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. Users can switch back and forth from mp3 playback to Map view with one click. This unit has guided me across the country,.
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#. The FM transmitter has terrible reception, even in my newer Mercedes-Benz with the expensive, full Harmon Kardon audio option from the factory.
Summary: The unit is a fair unit. You cannot expect GPS to know every direction and location. GPS Navigation is a guide for the direction, not perfect. It is fair to say that it dos the job of the navigation possibly 85 to 90% accurate. I do not think none of GPS Navigation unit does the job for 100%. This units comes with the entertainment package as well as the remote. If you are looking for the GPS with Entertainment, this is it. Do not expect the unit is perfect.
Summary: I have owned this harman kardon gps for about 6 months, I had a couple of issues with the unit at first, but quickly overcame the problems with a couple of calls to customer support, They were very helpful and gave me the answers I was seeking. The unit at first would not interface with my verizon phone with the names for calls, numbers were no problem.
Summary: I've been using it for only week now and here are couple of initial comments - Pros - 1. Not too big 2. Good design - asthetics, ability to jump from one application to another without quitting the current application 3. External volume control - you don't have to touch on screen repeatedly yo raise or lower the volume. 4. Auto-brightness - has a light sensor 5. GPS application color scheme - not too bright at night to make you want to turn it off. 6.
Summary: If you are looking for something different in a GPS - and that would also include the single coolest interface in a GPS unit - look no further. I had no idea Harmon Kardon, maker of great Audio equipment, was in the GPS business, but after working with a demo in a local Best Buy, I simply had to have one! Why this unit? I travel extensively for work.
Summary: The firmwear update is up. I see alot of people giving the battery a con. At 3.5 hours for movies (that look and sound great) it beats alot of DVD players when on the plane. Longer time and fits in my pocket. I'm having difficulty getting my Samsung SGH-D307 to pair up. I got it once then it dropped within a couple minutes and haven't got it to work yet. My phone works with the Uconnect in my van so I think it just I missing something.
Summary: This may sound a little silly, but I was sold this GPS on my first visit to a store. The sales guy really sold me on it based on my criteria. I brought it home and began feeling as if I was bamboozled. So, I returned it (with a restocking fee) and decided that I needed to do some homework. I looked at every possible types of GPS devices. I purchased a Navigon because I liked the graphics. Even the graphics turned out to be a disappointment. So, I returned that one.
Summary: Pros: - My Motorola Razr V3 Phonebook was uploaded to the 810 without any problems, touch dialing is really nice. - Navigation screen is large enough and the 3D view is handy, night mode is cool. - Zooming while in 3D mode is nice to check out surrounding areas - GPS startup is quick (~10 secs) and interface is intuitive. - It is one of the nicest looking 4"-5" GPS units, feels substantial and is finished in graphite.
