This model uses a "Key" number that needs to match the "Key" number put in the cell phone's Bluetooth option. KISS (I used number ( One ) which did the job. The unit locates itself GPS easily but since my unit tested came from Denver, it boots up thinking it is still in Denver, I am in South Carolina. No big deal! Quality?
Summary: Good for the price I paid, but lacks sophistication. Has many flaws including an awkward power button and two top-mounted zoom buttons.

I now use my Android Incredible phone with Google Maps for navigation and do not expect to ever purchase a GPS unit again. ***END OF UPDATE*** I did a lot of research before I bought this unit from Amazon.
