Average Garmin

Kevin F., Newegg
20 December 2010
  • Pros: Being able to dock it and not ALSO plug in the connector is nice. Would have been two stars but that connector in dock thing helps a lot.
  • Cons: Free Traffic is limited somehow. Not North America. The last one I had worked in Seattle, WA but not in Vancouver, BC. This one workes in Vancouver, BC, Canada but nothing at all in Seattle, WA. Garmin wants $60 for the "North America" Traffic. No lifetime map updates either. Another $90 if you p...

  • Summary: Great for the price! Not recommended if this it is not on sale, though!
  • Pros: - Lane Assist - Voice over FM - MP3 Playback - Bluetooth - Memory card slot - Good price from NewEgg
  • Cons: - Reboots Randomly - Random loss of voice over FM - Points of interest not well updated (but this is the case with other Garmins as well) - Mic is not that good so don't bank on making calls over the bluetooth

  • Conclusion: 1st thing I did was get update from Garmin.They still have a lot of bad information.Touchscreen is very touchy.Several times it types in letter next to the one I want.Bluetooth is very good.On my old Garmin people often complained too much feedback or noise.I like the screen size.

Will get you where your going

Tina S., Newegg
22 March 2010
  • Summary: If I had a choice I would not buy this model again, however I would stick with garmin.
  • Pros: Will get you to where your going one way or another, mp3 player, bluetooth. Nice to use as a speedometer, Nice mount. Speaking street names is nice makes it easier to navigate.
  • Cons: Some roads do not appear unless you turn onto them (my map detail is on high), fm transmitter a bit weak, 3d buildings are extremely rare 99% of the time, I have yet to see one. Takes you down extremely odd roads I would not want to go down if I was in an unknown area. Takes you down roads that h...

Not bad, but not great

Mike N., Newegg
6 February 2010
  • Summary: Basically, if you're in an unfamiliar place, the unit is a huge help. The turns are called out well in advance, and street names are spoken clearly (though sometimes pronounced in a humorous way).
  • Pros: Lane assist (when it appears), FM Transmitter, Bluetooth, Maps are gorgeous and easy to read.
  • Cons: Searches slow to come up, keyboard lags (maybe software issue? Have just contacted Garmin support), Routes not always the best or logical, and routes cannot as be customized easily.

Love it and Hate it

  • Summary: This is my second Garmin GPS navigator. Sad to say it still has some of the same annoying traits as the first one that I bought 5 years ago. We recently took a road trip from Minneapolis to Phoenix and in general it works pretty well.

Works ok

Alexandre F., Newegg
11 January 2010
  • Summary: Overall, it was a good purchase for the price.
  • Pros: Nice interface, easy to use and to look for addresses.
  • Cons: Had trouble when trying to link with my iphone (you need to change the GPS name). Buttons don't work very well. Sometimes it does weird calculations and shows traffic that does not exist.

Garmin software crash

James R., Newegg
6 January 2010
  • Summary: Lost one star for the freezing and one for the maps.
  • Pros: Garmin provided the most recent maps upon request and proof of purchase in the past 30 days. Good lane assist and traffic avoidance.
  • Cons: When the unit is left on over night or several hours in a parking lot it will be frozen on the screen it was left when returning requiring the power switch to be held for a reset. More of an annoyance because powering off when exiting the car prevents the issue. The other big gripe is for the St....
