Summary: I bought this GPS for my 60-something year old mother as a birthday gift. I bought it specifically with her in mind because of its simplicity. Many GPS systems have a multitude of buttons, confusing menu systems and exotic options.
Summary: EDIT Dec 25th: One thing I want to point out is that A Gordon is wrong about the map upgrade to the latest version 7. I bought my C320 a couple of weeks ago and the map upgrade is 100% FREE. You have to go on the Garmin site and order the DVD, but it's totally free and you use your existing reg.
It outperforms the navigation system of a Mercedes...

Summary: I took out one star because of the difficulty setting it up. Otherwise, the unit is very good. First the good news: This unit does everything it is supposed to and do it well. The direction it gives is very accurate and recalculation is fast.
Summary: I first had trouble with this because I guess my SD Card was locked and I couldn't get the maps on it so I went with their 128 mb card. I put NJ, NY & PA on it (the states I was travelling within) and it worked well. PROS: 1. Lots of locations nearby such as restaurants, shopping, gas etc. 2.
Summary: I bought the StreetPilot c320 in July 2006 when it was $320. In the past few months I've been using it, it has been very reliable and easy to use, and definitely worth the money. I noticed that the price has dropped even more since then, so that's an even better reason to purchase it.
Summary: This one will get you there! After reviewing about 10 GPS car navigation systems I chose this one. The Garmin Street Pilot c320 is easy to use, failry accurate in locating restaraunts in the area, (some restaraunts that closed years ago still show).
Summary: I recently moved to the Phoenix area and have to drive all over the Valley. This unit does live up to their promise out of the box. If you go to Garmin's website, you can download updated drivers, computer to c320 unit interface that allows you to customize the unit for your purposes.
Summary: The only reason this doesn't get five stars is because it's not perfect, but it's very very good. When driving on some curvy back roads in West Virginia it got a bit confused about the proper route and took me through a private neighborhood with only one exit, the way I came in.
Easy to use, good value, minor mechanical problem.

Summary: Got the C320 for a trip to California. Was able to load Arizona, all California, and a couple more states on the included SD card. Routing was easy to use, did have some problems acquiring satellite signal downtown in between tall buildings (drove in the general direction of where I thought I needed...
Summary: I am a Police Officer in a large city and was recently transfered to a new section of which I had no knowledge of the streets. The key map I had did the job but gave me a headache evertime I used it because I just didn't know the area and didn't know what I was looking for.
