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.
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 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.
best yet GPS for many reasons they all should take note

Summary: I have had portable and in car GPS for at least 10 years going back and forth from Tomtom to Garmin to Magellan and Lexus - the Motonav is the best for these reasons 1. excellent windshield mounting system - it stays put not like the others that fall off or vibrate or flop back and forth. 2. This unit tells you what is coming up ahead - so you know in 2 miles you can get a waffle or gas or buy a car.
Summary: I strongly recommend that if your fingers are the size of a normal man that you do not purchase this device. I am currently trying to enter addresses for an upcoming trip and I am about ready to walk out to my parking lot and "CHUCK" this thing. Every other letter has to be re-entered as I keep pressing the wrong letter. I really hate this thing. I had a Magellen that I left in a rental car last month that I really liked. I will NEVER purchase another Motorola GPS.
Summary: In some ways this unit matches or bests my nuvi, but the user interface on this unit is terrible. I was clued into why when I noticed that it runs Windows CE :). There is no "back" or "escape" button anywhere and it can be a chore to figure how the heck to just get out of the menu that you are in. The volume buttons on the side was a bad idea because they are very easily triggered by accident as you are gripping the unit.
