Summary: This is a great device in it's own way. It's not really fancy and it doesn't have every single point of interest that I've wanted to find but it works well has a decent battery and takes me to where I want to go. On my device I had to turn on the maps because when I first got it it only had highways. When I went to settings and checked the box for turning the map on all the side streets showed up so I could actually get where I wanted to go.
Summary: This guy sold me a unit with a bad battery, I threatened him with a bad review as I knew Ebay would not support me. He is buying me a new battery. I had a problem with a purchase that I got burned on and Ebay would not help so I try to put the screws to anyone who's screws me not. Ebay has taught me to defend myself and you should too.............
Summary: Garmin no longer recognises the unit so there are no upgrades available. I bought a refurbished unit and it shuts down in direct sunlight quite a bit. For the price or the Garmin 500 which offers way more. A Quest of any model is a bad investment.
Summary: bought gps from seller. its a little old fashioned but its a good buy if your getting one of these for yourself for the first time. even without an insruction manuel its easy to use. just needed a little updating.
Summary: ...they are prone to antenna failures as each one of my past units has died this way, have a poor data entry system using a directional wheel over an alphanumeric grid and are frustratingly slow to compute the next event when used in city driving. By now though I have gotten used to the Garmin Quest having used one since they were introduced by Garmin. 6 or 7 years ago. I mostly use this on my motorcycle where I have a Quest specific powered cradle.
Summary: The Garmin Quest II Is small, rugged and extremely portable. It will also function as a hand held although it is not useful for geo-tagging/caching/tracking. It is waterproof and I have tested it during an extreme thunderstorm while riding from Colorado to Texas. I entered the storm near Abilene and from there rode continuously through a heavy downpour all the way to Fort Hood. I was soaked but the GPS was still functioning and still does.
Summary: I've had the Quest 2 for 4 or 5 years. I use it nearly every day. It is very lightweight and small. It does fit easily into a shirt or pants pocket for safety or use. It holds 500 waypoints! Not just 1 or 2, so waypoints or destinations from last week or years ago are still in the memory. They may not be on a list, but go to map mode, find the Icon, that you used and labeled, click and you are headed that way. You can build a whole trip and save it.
Summary: I bought the Garmin Quest 2 Car GPS Receiver three weeks ago and was immediately impressed with the number of features available on this inexpensive gps. The Garmin Quest 2 Car GPS Receiver size is perfect for carrying in a pocket and the battery has a pretty good lifespan of roughly 6 hours.important features easily. Overall, I'd recommend the gps if you're on a budget.
