Garmin Quest

Overstock
15 September 2007
  • 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. So, so far, I am NOT in love with this. I called the Garmin support people, they confirmed it was not Mac compatible, and said I could by the Quest 2, which is pre-loaded, forget it.

A basic entry into the world of portable GPS devices

Richard J. Harrison, Amazon
16 May 2006
  • 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. After two months of use in multiple metropolitan (Charlotte, Atlanta, Indianapolis, Tampa, and New York City) and rural areas, I have the following thoughts regarding the Quest. 1.

"The first try"

CNET
12 September 2004
  • Pros: Compact, reasonably priced, easy to use and nifty to own.
  • Cons: Flighty satellite linking - off and on. Still requires complicated loading of data from your computer, basically a little GPS receiver that you load from discs. But once you get the hang of it...

Garmin Quest Sat Nav Review

Roddy Justice, Unbeatable
18 June 2005
  • Excerpt: I bought this Garmin Sat Nav 5 years ago and it has not once let me down. Really great equip. The only downside is that you cannot find places using postcode which is a nuisance as most people give you postcodes to find a place. The street number and name has to be put in first and then it confirms which postcode is the one you want. Not nice if you only have a street name and no number.
  • Pros: Reliable, never let me down in five years of constant use.
  • Cons: Does not seem to work on postcodes

abbastanza comodo

chicco82, Ciao
24 September 2006
  • Summary: è un piccolo navigatore utile per le persone alle prime armi nei confronti dell'elettronica, molto comododaportare sia in macchina che in moto, volendo si può portare anche se si và a fare una passeggiata in città che si voglio visitare, infatti scaricando gli aggiornamenti dal sito (CONSIGLIATO) si puo vedere dove sono ubicati ristoranti, alberghi e musei. Con l'aggiornamento la precisione del luogo dove si è è molto più precisa.
  • Pros: piccolo e si può usare in moto
  • Cons: le indicazioni audio nn sono perfette
