Summary: Great look, great features. Must have a bluetooth cell phone in order to use the Bing search, gas update & all other features, except traffic. I have yet to see anywhere in Motorola's advertising and write ups where they inform you of that. Map updates are $69.99 & up and the unit comes pre loaded with old outdated maps, forcing you to pay the $ to update. The built in 4gig memory is nice. The screen resolution is great.
Summary: Pros: 1. The screen is huge and allows you to see tons of data in one view. 2. The routing tends to work quite well. 3. The maps seem up-to-date. While it didn't route to my house properly, nothing does as I live way out in the country on dirt roads. That said, it got closer than other units I've seen. Cons: 1. The voice recognition system. First, you can't quickly navigate it as you have to wait for it to bring it up then prompt you to speak.
Summary: I have been looking to replace a two year old Garmin nuvi for a while. I hate it, horrible software, but I cannot find a new GPS that has good directions. I live in a fairly rural area and the first thing I did was set the Motonav up to take me home, it was behind horrible. While driving what I know to be the best route it wanted me to take turns, make U turns, etc. that I knew were not wise. No matter how nice everything else is, that is cause to return it.
Summary: Cons: Runs hot, would get too hot to hold Routes sometimes are wrong, simple routes SFO to ATT Park. takes 3-5 min to connect to GPS (in SAN FRANCISCO) Pro Nice design Quality weight and fit and finished Recently returned the item , was not accurate and had issues with connecting and had a issue with the bluetooth connecting 'fighting' with my Mercedes bluetooth, and would not connect numerous times I had the unit
Summary: I used the Motonav everyday for work for almost thirty days. It has potential but just to many things I didn't like. My main problem is that it's not customizable.In the end it just doesn't come close to Garmin. I have all the issues that other reviewers have already stated. I would think that Motorola would be ready to support this product when it is most important. If they can't support a product when it is new then what will it be like in the future.
Summary: Motorola promises free map update if an update is available within the first 60 days of purchase. The two units I purchased, were manufactured on February 2010. The map version is Q1 2009. MOTOROLA is promoting the Q4 version on the web-site. $79.00 is the cost of the update of which new users should be receiving at no cost at all. As a matter of fact, Motorloa does not offer any MAP updates. They may offer it in the future.
