Summary: I brought this for my trip to Europe this June (northern Spain and southern France). What a disaster! The device just went blank on A64 on our way to Eugenie les Bains (I am glad it did not quit while we were driving in the Pyrenees). We ended up using my AT&T iPhone to guide us there.
Summary: there are toomuch problem with this model. I used to have a C340 and I was very satisfied with that one. When I have to buy another one, I pick Garmin without second think. Unfortunatele, this one give me a lot of trouble.
Summary: First let me start by saying that I also own a Garvin Nuvi 360 (have for a few years now) and absolutely love it. It's still working well. The only reason I purchased the Nuvi 850 was so that I could have one dedicated to my vehicle.
Summary: Hello all, This is my first ever review of any product, but I love my new Garmin. I have never owned a GPS unit before, so I don't have anything to compare it to, but for what I need this unit goes above and beyond. I am please with the cost that it was. Very worth it. Great unit!!!!
Summary: I have been trying for several weeks to get some help in using this device or getting someone to respond with some answers. The mechinism that Amazon has in place is literally useless for a non computer literate person like myself to navigate through.
Summary: I won't add much to what already has been said about Nuvi 850. However, there are a couple of things that no other reviewer mentioned - the unit LAGS in comparioson to the other Nuvis I owned (680 and 760).
Summary: I have used a Garmin marine device (GPSmap276c) for years, and after I sold my boat, I tried it as an automobile device. Pretty heavy and hard to mount. So I started looking for an automotive model. I researched for a couple of weeks and made several searches on Amazon.
