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: 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 As other reviews have mentioned, the maps are a little outdated.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: Before buy my Quest I had had another handheld GPS from Magellan. That one was a terrible and didn't live up to anything I expected from it. The Quest is the exact opposite. The maps are easy to read and very complete, the battery life is long enough (up 20 hours on low backlight setting), and...
Summary: This has to be the best little gadget I've ever purchased, next to my iPod and Game Boy Advance, espcially considering how easily I get lost. Setup is pretty easy, just install the map software that comes included, download the selected maps to the GPS unit and you are basically ready to go.
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 recently replaced my trusty Garmin GPS V with the Garmin Quest. This review compares and contrasts the Quest to its GPS V predecessor. ---------------------- Quest Pros, versus GPS V: * smaller (you really can't appreciate from the dimensions or pictures, until you hold it in your hands) * lighter...
