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.
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: 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: 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%.
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.
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.
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...
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.
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.
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.
