Summary: My 1st GPS unit, so my rating of "5" is admittedly based on little experience - but MUCH satisfaction. I frequently travel for work and I am not one of those people who can just glance at a map and know their way around.
Summary: I love this thing! I bought it because I heard that it's very good for both road routing and also geocaching. Those reports were very accurate. The memory limit can be a pain if you want to load half of the country, but otherwise I'm thrilled.
Summary: I purchased a Quest on November 30th and received it on December 2nd. The price at that time through Amazon was $299 with free delivery. Great job Amazon! The Research: I looked at the Mio 136, the Navman iCN520, all Magellan products, and the Lowrance iway 500c.
Summary: I purchased this unit 8 months ago, and I think that I used the device long enough to be able to review it seriously. If I had made the review 2 weeks after purchase I would have given it 5 stars. It comes now with 2...
Summary: This is "THE GPS" to buy if you are looking for a compact yet efficient & affordable one. As other reviews have mentioned, the maps are a little outdated. It is very simple to use. The lack of expandable memory might be of concern if you are doing a coast to coast trip (without a laptop).
Summary: The perfect motorcycle companion. I bought my Quest a few months ago and then purchased the RAM mounting hardware for both my Honda Interceptor and Yamaha Royal Star. I used to take rides in the country and get lost. No more. Now I take rides and when I'm ready to come home, I push a button.
Summary: UPDATE: AUGUST 1, 2005 I have had the Quest almost 4 months. I love it. I even bought a bike mount so i can take the Quest with me on my road bike. I can program the turns from the cue sheet or make up my own route.
Summary: I moved to Boston about nine months ago and was having the worst time driving around. Basically, I was constantly lost and I couldn't drive anywhere by myself because I always had to have someone there to navigate for me. That was until I received a Garmin Quest for Christmas.
Summary: I just received my Garmin Quest and love it! Although I had problems getting familiar with the unit (totally my own fault for not really READING the manual) once I figured it out it's easy to get around in.
Summary: I've owed the Quest for about 6 months now, and simply put, its amazing. The screen is clear both at night and during the day. The 12volt speaker gets loud enough to hear over light coversations. The accuracy is good....once you acuire a signal from satellites. The battery life is decent.
