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.
Summary: I decided to buy this GPS because i will soon be driving from missouri to texas and get lost going everywhere. This was the first item i had ever purchased on ebay and did not do much review of the product or other similar products. i am however happy with the streetpilot. One downfall is the very very very small screen on it, however, it IS big enough to see where you are going and give directions. It is a good product.
Summary: This device is definitely not for people who have vision problems. This device is small! The screen in only 1.7 X 1.5 inches. This alone makes it very hard to see. BUT! With all of the features in the this product you would be interested to know that the Garmin I3 StreetPilot brings a lot of bang for the buck. Being portable is just one of the features that this tiny wonder has. The GPS mapping is pretty decent. Not foolproof, but will serf ice for most of us users.
Summary: I bought it because of its small size (don't need to use it every day.) Certainly like the size and simplicity of it. Fairly quick to find itself and recalculate. One drawback is inability to skip entering state and city first when going somewhere in the same city, but takes not too long to get used to.
Summary: I decided to buy a GPS because I found the directions I was getting from the online map sites were not reliable and frequently wrong. I didn't want to spend a bundle. I did dome research on the Garmin StreetPilot i3. It had all the features I wanted so I decided to go for it. I am so happy with this item. It is accurate and precise. I can put in an address and no matter how far off the course it has set I go, it manages to give me the most direct way to my destination.
Summary: Comments about Garmin StreetPilot i3: This is my second streetpilot i3. I bought the first one last year, I don't know how I every survived without one. When my son went back to college this year he took my gps with him. He drove 710 miles by himself without getting lost. My son has no sense of direction so my peace of mind was worth giving up my gps.
Pros: Compact, Easy To Set Up, Simple Controls, Strong Construction
Have you ever gotten lost? This little Garmin can help.

Summary: Have you ever gotten lost? Tired of having your wife or husband constantly mock the fact that you are “lost again”? I have the unfortunate curse of being absolutely directionless, if I make a wrong turn into an airport, it takes me ½ hour to figure the way out. If you have the same problem, this handy little device was a Godsend for me and could possibly be for you as well. My first question was the following: Is there a subscription services necessary for this device?
Summary: Good results so far with the GARMIN i3 Pilot, on local trips. I've used it on several short trips in the Upstate NY area, maps are fairly complete, and voice command instructions are excellent. It's simple to use, once you get past the initial learning curve. The GARMIN instruction sheet that comes with the i3 is relatively poor...it leaves allot for different interpretations, missing information, etc.
Summary: I had been looking at buying Garmin's C-330 unit because a friend has one and let me borrow it for the weekend. I liked the touchscreen feature and ease of operation. I had talked with my son about them a couple of times while I was searching for one on ebay. Come fathers day, my 2 son's and my wife bought me the i3 unit. It surprised them at how small it was and contemplated sending it back before giving it to me, but they went ahead and decided to give it to me anyway.
