Summary: This GPS I'm sure would be fine for PC people, but no where in it's description did it say it was NOT Mac compatible. I had to search for someone with a pc go to their house and set it up there, then the directions don't match what it show on the screen at certain parts.
Summary: Bought this little gem for my motorcycle because I hate reading maps & riding! It is waterproof so no worries there... I use it in my car as well. Garmin has been better than expected with romware updates and free updates to the mapping software.
Summary: This GPS is perfect for those who want a little more than just A-to-B navigation. I'm used to programming routes with multiple waypoints (not just individual segments), and the Quest is, as far as I can tell, the ONLY car GPS in this price range that will do that.

Summary: I bought the Garmin because I had read here and elsewhere that Garmin had good products and good support. The device advertised all the features I wanted, so I went for it and have been extremely happy with it. I have encountered one bug, but it has an easy workaround, so no big deal.
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: I purchased the Garmin Quest to use in my truck, my boat and for long ATV rides in the back country mountains of Nothern California. Before purchasing it, I researched about every other GPS on the market.

Summary: I purchased the Garmin Quest in March 2006 after much hand-wringing and comparison shopping; the advent of the Quest 2 and the subsequent drop in price for the Quest, in the end, made the decision for me.
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: 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: It just plain works. You turn it on, it finds your location. You drive with it on a route, and you make a wrong turn, it gets you back on track. It doesn't hang erratcially, the maps are simple to download from your PC and it is clear to read in sun or night driving.
