Summary: I am really surprised at the performance of this product. I did not realize when I purchased it that the maps were from 2007, and could not be updated. It does work , and the screen graphics are good.The MP3 app. in works well. However the Gps leaves a little to be desired.
Summary: It is a nice GPS for the money and has worked well in the car as well as a motorcycle but it is not water resistant. The maps were more current than another brand GPS that I purchased a year after I bought the Harman Kardon. The music player works well.
Summary: A solid unit, but beware, you are buying a product with outdated map data from 2007. You will get lost or mislead. I contacted HK about map updates, but they had no definitive answer. Rumor has it, HK doesn't intend to provide any updates to their customers because they've stopped investing in GPS.
Summary: Looses signal often, I live in New England so that was somewhat expected with the trees. System froze and stopped working in the Middle of Boston. Was extremely slow to load and calculate routes. Worked well when it was able to download the directions.
Summary: I don't like the product mainly because of two reasons: - It takes a very long time (1-5 min) till it finds the satellite connection. - It cannot really pronounce street names. It's not helpful to hear street names, but it's more trouble.
Summary: Well I received it and set it up. Put in my address to navigate to and it gave me spoken directions half way there and stopped and never came on again. I probably received the faulty one. But other than that the screen was a nice size the features seemed great.
Summary: Well satisfied with the instrument so far EXCEPT that though the voiced turns are geographically correct the naming of NUMBERED streets is at times way off. E.g. a left turn onto 84th street might be VOICED as a left turn onto 144th street.
Summary: Pros: . 4.3" (480x272) screen with text-to-speech for $300. . Integrated antenna . Clean, uncluttered, and mostly intuitive interface . Destinations easy to enter - more on this feature below . Large "buttons" . Touch screen requires only a light touch .
