Summary: This was a good GPS back when GPS was for the rich. At $350.00 (Back then) it was a deal. I traveled a lot for work and gave me a safety net when I traveled. This little guy started my love of Garmin product.
Summary: I purchased this Garmin because I use to have a larger Garmin and the battery died completely on it. Well, it had a lithium battery and it would have been such a pain to replace the battery so I looked in to other alternatives to the lithium battery. I have had cameras that have the fancy batteries and I have had and still have one that uses double A's. Battery wise it has proven to be the best!
Summary: This isn't loaded with bells and whistles but it got me where i needed to go. Albeit with a slight detour or two. The Best thing I can say about this Garmin GPS... is that it's cheap and effective. But, be careful when it tells you to turn. You might end up at an airport you don't want to be at.
Summary: Would prbably work well if I lives in california. I live in Kansas and is absulatly no usw to me! Did not say in listing, it needed a $174.00 upgrade,very displeases. I will stay with my Tom Tom GPS it worrks very well!
Summary: 5 years ago when it came out it was great and 600$ but most people who sell this today have it in bad condishion or they will break soon and there is no replacement parts, so its a gamble weither you will find a good gps that will last.
Summary: This was our first GPS. Without a touch screen it is slower to program but still a great little unit. Small screen by todays standards but the turn-by-turn was excellent and it never got us lost. Once in awhile it would take FOREVER to aquire the satelite but we finally just turned it off and back on. That would clear whatever was stopping it and then it was fine. I finally broke it when I dropped it on the power plug and it snapped off the adapter inside the unit.
Summary: i like the way it operates, but have a hard time getting information from garmin on how to get a code to be able to download the map. Also, with no manual have to only guess what to do as far as eliminating old addresses. other than technical issues, it works wonderful and is smaller than my tom-tom, but is brighter and easier to read. Great little item, but need a manual.bought it because my tom-tom died, so i thought, 2 wks. later it started working again??
