Stick with the Garmin or Magellan

MLT, Amazon

  • Summary: This thing got me lost so many times, I was much better off without it. It often chose ridiculously out-of-the-way routes, and also tended to send me on wild goose chases for restaurants that didn't exist.

It's a mixed bag

James L. Mariner, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought the H/K 300 for its price and its big screen. It's easy to read w/o putting on my reading glasses while driving. Sound quality is fine for my old ears. But....and this is a big one for me: it won't hold a charge for more than a day! And that's w/o turning it on at all.

Buyer beware

  • Summary: I have returned 2 now...the first one just quite working and the second one couldn't receive a signal. The first one was not an out of the box failure, but the second was. The maps are at least 2 years out of date. You will definately double, triple or even quadruple your U-Turns with this device.

Would not buy again

J. Menkhaus, Amazon
4 November 2007
  • Summary: I was generally pleased with this GPS system--my first--when it worked. I liked the big screen and it was pretty user-friendly. Occasionally it would lose signal in a weird spot, but it wasn't a big problem. About 2 weeks after we bought the thing it died--would not turn on at all.

Cannot update maps, no saving points

Dean, Amazon
8 June 2007
  • Summary: The nice things about this unit are obvious: * the form factor * great screen * video support The bad points make me want to send it back: * The maps aren't very complete and they CANNOT be updated. Harmon Kardon's support is nonexistent and they certainly are far from providing map updates.

Works...but!

J. Foley, Amazon

  • Summary: The unit does a good job of giving directions. Although the software is rather in-flexible. It always picks the shortest route, not necessarily the easiest route. The unit has locked up on me a number of times, requiring it to be reset. I suspect it has something to do with heat.
