works perfect for my needs.

kenlikestuff, Ebay
9 March 2012
  • Summary: the only thing that would make it better, would be a color screen. But then the battery wouldn't last as long.

Good GPS for APRS

KD5LAP, eHam.net
12 January 2010
  • Summary: Although this is a discontinued product, it is still a good GPS, even for APRS use. I bought one of these to use for a mobile APRS setup, and had it up and running within minutes. The unit can power directly off 12 volts DC, and provides NMEA data out via a serial connection.

Battery placement destroys SPIII

Pappy, Amazon
9 February 2005
  • Summary: I just destroyed my unit by getting one or two of the batteries reversed. I removed it from my truck to update the software from my PC. I never used the internal batteries while it was in the vehicle because of temperature conditions. It was always plugged into the lighter socket.

Close

Ragnar Danneskjöld, Amazon
9 August 2004
  • 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.

Excellent, but could be faster

Amazon
24 May 2004
  • 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.

Has problems with Win XP

Seth L. Chazanoff, Amazon
19 January 2004
  • 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.

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

Ronald Riley, Amazon
16 January 2004
  • 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 I had read several reviews in various places about the software being badly outdated and complicated to set up.

Excellent Product; Nothing's Perfect

Amazon
29 July 2003
  • Summary: This unit does an excellent job of helping you navigate, whether in familiar or unfamiliar territory. I have lived in the same city for 32 years and I explore a lot. Still, when asking the StreetPilot to calculate routes for some of my favorite Sunday rides, it has managed to show me some nice...

have a peaceful mind while driving

C. L., Amazon
20 July 2003
  • Summary: No more panic when you missing an exit on highway, this thing will automatic re-route and still guide you to the destination. It is portable so you can put it in your rental car while on vacation. My only complaint is that it doesn't allow you to change destination while driving, it's in safe mode.
