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: 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 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.
Cons: Slow, no touch screen, cannot find establishments by name, memory is too small, DO NOT UPGRADE TO NEWER MAPSET!!!!, takes forever to get a signal, sometimes loses signal right before the next turn. Unreliable.
