Street Pilot III is good but a few things could be improved

Ronald Riley, Amazon
10 August 2010
  • Summary: I was very skeptical of this unit for several months before I bought it. My worst fear was the mapping software. I had read several reviews in various places about the software being badly outdated and complicated to set up.

Great product, but you may have different expectations...

  • Summary: This is by far the best GPS I have ever used. The only thing I would caution is how fast this GPS does its recalculation. Here are some examples: 1. I programmed the destination information for my wife to travel from my friend's house, she jumped into the car and was ready to go.

Has problems with Win XP

Seth L. Chazanoff, Amazon

  • Summary: The drivers for the USB card programmer, which you WILL want to use do not support Windows XP. This can be solved by going to the Garmin web site and downloading the updated driver, but you have to either figure this out for yourself, or read this review.

Excellent, but could be faster

  • Summary: First off, this thing is great. I'm constantly amazed by how well it works and gets me to places that I have no idea where are. The screen is easy to read and there are different viewing modes depending on what's best for you. When you make a wrong turn, it recalculates and gets you back on track.

I recommend this unit

Huzzar, Amazon

  • Summary: I've owned my unit for about 5 months and love it. It's one of the few pieces of electronic equipment that has passed my wife's "waste of money" test. I bought the deluxe package to get access to all of the US, and have the portable bean-bag mount.

Revision.

Rheumor, Amazon
10 August 2010
  • Summary: I reviewed this unit before, and I gave it 5 stars. However, I just returned from a trip to Boston where I had this unit in its Neverlost itineration in a Hertz car. I have been using only the Mercedes system for a while now, and I didn't realize how much slower the Garmin is in comparison.

Close

Ragnar Danneskjöld, Amazon

  • Summary: This almost does what I want it too. I bought this as a replacement for a GPS V - a very good GPS mapping system in its own right. I require a larger memory capacity, and a larger screen, so I got it here. The color screen is much easier to read.

Something Mac users NEED to know...

Nate, Amazon

  • Summary: I did a little research into 'navigation systems' before looking over this particular one, so that way I wouldn't be so impressed. Didn't work - this is a SWEEEEEEET little set-up. You can transfer it from on car to another, and even bring it on trips with you for use in rental cars, too.

Great for travel (if you can take the space)

Ryan, Amazon
10 August 2010
  • Summary: I use mine for business travel - It goes carry-on with my notebook. I have the memory loaded with all the areas I go often, and use it to find customer sites, places to eat, etc. Works great. Has some trouble keeping up with left/right turns when there are many turns in a row (eg: parts of SF).
