents. In the many years I have been an Amazon customer, this is the first item I ever returned.
Summary: This is another upgrade for me as far a GPS's. This is replacing my 60GSx and I have owned all of the (plus) products, and have never been dissapointed with Garmin. I was on the fence between the 660 and the 680, but this price at amazon is too good to pass up and I am glad I went with the 680, the...
