Summary: Comments about Garmin StreetPilot C340: Directions are straight forward except where there is road construction. You must pay more attention to the exits and road or you may miss your exit or turn. Overall this is one of the better GPS units for its price range.

Summary: I spent a lot of time looking for a good receiver and eventually settled on this one. I liked the features and the reviews were generally very good. So I ordered this unit and thought that was the end of it. Well, I stumbled upon a website (gpsmagazine.com) and they mentioned units to avoid.
Summary: I purchased the Garmin c340 unit about a year ago and have used it on a regular basis since. Overall this is a fantastic unit that I just couldn't do without.. unfortunately it does still have a few drawbacks.
Summary: Dollar for Dollar this is probably the best/most useful elecronic device I have bought to date. I am already a fan of Garmin as I own a Forerunner 305 sports GPS watch and this product has further strengthened my faith in their product line.
Summary: first things first. man made GPS navigation systems. you can buy a $200 product or a $1000 product. they're both gonna have their flaws. but if you want a reasonably priced, DAMN GOOD GPS navigator, don't look any further! i got this one in oct '06..
Summary: I am a photographer for a local News Station, and I travel all day long. From one story to another, I am constantly in the car. In the days before this GPS I had one hand on the wheel, and the other hand holding my map book. As you can imagine, it was dangerous at times.
Summary: I thought it was about time to get a GPS with all the driving I do on the job and since the price was lowered to beat the Costco price. After free shipping and no sales tax, it was a bargain. Anyway, I have no trouble with the unit.
Summary: This is the second Garmin Streetpilot we bought. We gave the first one to my husband's parents who use it when they tour around the states in their RV. Mind that my in-laws are not the techno-geekie type, but after about 5 minutes of demo, they're off and on their way of happy-RVing.
