  • Summary: The only major down side to this unit is the poor sound. The volume is too low to be heard over the slightest amount of background noise.

GRREEAT GPS!

M. Widner "Huckleberry", Amazon

  • Summary: I never really thought about buying a GPS for my car. Most of my experience with these have been in rental cars. Those were Magellan systems and they were awsome I thought in strange towns. At the time of purchasing this Garmin unit, I was in yet another strange town and my rental car didn't have the option. So I shopped around local places and online. This GPS is almost awsome! Why "almost" you ask?

Better than ever

M. Bryer "markobaldo", Amazon

  • Summary: As full time RVers, we have been using navigation systems since their infancy. User friendliness, accuracy, voice commands and an easy to read screen make this unit a must-have. A buggaboo we've run into relates to the voice commands. We have a very large, noisy truck (a small semi-tractor,really) and the unit, on occasion, has difficulty understanding my voice commands. Note: this unit is not recommended for motorcycles as it is not waterproof.

cool

  • Summary: So far I have enjoyed this product. It has proven to be very usful in areas that I do not know. My wife enjoys the voice recognition so I can still concentrate on the road and not pushing buttons on the Gps The bluetooth works great. When the phone rings even if its not easily reachable while driving the nuvi tells me who it is and I can answer it witht the push of a button.

Very good product, but has an annoying bug

Byte Runner Technologies "Sean Dudley", Amazon

  • Summary: The Nuvi 880 is really cool. It understands speech quite well. (although I had to use the add on external microphone because my vehicle noise is rather high since it is a diesel vehicle.) With the microphone, as long as I speak clearly and don't speak too quickly (normal speed is fine), and leave a slight pause between words, it works very well.

  • Summary: Purchased via Amazon for 1/2 the price of the same unit at Best Buy. 90% accurate and extremely helpful refinding the freeway ramp in an unfamiliar city or town. Need to review some route choices that could place you on a two lane vs the freeway for a more direct route. Modify as you see fit. MSN Direct useful but not available in very many places.

  • Summary: My wife and I chose this Garmin because of the very robust speech recognition feature. We wanted to be able to drive and 'talk' to the device, because, frankly, pushing buttons while driving is distracting at best and dangerous at worst. This GPS fits the bill perfectly. I have an accent and the device still recognized my verbal commands. The interface is the typical Garmin interface, created with the user in mind.

happy but have some issues

PD - seattle "PD - Seattle", Amazon

  • Summary: Quick review. Set up was really easy out of the box. Disappointed in the non yellow page feature - ie they have points of interest but they do not include everything that you can get in a GPS of a rental car. (that came with a yellow page lookup feature that seemed to have everything). However if you know the address of the Point of Interest you can type it in. Really liked the on screen touch display. The voice recognition is excellent.
