"Is less than half a star possible?"

  • Pros: hardware is high spec but poor quality components 2 USB Inputs and ability to read direct from a USB powered USB device (ie Passport) Bluetooth when working is extremely clear thanks to the external bluetooth microphone
  • Cons: Don't honour any warranty/offer no support. Fault rate for me was 30% of 30 systems purchased, this is costly and a headache. Linda and Wendy are too busy for service and will reply to a problem after 1 month,if at all. Interface is common on eBay.

"Don't buy any Garmin"

  • Pros: Nothing anymore.
  • Cons: The MSN Direct is going away. So much for the discounted "lifetime" MSN direct subsription. I basically prepaid full price for MSN Direct and now will need to buy a new navigation system.

  • Summary: Got the unit for my mother in law for christmas and spent two days trying to set it up. 1> The voice function does not work well. Kept trying to send us to a hospital 2> Even the most recent maps are not up to date, whole shopping malls missing that have been there for years. 3> Instructions for turns come only when you're right up on them. 4> MSN after two days could not update nor work the right way.

  • Summary: I have had a Garmin 2610 since 2004. I decided to buy this unit for my wife. We both could not get the system to understand the numbers we were speaking for the address and I had to hand type them in. It was also hit and miss on names and other voice recognition tasks. I have a 2007 Highlander Hybrid so the car is quiet. Also, something as simple as the MPH does not show up when using the route feature.
