Worst GPS

Emmanuel L., Newegg
12 October 2011
  • Summary: If i actually follow the directions given by this device, it would take me twice as long to get to my destination, if not longer! I pretty much ignore it, as it's so useless!
  • Pros: low price
  • Cons: inaccurate...it's the most important feature of a gps unit!

if you buy this you ARE the dummy!

mike w., Newegg
10 September 2011
  • Summary: my own hometown in Pennsylvania is not listed in the map software and destination choice is made by state, town, address in that order. if i had not remembered what my town USED TO BE called i could not use this to get home from anywhere. if MY town isn't in there then how many others aren't?
  • Pros: works if you are willing to put as much time inputting your destination and checking the proposed route as you will spend driving to it. will take you places you've never been before and maybe where no other human being has been either. has made me learn to take the hard-won opinions of other rev...
  • Cons: maps are dated 2008. map updates are NOT available on micro sd by mail at 36 dollars a shot on the maylong website. you cannot return this to newegg for your munny back. qwerty input is slow and misses letters typed so you have to start all over.seems to have the same processing power as a commod...

Adequate for getting you there

David T., Newegg
2 September 2011
  • Summary: You get what you pay for. If you're looking for a basic, cheap unit this is OK - just be aware that you're not getting a 5-inch, bluetooth equipped, real-time-traffic, lifetime map updates unit.
  • Pros: Cheap, small, it works. The purpose of a GPS unit is to get you where you need to go, and this unit does the job.
  • Cons: 1) The car adapter was DOA. I had an old phone adapter that I spliced to get the unit to work. 2) Battery life is poor. If you don't have a lighter plug available, this unit isn't for you. 3) No wall adapter is included. If you want to program it in your house and there isn't much battery life le...

Meh

Anton L., Newegg
2 September 2011
  • Summary: I have an older Garmin that needs the screen repaired, I should have spent the $30 I paid for this toward the $69 that Garmin wants to repair it.
  • Pros: Inexpensive, boots fast, acquires satellites fast. Has an stylus you can use for entry.
  • Cons: Cheap. Mounting bracket does not have a lock to maintain positioning. Sent first one back after two weeks, blue screen of death (it runs on Windows CE) New one has issues with the power button sticking. Speed limit database warnings have quite a few errors (alerts you when you are exceeding the s...

Worth only if replacing s/w

Dipak B., Newegg
27 August 2011
  • Summary: Not worth the price just to buy as itself but worth it if you want a cheap unit to put your own s/w on.
  • Pros: I got this since I was looking out for a new budget sd card based unit. I got this for $40 so a decent bargain. I checked the xml files inside and found replacement s/w can run from sd card, so got my tomtom navigator s/w and Im up and running :)
  • Cons: The built in s/w I found, which appears to be Destinator but with bespoke UI is rubbish, for me that is. It is easy to use but not as friendly as say tomtom. It also seems a little slow in responsiveness when using Destinator.

Don't buy this

Anonymous, Newegg
25 August 2011
  • Pros: not many
  • Cons: the maps are very limited and there is no option to download or purchase new maps from the website. It works fine if it can find the address you are looking for which is highly unlikely.

Stunned by the performance for the price

Gregory C., Newegg
19 August 2011
  • Summary: I've been searching for my first GPS for months. A few times a year I need to visit interns at several locations around the state and thought a GPS might be nice. I've always used printed out Google maps and an detail atlas of the state... its a major pain in the neck.
  • Pros: Works well even for a GPS dummy like me. The manual leaves something to be desired as it doesn't explain everything in depth (nor is there any additional help on their website). However the manual does have just enough to get you started. Overall its simple enough to figure stuff out by a little ...
  • Cons: Screen washes out in full sun at certain angles fortunately the voice intelligable, however the pronounciation of some words are really funny (example: "U.S. 131" sounds like "mucous 131". The battery doesn't last that long and the manual says its not replaceable (then they describe the replaceme...

Wow, it actually works great!

TIMothy M., Newegg
17 August 2011
  • Summary: I have always been a Garmin Nuvi guy but bought this because of the price to give away as a present. I went ahead and ordered 2 when they were on sale in case they were good and they are!
  • Pros: Nice clear voice, speed alert, plays video, photos, ebooks, clear screen with non-glare glass, touch screen works well
  • Cons: It was not free (lol) It could have a few more POI's

Bought two more

david m., Newegg
10 August 2011
  • Summary: Can't go wrong at this price and not refurbished so my CC doubles warranty.
  • Pros: Small with all accessories included. Replaced my previous LG.At sub $40 immediately after I received checked back with NEWEGG every day and it went back on sale and I snapped up two more for gifts. Hasn't been wrong so far and beats trying to read MAPQUEST directions alone.
  • Cons: None so far. and I hate to read instruction manuals.
