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 tow a show car around the country and didnt want to fumble with road maps, so I bought the Street Pilot III. The thing works great, its very portable, and rarely gives me any problems. I load in the data for the area im traveling to before I head out, then use all the preloaded info to help me find restaurants, hotels, whatever!
Summary: I bought this for a 4300 mile road trip I was planning. I'm not real computer smart and did have to call the 800 numnber to help me set it up. The book isn't real clear for someone who has never had a GPS before and is not familiar with the phrasing they use. But once I got the help on the phone, it was kind of "duh". Their hours could have been a little more user friendly. We used it around town before we left just to get the feel for it. On the trip it was great.
Summary: I am admittedly directionally challenged. When I took a new position doing on site software training throughout New England, what worried me most about the new job was getting lost. After 2-3 times getting confused or mislead by Mapquest directions, I took the plunge and bought this GPS for my car. I was truly concerned about spending this much money for something I wasn't sure I needed.
Summary: I bought 1 then after using it. After using it for a week or so we bought 2 more for my family members. They work great. We take long trips and don't know why we didn't get one before. You will never get lost again. The speaker is small but works great.Shipping was very good. I have no complaints at all.
Summary: I continue to be amazed at the accuracy of this unit. Not even observing the display, one can easily navigate any route following voice prompts only. This is not a toy but an open door to the technology available to us in the 21st century.
2400 miles in 5 days and the Garmin took me to and fro!

Summary: I bought this little gem for the specific purpose of an upcoming vacation. I just got back this evening, and here are my thoughts. Price: I really don't think you can go wrong here for the price. A GPS system for under $500, with a color map (full screen if you choose), current street maps that are fully unlocked, talking directions, visual directions and waypoint setting (marking) right from the main unit.
Summary: I purchased this in June of 2004. I was going on a cross country trip and I have ZERO sense of direction. I wanted a GPS system for my car, that would talk to me as I drove (this is an option you can turn off if you don't like it) but that wasn't in the $1000 and up range. For the amount this is selling for it is a great deal.
Summary: I drive for a part of my job and was skeptical about how this would work for me. After using the StreetPilot on the first day I was 100% convinced. No more maps and MapQuest for me; I just plug in the address and go! This is a phenomenal product and has more than paid for itself in the 3 weeks I have been using it. Plus, Amazon's price is $200 less than Best Buy. Highest recommendation.
