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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
