Summary: Great GPS mapper!! Nice and bright, so it's easy to see from all angles in the daylight. I've used it on two cross-county trips so far with no problems. No updates have been do so far, but I'm sure they'll be easy when needed.
Summary: Do not buy this product. I bought this gps to update from my Garmin 2610. The routing does not work, setting fastest route and avoid unpaved roads will send you down little tracks with grass in the middle. A protracted email correspondence with Garmin, after an appallingly rude treatment by phone support, did not resolve this issue. "the gps is working as designed" was the final email.
Summary: Flakey routing & screen too small. Extremely expensive for what you get. "Permanent" mounting bracket is fiddly ( with a tiny screw that is easy to lose, which secures the power cable to the bracket) with no included weather cover for the contacts which are exposed when the unit is removed and provided RAM mounting hardware is bulky. I've been using Garmin products for many years, but this seems way overpriced for whatever, alleged, durability might be present.
Summary: I was expecting a lot more from a $699 (retail) GPS. It has less features than my old NUVI 350 (no MP3) so I sent it back. Super fit/form, but the search function was awkward with the "glove friendly" design (multiple screens for the keyboard). Reception is rock solid, but the unit would not charge in the motorcycle cradle/mount. The USB charging port was not accessible when mounted on the M/C mount either. I guess for the money I can buy a new smartphone and use an app.
Excellent unit just missing the built-in MP3 (used to come with one)

Summary: My only complaint is they did not show in the sales text that they no longer had the built in MP3 player. With out it the audio from maps will not over ride the radio / CD player or other MP3 system. I was replacing my old unit now no music that is in Sync with my Harley-Davidson system. For just GPS and mounting system excellent. Rob W.
Summary: I purchased this sat nav and had the charging cradle fitted to my bike,first day I used it half way down Germany low battery flashed up,the charging devise was not charging sat nav unit,caused me big problems,had to buy 12 volt car charger and a givi sat nav holder in Austria at a cost os £80,on my return got a refund from Halford.Wrote a letter to Garmin to get a refund for the bits I had to buy,NOT AT ALL INTERESTED,the main fault is the 350 only has 2 charging...
Summary: Upgraded to this from TomTom Rider for the features such as SD card to be able to transfer routes, create route's from google maps. Despite having a degree in Computer Science and career in IT I spent hours attempting but failed to use these features. Could not copy a google route without using third party shareware.The Basecamp software is extremely slow as it needs to be connected to the device to use the maps and has a very poor user interface.
Summary: This product is a good product .Description did not tell what is included so a mount and cord were ordered extra with expensive shipping.Several different mounts were included and a GPS cord also.
Summary: I do not recommend this GPS. I bought it to obtain the voice prompts for directions as an upgrade to my Garmin Nuvi 550. The Bluetooth connected fine to my headset (Interphone F5), but the directions voice was garbled, missed and gave wrong turns (e.g., left when I needed to go right) and prompts came at a turn with no prompt early enough before a turn. Often the navigation bar said I was off road, but the GPS displayed valid main roads that I was on.
