Summary: Well, I'm glad I sold this unit years ago right after I bought it (and purchased a different one). The value is just going to get less and less on this. I just wanted to warn other buyers planning to buy this now--DON'T! At the time, I bought this for $200 thinking that was a great deal...
Summary: The coordinates are slow to load, I bought a GPS unit so I don't have to make U turns. I make the same amount of U turns that I would make with just having a map printed out online. My unit I bought new for 200, but during the 6 months that I have owned the unit, it has been out of commission for 2.
Summary: I paid ~$250 for a new unit and am very happy with it. It's a bit of a hastle to update the software and the maps but it is worth it. It can be a little slow to link up to the satelites at times (2-3 minutes) but for the cost I'm happy with my purchase. Works weel on both my car and motorcycle.
Summary: The GPS does not locate Satalites very well and it does not accurately locate where current location is. When using it to get to a location, and you miss the turn, it will not recalculate the route, it will only get you to turn around and get back on original path, even though there is a straight...
Summary: Got the eAvinu a few weeks ago, did not read instructions, just plugged it in. It guided me accurately from Tenn. to WV then on to Monroeville, PA. All turns and guidance was right-on. Pretty fast and it was very accurate.
Summary: I purchased this GPS because we travel some and needed a guidance system. I liked the looks of this GPS, the size of the screen, the mounting brackets, and the fact that it is also portable if you want it to be. I also like the voice portion of the guidance system.
Constantly LOses signal, Guidance INACCURATE, too CONFUSING

Summary: I bought this product becaue it was CHEAP. FOOLISH ME!! Right from the time I was a kid, I'd hear people say "if anything's too cheap, there's bound to be a catch". Exactly the case here and I was too lured by the low price to see reason.
Summary: JVC's website has the latest firmware and maps. Once you get these the GPS works a lot better. It takes less time locking in on a signal and the maps work well. Also you cant's beat the 5GB personal storage and the 13 million points of interest.
Summary: The GPS unit is mounted on the front windshield. 1. Without the antenna, it takes forever to get the GPS lock or no lock at all. I am talking about hours! 2. With the antenna, it works better but occasionally it does not get GPS lock for at least 30 minutes! 3.
