Poor support

  • Summary: This unit worked fine for me, until I had a error on the screen when starting it up one day. The error was "Error Loading Title Bar Gif". I could not get that error to go away. The only way to get that error to go away and for the unit to work correctly again is to run the unit on battery power until it completely goes dead by itself. Then plug in the power supply and it will restart and the problem will go away.

Poor performer

  • Summary: I have this exact unit, it is true in giving precise directions when it’s up and running, unfortunately, it does NOT pick up the Satellite soon enough, it struggles for a long time and then it might and might not pick it up. At times I will get over half way where I am going before it picks up the Satellite, and that could be 20 to 30 miles out, this unit is great in turn by turn directions, however very, very poor Satellite on time pick up, so if you know your way at...

  • Summary: I bought this GPS unit last June. My first unit I had took 2 days to try and locate a satalite and was never successful. I sent the unit back and they sent me a new one. I have had nothing with problems with the unit. It takes a long time to find your current location. My touch screen also locks up a lot. Finally the entire lower half of my screen went out after not even having it a year. HORRIBLE GPS. Would not recommend to ANYONE.

Complete GARBAGE!!! Buy Something Else!!!

Michael Pagliara, Amazon
1 December 2006
  • Summary: Unit #1 Well to start, let me say that I bought this unit right before I went on a cross-country trip by myself. Initially, it worked great. It locked on to the signal right away and only messed up the directions twice. Then on my way home, it totally died...right in the middle of South Dakota. I made my way home to Philadelphia and sent the unit in for repair. Customer service was helpful and sent me another unit.

  • Summary: This device does many things well except one, NAVIGATE. It shows pictures very clearly, it plays music quite nicely but 9 out of 10 times it cannot get you from point A to point B without major confusion. Every negative review I have read about this device, I am afraid is true. Slow processor, unacceptably sloooow, poor maps and even worse navigating algorithms.

Great looking maps, can't find its way out of a paper bag.

R. Iser, Amazon

  • Summary: I logged 870 miles with the iway 350. 270 miles around maryland it was / is a great item. I took it on our first trip to New York and Long Island and it was terrible. The first problem occurred on the New Jersey turnpike. I was supposed to use the turnpike from start to exit 18 and at exit 4 we stopped to eat. The unit said I was off course because the rest area was 100 feet from the highway.
