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: I have owned all the really popular gps brands and none of them come close to HK in quality. This is the way gps units should be. Very sophisticated interface, not tacky and cartoony like Garmin or Tom Tom. Don't pay attention to any bad reviews about these units. They are probably due to user error or from leaving them in a hot or really cold car. These are sensitive units and require a little bit of care but what man made item doesn't.
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. However, will not buy another Harmon Kardon GPS system.
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Summary: A solid unit, but beware, you are buying a product with outdated map data from 2007.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. So now I'm stuck with an out-of-date GPS.
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: I like the look and the features of this unit but very disappointed with it right now because i am on the third unit which i hestatingly use. First unit did not get GPS signal after some time and it gave bad directions. The second unit took time to get signal and started freezing up gave bad directions too and now using the 3rd unit which has frozen up once already.
