Summary: This review is better late than never, and therefore probably of more historical/collector interest than as buying guidance. But I do think the i2 is still worth buying if you find a lightly used one for cheap, and have a purpose in mind for it. I got an i2 a long time ago, maybe 2005 or so. I liked it so much that I got one for each of my kids, and my sister bought one too. Nowadays, it seems way outdated with only a monochrome screen (not quite true..
Summary: This was my first GPS unit and for the price that I paid, it was worth it. There are problems with losing satellite connection often and it's not as sophisticated as other units, but it works for my purposes.
Summary: This is the best affordable navigator, this product is a low budget product, system is easy to follow, voice is clear and directions are easy looked at display. As first GPS is easy to program, Maps are not allways updated but has yellow book data base to find a lot of interesting places as needed.
Summary: Great GPS unit for travel and confined spaces. This is a solid Garmin product that does as advertised. Routing and directions are clear and precise. Works well on a motorcycle with a small windshield or dashboard. Will not take up much space. About the size of a baseball. Suction cup works really well and can be hard to remove at times. Would give this a 5 if it had a color display.
Summary: Save yourself a ton of grief and avoid the whole Garmin line. Product support is just sad.(NO joke) Nearly impossible to register and thier site is more into selling upgrades than provding service. The Streetpilot i2/i3 itself is buggy and not at all user friendly but far better than their 800 number. Get Tomtom or buy a map.
