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.
Summary: After much shopping around I picked the Garmin Quest 2 for its features and price. However, what I got was a product that would not work out of the box. Yes it would turn on and off go through the set up and menu options. Have taken this unit on several trips each time with another person trying to get the unit to work with no luck. What did I find wrong! o Will not navigate and give voice instructions, will only say (satellites lost) o Will not give accurate location.
