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: 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.

Summary: Garmin Quest II Handheld GPS I don't normally write reviews but felt compelled to comment on this unit. I have several garmin gps', I am usually an early adapter, I understand tech. This unit is an EMBARRASSMENT to an otherwise outstanding company. Yes I read the reviews here and other places, flashed the firmware, updated the software, deselected non-relevant maps.
Summary: This GPS ONLY work when you make no mistake/missing/stop/break/change on the route you set before you start driving. Suppose it would work on Marine, but didn't test it yet. This GPS is for my friend. I've use others for 4 years and I do the testing on this one. I never expect it would be sooooooooo slow to re-calculate. When you lost or miss a turn, it just frozen there and doing nothing for you lost.
Summary: We purchased the Quest II as a 2nd unit because we like our Quest I so much. Quest II is a *big* disappointment for one simple reason -- it's too slow. Garmin tech support says Quest II is 10-15% slower than Quest I due to the larger memory chip; we ran side-by-side comparisons with both versions, and our experience was more like 200-300% (we even tried another Quest II w/ same results).
Summary: ho acquistato un Garmin NUVI250, qualche mese fa, ma non funzionava: prendeva il segnale satellitare dopo 30/40 minuti. Dopo 3 volte che viene mandato all'assistenza non funzionava ancora quindi finalmente lo sostituiscono con uno strumento nuovo, ma purtroppo anche il secondo presenta lo stesso problema: prende il segnale più o meno con le stesse modalità del primo.
