Overall, good GPS

Mike S, Amazon
7 June 2013
  • Summary: Good GPS but some issues with mounting bracket. THey only provide a very large clunky bracket which tend to shake alot while driving. Don't buy the backup camera that goes with this. It doesn't have enough power to transmit without breaking up. Finally had to return GPS and backup camera.

Nice unit but struggling with the windshield mount

D Turner, Amazon
24 February 2013
  • Summary: I got what I wanted (a large display) but I am struggling to get the windshield mount to stay stuck to the windshield. Not sure what the issue is. I have the 9055-LM resting on the dash so I do not think it is a weight issue.

Not too bad

DDC, Amazon
28 September 2011
  • Summary: This is an fine GPS. Out of the box, I noticed that it acquires satellites very quickly and also re-calculates routes quickly. I had a small problem with the audio, but a call to customer service with the advice to reset the unit took care of the problem.

Big screen the only advantage, mount is flimsy, traffic directions not too good. Still prefer Garmin.

ZenWoman, Amazon

  • Summary: I used this GPS in Minnesota in conjunction with my Garmin Nuvi which I really love as it comes with lifetime maps, lane assist with junction view, spoken street names and US and Canada maps, an ability to upload POIs (points of interest), multiple point routing etc.
