Summary: This GPS from Garmin was way ahead of it's time. It is very easy to use and can be used for both travel by land or air. Yes this makes an excellent low cost GPS for aviation. Just change the setting from road to compass (easy to do) put in your waypoint and the arrow will show you the way, including bearing, distance, your tracking, speed and time of arrival. For the money it was great when it first came out and if you can still find one it's still great today.
Summary: I use that product to make the life of my boys scouts more easy the products are in excellent conditions but more - prices. buy some items like that to use with child is a crazy position, its very friendly for use, the product don't have a manual but y tried to learn more used PDF documents. is the same products are the people paid much money the science is the same.
Summary: Great for a handheld GPS to use for Geocaching, about as basic as you can get. Would not use for traveling but once out of the car, you can work with the coordinates and bread crumb your way back.
Summary: StreetPilot III is a keeper! After quickly entering your destination whether it is a address, city, or point of interest such as a restaurant or shopping center, in a matter of less than a minute, the GPS tells you exactly how to get there. Not only does it tell you to make left or right turns, but it will notify you for instance to "bear right in 300 feet".
Summary: First of all, let me say I had a street pilot before. That was fine, the main drawback being that you have to precompute the route and stick to it. This unit does compute the route, recalculate it whenever you decide or have to leave it. No more problem with route too long to store, no more problem of badly pointed turns (like on the other side of the highway etc).
Summary: Following up on a previous review stating that Garmin would be upgrading to 128MB cards, I discovered some things you should know before purchasing. First off, yes, in June they are releasing what will be called the Street Pilot III Deluxe Package: Product #010-00232-10. It does come with a 128MB card and the latest version of City Navigator (4.01). This package has all of the regions unlocked.
Summary: First of all, beware of many of the reviews in this section, as they pertain to the StreetPilot or Color StreetPilot, and NOT the StreetPilot III. Unlike its earlier predecessors, the StreetPilot III does all of your routing for you, guiding you to your destination by telling you when and where to turn (with a voice as well as an onscreen display). The earlier models (StreetPilot and ColorStreet Pilot) required you to pre-plan your route.
Summary: I bought one from Amazon in June 2002. I have used it for a few days, enough to become generally familiar with it. I am very disappointed with the City Navigator software. I unlocked my home region (the mid-Atlantic region including Washington, D.C.) and loaded several maps into the data card with the included USB cable. The street maps seem accurate, but the features are not, as if the data were very old or merely grossly incomplete.
