Summary: This product works as advertised, it will give you spoken directions to the place you designate. It is small, literally fits easily in a shirt pocket, and the image is readable, "voice" is loud enough to be easily understood, and battery life is good.
Excerpt: This is a great beginner GPS with all the features you really need. It has an easy to read screen and good voice translations that are easy to hear and understand. It has good battery life with the brightness turned down. This GPS is a must when traveling to new locations.

Summary: Simple to use. Recalculates route on missed checkpoints automatically. Good audio instrucions. Easy to understand GUI, and directions. High portability. Lighter charger makes it opportune to charge when needed.
Summary: My old car ('04 Honda) had DVD-based routing system. New corporate vehicle does not. While this thing is certainly better than having to print out directions every time I travel, it is still quirky. Many times, when turned on, it shows me in my driveway...even if I'm 200 miles away from home.
Summary: Great invention fun and easy to use. The kids enjoy looking at the map and hearing the directions. Makes driving somewhere new less stressful. Word of advice, keep a map on hand. If the areas you are in are newly built (roads, communities, etc.
Summary: I have had this product for almost a month now and it has been very helpful. I waited a long time before I finally bought a GPS because I've always been good with directions, and it never bothered me to use Mapquest before going on a trip somewhere new.
