Summary: Good Features: 1. Intuitive user interface. 2. Feature packed. 3. Quality Bluetooth (the best BT device in terms of call quality). 4. Excellent dashboard mount (small and sturdy). Not So Good Features: 1. Battery life (~20 mins on a full charge). 2. Locks up often (learned to keep a paper clip in my key chain to reset it). 3. No way to call a number from the POI database using the Bluetooth connection (big miss). 4.
