Summary: Comments about Garmin StreetPilot C340: I've purchased 5 for different family members and they love it. Charger is loose in some autos so must make sure it it securely plugged in at lighter and on unit or it shuts down.
Pros: Acquires Satellites Quickly, Easy Menus, Easy To Read, Easy To Set Up, Reliable Performance, Simple Controls
Summary: Easy to use and very compact, this GPS unit is superb. As a directionally challenged individual, I decided to purchase a GPS. I decided on this brand/model as it was the same one I had used in a rental car. Purchasing a "factory refurbished" model on ebay allowed me huge savings, like-new quality, and a 1-year factory warranty. (Had I not known it was a refurb, I would have never known the difference. Even the packaging was like new.
Summary: I like the garmin gps. this is the second one i bought because my first was stolen out of my luggage. i am not technical but it is pretty easy to set up. the problem is that once you make a wrong step it is hard to correct. i also had a hard time attaching it to the windshield.
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.
Pros: Easy Menus, Easy To Read, Easy To Set Up, Reliable Performance, Simple Controls
Summary: i bought this gps to try it out and it was great. no more using map books or making a wrong turn. it works soo well that i bought one for a co-worker, my wife and my mom. i found that for my mom in particular she is now not affraid to drive almost anywhere. this is an excellent product and i would recomend this unit to anyone.
Summary: I only used it once since I received it. I had put in the address for the destination, then I realized I made a mistake. I tried to correct the address to the right one wasn't able to change it. The address was 122 Cider Road etc. what I wanted was 122 Cider Ridge Road, the thing wont let me type the complete address, before it automatically puts the same name of destination as I first Had put in.
Summary: I bought the garmin street pilot,because i was tired of always getting lost,the receiver works great, picks up the sattlitte single quick. this is my 1st gps and it worked good. i liked the fact that all i had to do was just turn it on and its ready to go.
Summary: I bought this for my husband as an early Christmas gift. He's not very "technically inclined" so I wanted something that was simple to use and bought this based on the other reviews here. I bought the refurbished unit (as I buy most of my stuff from overstock) and as usual, it's in great condition and works great! The manual is short and yes, this unit is very simple to use. Within 5 minutes, it was set up and ready to go.
Summary: I HIGHLY recommend this product. Easy to use, understand, and for someone who always gets lost, this is the most effective tool I will ever need (other than having someone else drive). This is my 4th refurbished product I have purchased this year, and have absolutely no qualms of doing so in the future. If any of you are in doubt as to buying refurbished, please give just one item you are interested in a try. You will not be disappointed.
