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: 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 have had this unit for several years and like it alot. I have taken it to florida or wherever we go. It takes a few minutes to program but finds accurately where you want to go. I like how you can update the maps at Garmin for free. Only downside is you can now find cheaper models that have touch screen programming.
Summary: great unit small read out,large amount of info in a small package i have a newer unit made by mio and it has no detour feature,bigger display and spoken vioce of steet names but i still enjoy the i3 better it's older but still has great and better features
Summary: It was my first GPS of this type . Great starter GPS with the only drawback of updating software (cost 68.00) ....but the way I understand it true with any garmin. I'm a locksmith and it has saved me time and gas on my service calls.
Summary: The street pilot works good, The only thing I don't like is it has limited memory and you can only load some areas into the navigator. If you are traveling outside of those regions you have no maps or any other information.
Cute GPS with powerful function for general people
5 June 2008
Summary: First looking was an impression on a small gps with a cute design. With 2 buttons and 1 thump wheel you can manage almost every function at easy (but not so easy). You get clear voice, nice screen like a biger garmin. What i like : Cute GPS with full function, clear voice and nice screen What i do not like : Can not PAN screen to area i want, what i have to do is to SEARCH from WHERE TO menu and save to FAVORITE.
Summary: This is a n excellent entry level gps. It has all the features you should need to get from point a to point b with little trouble. Using the three button input can get some getting use to but I must say it does not hold you back. Finding places in the search can take a little time but the info and turn by turn is always accurate. I really like this nav. unite and am actually learning many shortcuts that I have overlooked for years.
