Summary: Malfunctioning product. I touch a button such as the first letter of a city name for navigation and it can take up to one minute for the unit to recognize the touch and respond. Any company can have a dud among its products, but getting any kind of support from the company is impossible. When I contacted them for a replacement the rep insisted I follow the de-fragging instructions she was going to send me first. She never sent them.
Summary: The price is right, for this lifetime update, accurate, and easy to read GPS. My wife is a realtor, and uses this GPS all the time. Her smartphone went through too much data, so we wanted to get a decent GPS, and this one fits the bill. We've had GPS units in the past that didn't have the lifetime updates, and they've ended up in a drawer, since roads are changed or completed as the area around us grows.
utilitarian not elegant. best for budget minded users.

Summary: I replaced what i thought was the same model from 2011 and realized immediately that they took out features to lower the price. Intended to return it for an upgrade but instead accommodated my expectations to the lower quality and am using it daily during my work as a home health worker. PROS: clear view of screen, ideal size for my dashboard (not too big). CONS: 1. much reduced quality of speaker/voice from older model: tinny and more robotic.
Summary: I purchased this to replace a very old Magellan that i couldn't update. I have used it once and was amazed at how much more it does...I was warned of speed cameras before I got to them, which though unneeded was good to hear. I drove into Chicago with my granddaughter and the instructions were very precise. As a person who will go anywhere any time anyone needs me, I will get a great amount of use from this.
Summary: I've had a Magellan for years now; it was my first GPS. After trying a Garmin, which was horrendous, we tried this one. It would have been good had the speaker not been blown - we could hardly understand her because of the fuzzy quality. It also had a tendency to flip from night to day to night within a few minutes when it was dark. Maybe we got a bad one, but we sent it back. I don't know what to try now.
Summary: I find the device is very nice in that it tells you a landmark near where you turn. I find it slow when I try to enter an address and I find streets, Del Mar in San Clemente, CA for instance. I have mixed feelings. I've updated the device weekly since getting it so I can not explain major streets missing.
