Summary: Pros -Somewhat useful as a real-time map Cons -Touchscreen is very unresponsive, expect a 2-3 second delay on every letter/number you type. -It will not connect to a satalite unless its plugged into a cig lighter. -It drops the connection constantly and can takes 5-10min to reconnect. Good luck if it happens when you really need it. -It can't find half the places you search for (some have been there for over a century). -It picks the most retarded routes. Like hmm..
Summary: I liked the gps for all the features it brings - good colors, lane guidance, traffic service, bing search, bluetooth speaker/dialer. For most part, it does its job well as advertised, but importing contacts to the gps didn't work. Maybe my old phone didnt support the bluetooth specification for which this was possible. Bing search worked well when paired to the phone and i liked this concept.
Summary: The Montonav TN565T is great! It's different from the normal GPS, therefore, I had to read the manual. Once I got the basics down, I was amazed at all the advance features, such as voice control, blue tooth and 3D views. I use it for local and long distance travel, it provides direct routes, and I updated it using my computer. For the price and features, it was an awesome purchase!!!
Summary: Motorola Motonav TN565T 4.3 GPS NOT recommended. This GPS stops working after several months. It can not find satellite. IF it finds it, it takes more than 30 minutes. If you're driving and lost the signal you go straight to nowhere, because for sure you will get lost. Or you can pull over and wait to get the satellite signal. NOT RECOMMENDED.

Summary: I have been shopping a while for a portable GPS. Didnt want to go in dash, so I noticed this unit clearance priced at Sears..99 bucks. Hey! its got all the features of the more expensive Garmins and Tom Tom's. so I thought why not. and...when I went to the check out the salesman says its discounted down to $69. so I said "thats a good deal"!.
The update will cost you an arm and a freakin leg cause it's already old.

Summary: I was very very disappointed when I turned it on and the maps were more than a year old and the update from Motorola is $79.00. NOT FREAKIN ACCEPTABLE !I was nice to the CSR that called but this thing is not an acceptable product at any listed price if it's not up to date!
Summary: I purchased this device for my husband as a Christmas gift. Out of the box it was exciting. It is loaded with features and the viewing screen was almost twice the size of our Nuvi. Setup was easy and we plugged it in to the car and off we went. The real problem was linking it to our computer for updates. First off it isn't MAC compatible. It's a good thing we still own a PC. The interesting thing is that the PC didn't even recognize the device.
Summary: I normally hate to write negative reviews, but I'll just explain what happened to my unit and let you decide for yourself... Overall, the unit is very decent. In terms of the maps, features (Which I think in some cases might have more advantages over other brands), and google integration, I give this unit 3-4 stars. The big issue I have with the unit is with Motorola customer support.
