Summary: I bought this unit for a friend as a gift. She's not too techy and she loves it! Very east to use. The only thing I didn't like about it was the touch screen when entering in an address, seemed to be too sensitive and lots of duplicate numbers/letters.
Summary: if you are planning to buy this gps, dont! It is the worst gps i've ever had. It always hang up most of the time. I tried to use on just a 6 mile trip and there it goes, it stop giving direction i programmed so i have to start entering the same destination five times just to reach my final destination, it means i have to stop five times on a six mile trip just to enter the same address, whew! thats very inconvinient i tell you.
Hadn't had any problems.It is easy and simple to use.

Summary: it is great. I've moved to a new town and this gps helps me get around. it is wonderful.when I got the gps I immediately programed my new address in and from there it was a piece of cake. I have gauged my shopping, my bady's daycare, and everything I do from my new gps system.
Summary: received in excellent shape, charged and then tried on a trip of two hours away. Display easy to read. No problems with GPS. Easy to program. No book but easy to figure out. All accessories were in good working order. Very pleased. have another GPS that went bad. I need this for my sec job, i do insurance accessments and require to travel and can not get lost.
Summary: The mapping works pretty well if you know your address. It would be nice if there were some more features with rout preferences. You can pick what you want to exclude (highways, ferries) etc... But you can't set what you would prefer. Also the points of interest are horrible, there is virtually nothing in points of interest. I did not buy the 100 dollars a year for the google service. That would have probably made the points of interest much better.
Summary: I have had two other widescreen GPS's that couldn't compare to this one. This has real time traffic updates that gave me warnings and alternate routes to avoid traffic congestion. To be honest, I felt guilty not paying more for it after the first time I used it. A true quality product. The maps and car location were dead on.
Summary: THESE ARE BETTER THAN I FIRST THOUGHT. THEY ARE VERY ACCURATE, SO I WOULDN'T SAY THAT YOU PULL UP TO THE NEAREST GAS STATION AND ASK HOW DO YOU GET TO THE BASEBALL HALL OF FAME IN WHICH HE STATES , LOTS OF PRACTICE !!!
Summary: Although I'm pleased with the operation of the Insignia GPS, it is a Best Buy brand and they control the updates which are very expensive. In the long run, I would have been better off buying a more popular and expensive brand with free updates. I would not get an Insignia GPS again, whether if was inexpensive or free.
