Summary: I really like this unit. Car charger died after one week. A call to Motorola and a call back from Motorola and a new charger was provided. I was advised by the Motorola employee that the unit is no longer being made and thus there will be no map updates. Current map is 4qtr 2009. The unit should be good for a few years but be aware that there may be no future for this unit after that. Phone (HTC Touch Pro) synced with phone effortlessly.
Summary: The routing part is fine -- The GPS routed me easily, notified me of turns in plenty of time, and knew where I was at all times. I liked the big, clear display. If easy and dependable routing were all I wanted from this product, I would have given it 5 stars. But I chose the MotoNav among all the GPS options because of additional features that set it apart from other models -- but which did NOT work for me: Bluetooth compatibility with iPhone, contact syncing, hands-free...
Summary: So this unit is really pretty and there are so many functions that my old Garmin doesn't have, but I got a little over whelmed with them all. I can't offer too much insight into this unit, but the main issue I had was that I like to have certain things displayed on the screen while I'm driving. In this Motorola unit you can't have info like arrival time and stuff like that on the screen while you're going unless you have it take up almost have the screen.
Summary: hat is good: I like the big screen and visibility, it is much better than my TomTom Go Live 740. I lost the voice but the navigation seemed to work OK. I am going on along trip so I will find out how good it is. I will use it and my TomTom. What is bad: Motorola is not supporting this unit like they should. No map update since 2009 Q4 and this unit was released in April of this year.
Summary: I got this to compare to an older Garmin 765t unit. At first look, the screen is AMAZING. It really has the best refresh and update that I've seen in personal GPS units. The only question was that of unit usability. Since I was used to the Garmin layout, some things are almost required to be on the main nav screen when tracking a destination. Yes the screen real estate is bigger, but you still had to split the screen to see the destination ETA and other functions.

Summary: Fast satellite acquistion. Like the split screen view. excellent screen even in sunlight.Routes are just as good or better than the garmin 855t it replaces.Way better than the garmin 885t for lane guidance, voice recognition commands & traffic. Case seems very well made As soon as I received , went to site to update software and the free map update. there were 2 software updates and 1 map update to 4th qtr 2009. Updates took less than 1 hour and no problems.
Summary: I was surprised when I found this, as I didn't know Motorola made GPS units. At first glance, this thing blew me away. It is stunning to look at in comparison with other devices. It does a whole lot right, too. Unfortunately, it has major flaws that I can't simply dismiss. The Great: * Nothing compares to this display. Nothing. It is amazing. * The multifunction panel layout, with the hide feature, is extremely innovative and can be useful.
Summary: I read all the reviews, etc. Seemed like it would do a better job than any of the Garmin's that are currently available. It arrived, and I started to transfer info from its predecessor (a garmin that had sudden battery death). Ran into a big hiccup: YOU CAN'T ENTER A DESTINATION AS LAT/LONG. It will tell you lat/long on its "dashboard", but it won't let you enter one. Guess what guys, sometimes a rural address is just a lat/long.
Summary: Thanks to Amazon for a very prompt refund! In twelve years this is the only item I have ever returned to Amazon. Let's start with the headlines, the good the bad and the ugly Good: * Very good screen resolution compared to other GPS of this type * Address search is way fast - 6 seconds to calculate a coast to coast trip * Good screen brightness * Thin and light * Lots of extras, live search options, fuel prices and all else * Very good map and junction detail * Physical...
