Summary: This GPS was very well done by Lowrance, who has beenn a leader in GPS techknowledgy for years. This GPS can go down the road and take you to your selected deestination, or you can just take it through the 2 tracks that you used to booze cruise as a kid, or take it out on the lake with you. No matter where you go, this GPS keeps positioning, does your current GPS like Garmin do that?
Summary: It is a good (GPS) unit, and a world wide, whether you are on air or in the sea, and land, always you can point your location by this small unit, no need to buy any additional maps and details. Where ever I go, and I'm in the world. And thats why I wanted it.
Summary: I love the size. It's small, so it doesn't distort or distract your view of the road. It also gives audio directions so that you don't have to stare at the unit while trying to drive. I wish it had come with an AC adapter, but it did come with a car charger. I decided to buy this item because although it was used it appeared to be in great condition -- which it was. It's accurate, compact, and user friendly -- everything that an automotive GPS unit should be!!!
Summary: This is my 3rd (and least expensive) automobile GPS. It is by far the best. On a recent trip a reunion group was given written directions to a classmate's home in a gated, remote location. Many lost their way. I entered the address, ignored the written instructions, and was led flawlessly through complex turns to the location. The touch-screen operation (no push buttons!) is a real plus and the programmable SD card data storage promises a long up-to-date life.
Summary: Bought this unit at a Wholesale Distributor for $169.00, got more than I think I paid for. Unit comes fully charged which is wonderful, when you want to play with your new toy. I did not have any problems with the slow Satellite Acquisition here in Phoenix. Although the Unit does not speak the street names, this may not be so bad for barely unpronouncable street names anyway.
Summary: I have read previous reviews about this unit. However, I have mixed feelings about the issues with the signal acquiring time too slow, and puny CPU when calculating routes. Well, I purchased the unit for my wife's car, because the built in NAV for my car is very useful. We use my wife's car whenever we go for a long distance trip with the kids. So, I thought a portable NAV should be feasible in term of costing.
very nicely done with the important detalis included

Summary: We enjoyed the convenience of traveling with our Roadmate 500. When you arrive in a new city somewhere, you are tired and unfamiliar and no matter how much you love each other, getting lost on the way to the hotel is good for some cranky exchange. The 500 is obsolete as far as European maps are concerned so with an upcoming 3 weeks in Italy, it was time to see how far the new portables have come. My Lexus GX is disappointing and ridiculously expensive for what you get.
Summary: I recently purchased this item from Amazon after an extensive search and a ton of comparison shopping. I'd have to say that I'm amazed at how easy it was to figure out the basic functions. I was able to take the unit out of the box, mount it to my windshield using the very convienent suction-mount that was included, and find directions to a nearby atm machine, a fast food restaraunt, and then back home. This whole ordeal took about 2 minutes.
