Well designed, robust product with few limitations.

Summary: I actually bought this item for the display screen since mine was broken,and a new screen was unavailable from the manufacturer, being a discontinued item. It works so well but with USA/Canada mapping, that I've decided to use it for a forthcoming trip to Canada instead. Result!
Summary: I just recently got this GPS and had a full 3 days to test it out. Overall, I would say it's a very good GPS unit but with some notable flaws. BACKGROUND I was using a Garmin C330 that I got 2 years ago until it decided to bite the dust on me.
Summary: I got mine because I am going into real estate. I has helped to guide me to a couple of houses already. I like the way it zooms in to an intersection when it wants you to turn, then zooms back out automaticly. I like the size too. Not too small. The mount works really great.
Summary: THE INSTRUCTIONS ARE A LITTLE CONFUSING SOMETIMES. IT TAKES THE MOST COMPLICATED ROUTE AND THE INSTRUCTIONS ARE IN FEET. IT WOULD BE EASIER FOR US IF IT WOULD TELL "PREPARE TO TURN RIGHT ON NEXT STREET..." I GET CONFUSED WHEN IT SAYS "IN 70 FEET TURN RIGHT..." OTHERWISE IT IS FINE.
Summary: OK - so it may not be perfect, but I like it. It is easy to use - twice this past week, I was able to get around some major congestion in the metro Atlanta area thanks to the HK - and I know nothing about Atlanta's streets. I have used a Tom Tom in the past, but prefer the HK.
Summary: I've own 2 other GPS units before, both handhelds (a Garmin and a Magellan). They are primarily used for hiking/camping. I also have a built-in OEM GPS navigation unit in my MDX. I bought this unit for my wife for her to use in her car.
Summary: I've own this GPS for well over a month now and used it all around So. Cal. and for a week in Vancouver, BC, Canada during a business trip. While it is far from perfect, it is a very good, almost great GPS. Pros: 1) It looks great. In my opinion, it's the best looking GPS out in the market.
