Summary: I choose this rating because it wasn't perfect. There is no such thing as perfect. The life of the battery was not long. The navigation update information was inactive and needed to be subscribed unlike most GPS come with lifetime updated map and traffic.
Summary: Let my GPS charge overnight, went to unplug it to put in my car the thing was dead in less than five minutes when I unplugged it, it had a full charge. The suction cup doesn't hold up or suck up to anything in my car.
Summary: I bought a GPS 810 that went bad near the end of its warranty. HK sent me an 810 as a replacement ... but with no warranty. The BlueTooth couldn't sync to my cell phone, The video player stalled in some formats, The speech synthesizer gets numbered streets wrong, and the battery lasted a few months.
Summary: I've had my 810 for over two years now and have only used it a handful of times. The battery life is awful, just awful. And don't even get me started on the mount. It breaks so easy. And when it breaks, forget about harman/kardon support.
It has taken me from from Atlanta to Nashville, DC, Baltimore, Philly, and Midtown Manhattan and Back

Summary: Harman sent the 810 to me after a GPS-510 warranty exchange. Have also previously used the Garmin Nuvi. Right off the bat the solid construction is noticable against other HK's and Garmins. The menu interface layout takes to you very naturally, which pays dividens when using while driving.
Summary: I bought this unit on the recommendation of the sales rep. and I liked the graphics & 4.3" large screen. I travel for a living and after experimenting with a GPS unit in a rental car, I decided I had to get a GPS for my travels.
Summary: Overall an excellent product. First the bad. The battery had a dead cell upon recieving it, but this was due to the fact it sat in a warehouse for a while. HK offers a fair warranty to fix this(still in the process of replacing so I can't comment too much about service#.
Summary: First I have to tell you when you first buy the device leave it charge for 6 hours, then Update it ! it is really an excellent Device it runs on Windows CE and has plenty of extras (Video, Music and pictures) I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a GPS with extras (FM Transmitter not...
