won't get you lost

  • Summary: I extensively used my companies pricier Garmin a few years ago, then bought this for myself after I changed jobs. Two features I really miss, and feel they are not exclusive to high end models; the old Garmin said "arriving at destination ON RIGHT" (or left). This one just says "arriving at destination", so I spend more time swiveling my head around looking. The Garmin also allowed me to program stops along the way during a route execution.

  • Summary: I use this unit on the job where I have to go to multiple addresses, and need to find the most efficient route.

This saves me so much time by preventing me from doubling back on myself, etc. You are also able to edit the saved route at any time. It also acquires satellites within seconds.

Good unit, some pros, some cons, ultimately went back to Garmin

25 July 2008
  • Summary: I read all the reviews on this unit, and decided that there were lots of reasons to try it: Smart Spelling (with limitations I mention below) Multiple point routing (i.e. Creating a trip with multiple stops) Split screen when approaching a turn Text to speech that is really easy to hear and does a good job with pronounciation Large screen Good price Ability to see time remaining to destination, estimated arrival time at destination and miles to destination (I don't think...
