Summary: I bought this product because I love going to estate sales, garage sales, etc. and I am not always familiar with street locations. This handy GPS unit gets me there quickly and easily. It even tells me when I am exceeding the speed limit! It was a snap to set up, and the easy to follow prompts are also easy to understand. I am not an electronic whiz and I was able to start using this item with ease immeaditely.
it's great if you're in a new town and just need a little help navigating.

Summary: It is slow to load and sometimes doesn't respond when you click. I can't get the volume button to work most of the time. It saves your most recent destinations but I couldn't get the "favorites" feature to work. Also it says "keep right" instead of "take exit" or tells you to turn on a road you are already on because the name changes. sometimes it says "turn" when it should say "keep." It seems to like to take back roads instead of main roads.
Summary: The FD-220 system is functional, the satellite response could be faster. There is no menu button for quick access to the main screen, and the POI function is not easily accessible. However, it comes with a suction cup car mount, usb cable, and car-power adapter. This device is great for the novice gps user. The system calls out street names and allows the user to bypass roads if they chose.
Summary: This a nice basic and super simple GPS, and it is in the "For Dummy's" format. Has an easy to use interface, and good touchscreen, I received it without directions and was up and running no problem. The voice turn by turn is very good, volume OK, and leadtime though somewhat annoying is Great. It tells you up to .2 miles to turn. 3D feature is not as good as others, but easy to see and understand.
Summary: Easy to use but roads change 15-20% a year. The map you get is from the year the unit was built ( May be new but built several years ago ). Maylong wants $36.00 an update. Some of the GPS companies update 4 times a year.
