Not exactly what I was expecting

Amazon

  • Summary: I have never owned a GPS before I purchased this one. Since I do a lot of travel for my job, I thought I'd finally bite the bullet and buy this one since it was the new Deluxe version.

Nice, but a bit confusing

C. Smith, Amazon
10 August 2010
  • Summary: My first GPS was a very old style that gave you longitude and latitude only. No roads. No water. Nothing. So the jump to the SP III was a big one. Had to struggle a bit to download the info (updated from the website) onto the unit.

Screen bug-a-boo

  • Summary: My Garmin 2610 has long been a terrific electronic unit. Now, for no known reason, the screen has shifted to the point where the touch does not allow you to enter text. Garmin wants $250 to fix the unit regardless of the issue.

Not so fast and furious

Antonin, Amazon

  • Summary: While recently traveling with the unit in Italy and Germany, I was very frustrated by a huge delay when recalculating the route after wrong exit. Not only the machine became somewhat confused where to go next, but it was not showing the right direction anyway.

Good hardware; lousy software and support.

  • 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.
