Summary: I've read good and bad reviews for this product, so I was a little hesitant to buy it, but it was the only one I could find that had bluetooth and the ability to output to my stereo aux input (I didn't want to use an FM transmitter).
Summary: I found Garmin's Nuvi 885T to be an excellent gps unit - once I got one that performed well and worked the kinks out ot it! I purchased my 885T about a month and a half before a planned trip with my in-laws. Out of the box the first unit performed flawlessly.
Summary: I would have given the 885t five stars, but, it is disappointing that the 885t (flagship) is not really the top of the line as its name may insinuate. I considered many reviews and reluctantly, for the voice-recognition feature, decided on the 885t.
Summary: I have liked this unit very much, however, there is something that you should know about the battery life. It is advertised as being "up to 4 hours." I thought that meant you could take it out of the power cradle and use it for up to four hours on the battery, such as in another car or while walking...
Summary: I have had my 885t for about a month now. I looked at many reviews before buying it. My concern was cost, comparing TomTom and other garmins to the 885t. Garmin has so many types and trying to decide what was best for me was challenging.
Summary: After struggling with Tom Tom units for a few years, I decided to go with a Garmin. The 835T does everything they say it does with varying success. Voice recognition is good, but not great - There are some words it just can't understand, like Target and Radio Shack.
Summary: This is my first GPS and its great. Being new to this I don't have any comparative info however a couple pros and cons: Pros: *Lots of POI's (points of interes) preloaded *Ability to add custom POI's *So far, the selection of routes chosen make good sense *Ability to control unit with speech...
Summary: Over all this is a good product, but I was dissapointed about two items. On other GPS's when you get to the point where you would turn, there would be a "Beep or Tone "to let you know where to turn, this is helpfull when there are other intersections close by.
