Summary: this is a great unit well built and stylish it looks good on the dashboard. it is feature packed and user friendly it was easy to learn how to operate it. the only complaint is that the FM transmitter is week and must be located accordingly this can affect where the unit sits and may affect your viewing angel and desired location on the dashboard.
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. I like the fact that it can play music, video, and bluetooth connection. None of the big name GPS have those functions built in.
Summary: GPS unit work good, according to information given by seller (battery does not hold charge). Remote control does not work or connect to GPS, based on seller's information, it was suppose to work. I'm pretty happy w/unit eventhough remote does not work.
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. 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.
