A good GPS for motorcycling but....

rtrider20176, Ebay
9 September 2010
  • 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.

Yummy Electronics sucks.

16 August 2009
  • Summary: The problem is not Garmin, it is "Yummy Electronics" from eBay. Steer clear of this place. It has been a disaster of no help with my problems. Basicaly, on your own if product has issues. Garmin finally came through with repair.

Review Written in 2008, an honest one..

J. Kang "mightymikee", Amazon
14 April 2008
  • Summary: I had this well over 2 years now. At the time of the purchase, it was like the best thing to have. Now it is 2008 where there are many more GPS units to compare it againt. This would be at the bottom of the list. I notice some reviews are written 2005. That is 3 years ago. You know how fast electronics change. I have traveled quite a bit and rented quite a bit of GPS units along with the rental cars, Philly, NYC, L.A.

Quest 2 trouble

Overstock
4 July 2007
  • Summary: Great price from Overstock.com I already own a Quest and thought I would buy a Quest2 because of the preloaded maps. The unit is slow at drawing maps, calculating routes, and alerting you of your next turn. Sometimes you pass your turn before it tells you to turn. Then it takes forever to recalculate to get you back on route. I have called Garmin they are aware of the issue and suggested I send my unit for testing.

Tooooooo Sloooooooow!

Woj "MO", Amazon
23 December 2006
  • Summary: Disappointed. It works great in the suburbs if there aren't a lot of streets close together. Way too slow calculating/recalculating in larger towns and cities. Also, my unit's antenna stopped working after a month. I bought an external antenna and it works fine, but I bought this unit for the compact size. I wish I bought something else.

Garmin Quest II

Steve A. Ganje, Amazon
3 November 2006
  • Summary: It is small and light weight, probably perfect for hikers. I think the battery is supposed to last 5-8hrs away from the car. The software is pretty versatile and it lets you do a lot. My biggest complaint is that it is very slow. I'll be typing in a name to help filter my destination choices, and if it is more than 5-10 miles away, it takes forever for it to show up.

Un navigatore che non funziona in citta'

fabiocorda, Ciao
1 October 2007
  • Excerpt: Potrei dire inutile, visto che ogni volta che ne ho bisogno non riesce a recupereare le informazioni dal satellite. Nelle città bastano palazzi troppo alti o un viale alberato per farlo bloccare in attesa di acquisizione. Non funziona bene nelle seguenti ...
  • Pros: semplice da usare
  • Cons: non prende bene soprattutto in città, caro, difficile da aggiornare
