It gets you to your destination, but must pay for extras
13 May 2013
Summary: It works. The interface is okay, though I'm partial to Garmins due to familiarity. However, the extra features like traffic info and updates aren't free. In this day and age, such features should be standard, given that stand-alone GPS navigators are losing market share to cellphones. However, because not everyone has a fancy cellphone, this is a handy device when traveling, but I'd upgrade to a better model.
Summary: It is hard to follow the video reviews, but I really love this GPS. I do not have another to compare it to as I bought this as my first because of all the features it has. Most notably for me is the Bluetooth connection with my phone, voice dialing and phone-book access. I do not have an Android or iPhone. I have an older, Windows Mobile phone and have found that often the newer electronics don't play nice with my phone!
Summary: Very good device, but the maps are very expensive to Latin America, the operating system is very nice and fast, I recommend it for people of north america or people who are willing to pay for the maps
Summary: The Motorola Motonav TN555 is attractive, compact and has lots of cool features but, compared to a basic Garmin GPS, is it really worth it? That may depend on how you feel subscribing to Motorola's GPS information service but, more importantly, on where you drive. The Motonav uses a Bluetooth connection to your cell phone to access a subscription service for some types of information.
Summary: great gps...graphics are the best on the market...voice is very loud and you can actually understand the turn by turn...just be aware that motorola doesn't have any more updates for the maps at this time...but for the money you really can't go wrong...
Summary: I purchased the Motonav TN555 because the maps were out of date on my Garmin Nuvi. Also because I had credits at Amazon, so it would reduce the price. I found the TN555 extremely difficult to use, awakward compared to my Garmin, and then I found out that the maps were actually older than on my Garmin. So I returned the TN555 it is just not user friendly. Sorry, normally I like Motorola products.
Summary: Motorolla Motonav is not a good choice for a GPS system. It is powered by Google which is great but after the trial period, you have to pay extra for the MotoExtras to get Google Search and other features such as fuel prices and red light camera stops. You have to pay extra to get updates also (like $80-$100) when updates should come standard. The battery life is poor, even when connected to an electrical power source.
Summary: Touchscreen is very responsive and easy to use, I never lose sight of the map even when I go to the menus and the Bluetooth synchronization is great so I can make calls with having to type anything in the voice recognition is great!
