Summary: I have had this unit for three years. When going to an address it would do a good job of giving me the best route. When entering addresses, it was not at all intuitive. It could not seem to find many of the addresses I entered. While entering addresses, I would have to press a letter more than once to get it to register. This became worse with time. The unit's power button did not always work. I would have to unplug it from it's power source to shut it down.
Summary: ok so right out of the box it didn't work. i dunno if this is an isolated thing, but the first time i calculated a route it gave me a route that took 1400 miles to go what usually takes me 40 miles...ya a difference of over a thousand miles....told me it would take me days to go what usually takes me less than an hour...after that it just stops working all together and now iv got a blank screen with an arrow on it..it doesnt give me any menus or maps..
Summary: Nice unit for a car, but it won't work on a bike. A little slow, but not bad especially for that price. I bought one for my motorcycle, but it shut itself off within 15 minutes. I called Lowrance and they thought it was a battery problem, so I sent it back (Amazon was amazingly cooperative; Great Customer service!!!). I tested the new one in my truck and it worked great, but 10 minutes in the motorcycle mount and it shut down again.
