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: I purchased this unit used from Amazon, and it was almost brand new when it arrived! I was expecting a little wear and tear but it is perfect. I would still be happy if I paid full price for it! The first thing I did when I received my unit was to upgrade the firmware. This corrected a few minor flaws and added the ability take detours. Sounds great but I haven't used it yet.
Summary: 1. Superb engineering, a jewel. 2. Window XP users: When loading maps after purchase : if message "USB device malfunctioning" (or similar) appears, call Garmin support. They will talk you through the known issue--it's not complicated but you'll never figure it out yourself. 3. I bought it for my wife, who has some issues with the learning curve. Prepare to spend time with the device and the wife.
Summary: Please allow me to preface this review with the fact that I have absolutely no sense of direction. For those with excellent sense of direction, this may seem like an extravagant purchase until they come down in cost. I had to travel to California recently (I only lived there my whole life before 1999), but since I had never driven in California before, I was quite nervous about doing so.
Summary: I owned a smaller Garmin unit for several years, but I recently bought the SPIII Deluxe package for use in my cars, and I'm really impressed with its capabilities. The route calculation feature when using the "shortest route" option has shown me new ways to travel between points that I've driven for years. The fastest route option is excellent also. The included software (City Navigator) amazes with its complete listing of restaurants, services, points of interest, etc..
Summary: If you have been looking at $2,000 (and up) factory-installed GPS systems, this device will look like a bargain. If, however, you are looking for a hiking-and-biking GPS device, it will seem weirdly expensive. Think of this as an in-vehicle unit that can can be used as a portable if necessary. Factory-installed units typically feature bigger screens, don't intrude on your personal space, and don't leave a power cable hanging off your dash.
Best external street routing GPS money can buy....

Summary: This GPS is wonderful. I bought it when it first came out and was very impressed. That just got stolen and insurance is paying to have it replaced. This deluxe package is great. 128 MB, FREE unlock, BOTH mounts, and FREE updated software...great deal...and for the same price I paid for less! The updated software has even more points of interest categories such as movie theaters. These jokers complain about it recalculating a route if you go off of it...
Summary: An amazingly effective compromise between the more expensive dealer or aftermarket built-in navigation system and the freedom of a portable. This Garmin Streetpilot offers a great deal of power with only a few sacrifices. The package includes a 128 MB data card and USB programmer. To load maps onto the card, fire up the included mapping software, Garmin MapSource, select the areas and download them. It's just that easy and very quick.
Summary: at the time of this review march 2002, installed gps units that are accurate and can route go for around 2000 dollars and up that are installed. this is the same database found in the acura and a gps is only as good as the database full of usefull info for routing. its still not cheap but luxury at a much less prrice around 800-900 can be yours.it talks just like the expensive units and it is dead on accurate just like the expensive units.
Pros: high performance navigation rivaling $2,000 systems
