Garmin A-OK, Software Sucks

tominator2000, Ebay
10 February 2008
  • Summary: Evidently when Garmin discontinues a product the support is discontinued as well. The maps are 'I' dependent and no updates are available. The I3 is a dream to use! No frills and ease of use are great, but the software is just not up to snuff even though the 'latest version.' I run the same area while driving a truck. My maps were getting tattered and torn so investing in a GPS seemed logical. No frills, just directions!

Pretty Good GPS + 5 Star Customer Support

bz, Amazon
30 July 2006
  • Summary: I have the Magellan Roadmate 300 for the comparsion. I like the size and the shape of the i3 and the ease of use; and the use of 2 AA batteries making the i3 very portable. A pair of AA can run for almost a day. Using the wheel is like using a mouse. It is no problem for me at all. The Roadmate 300 on the other hand must plug to the 12V to work. And the 300 is pretty big. However, the 300 does have a touch screen.

Not bad

  • Excerpt: I have had this Garmin Streetpilot i3 for about three or four years now and it has proven to be a pretty reliable sat nav that works fine in a vehicle or on foot as a device for navigating around London or any other city for that matter. While it is a little dated by modern standards we still make use of it as a back up when one of us is using the newer one that we have and are going on seperate journies.

inexpensive good if your on a tight budget easy to use

  • Excerpt: FOR compact easy to use relatively inexpensive and has clear voice guidence throughout the journey when it eventually gets you there AGAINST screen far too small sends you down bad pothole roads where there is no need too instead of main roads and always has to recalculate itself through journeys youve programmed in (wether an external anntenna would correct this i dont know) to sum it up you really probably would be better of with a tomtom if you can afford the budget...

Garmin Streetpilot I3 Sat Nav Review

TONY, Unbeatable
13 April 2006
  • Excerpt: Only weeks after buying a nuvi 310 it will not turn on and off at the switch - when connected in the car it works but then makes strange mistakes occasionally....I feel I cannot trust it to get me to my destination - on asking Garmin about the problem was told it would cost me over 100 pounds for them to look at it and then send me a reconditioned replacement unit !! This I find totally unacceptable. A highly dissatisfied ex-customer.

Direcciones a pilas

bobpoli, Ciao
24 December 2006
  • Summary: ¡No te dejes engañar por su tamaño! El Streetpilot I3 de Garmin es quizás el navegador GPS más pequeño del mercado. Su pantalla de escasas 2 pulgadas hacen pensar a quien lo ve que se trata de un juguetito, o incluso, de una maqueta a escala reducida de un navegador cualquiera... Lo cierto es que el Streetpilot I3 es de por sí tan fiable como el navegador más caro de toda la gama Garmin.
  • Pros: Compacto y fácil de usar
  • Cons: Pilas duran poco y carcasa frágil

Tra i più piccoli ma un po'superato nella grafica

Contevince, Ciao
8 October 2006
  • Summary: Dimensioni veramente compatte, decisamente essenziale nei contenuti(scordatevi POI e mappe Autovelox disponibili sui modelli di ultima generazione), tecnologia e grafica un po' superate, ma ideale per chi cerca un navigatore semplice da utilizzare. La rotella multifunzione a scorrimento permette una rapida ricerca. L'alimentazione con 2 pile 1.5v AA consente l'utilizzo(vivamente consigliato) anche con pile ricaricabili(meglio Ni-Mh da almeno 2400mAh!
  • Pros: Compattissimo, funziona anche pile ricaricabili
  • Cons: grafica e funzioni un po' superate

Me pones 150 gramos de navegador...

bobpoli, Ciao
23 July 2006
  • Summary: Engaña hasta la maqueta... No sería la primera vez que un vendedor está a punto de embalarla para vendérsela a un cliente como un navegador GPS real. Así, seguro que nos acusan de dar gato por liebre, pero es que la maqueta es de las mismas dimensiones y el mismo peso que el navegador real... La serie i de Garmin está definida por el propio fabricante como navegadores pequeños y "divertidos".
  • Pros: Su pequeño tamaño y su peso .
  • Cons: Las de todo GPS de Garmin .
