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. Spent some time on-line looking at this product along with the Garmin NUVI models and TomTom models. I decided on this one due to its widescreen format, mp3 and video capabilities, and price.
Summary: I have owned the Harman Kardon GPS-500 since April and I am submitting this review after owning it for one month. I have not owned another portable GPS unit, so the only thing I can compare it to is the OEM Navigation system in my Toyota Matrix. The boot up time and the unit's ability to lock onto a satellite signal is pretty quick. The screen resolution is sharp and bright, you can still see the screen even with the sun shining on it.
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. So far, here are my impressions: 1) Unit size is nice 2) Winshield mounting suction bracket is small and sturdy 3) Screen is clear and crisp 4) Menus are easy and intuitive 5) Battery life is good 6) Easy out-of-the-box setup 7) Does what...
Summary: Hola a todos compañeros de CIAO, este sistema de navegación de la marca HARMAN, es bastante completo y viene con muchas opciones para elegir nuestras rutas. La marca quizás no sea de las más conocidas, pero es muy fiable. Dispone de una pantalla táctil, de 4 pulgadas, en la que podremos ir seleccionando tanto el destino como la ruta que deseemos, ya sea la más corta, la más económca o la más turística.
Summary: Onestamente mi sembra un buon prodotto: avere tutte le cartine d'europa disponibili è una gran cosa. E' veloce nel ricalcolare i percorsi ma forse qualche opzione in più non sarebbe male. buona autonomia della batteria.
