Summary: I will apologize for the long review to follow (I usually try to keep it to one screen). Over the past three years I have used three different GPS units from three different manufacturers. I thought a side by side comparison might be useful.
Summary: This GPS works well, although where I live doesn't have satellite coverage, so it thinks I'm home when I'm a block away. Since I KNOW where I live, that's not a problem. Many of the features on this GPS are only available when you have a smartphone, which we don't have, so the calling, and internet...
Overwhelming extra features, but missing some basic features

Summary: I bought this GPS because this was highly rate on CNET. I liked it 5inch wide cinematic display and graphics are pretty awesome. It has some cool interface with google services and it connects to your cell phone via bluetooth and does a call to get weather,fuel price updates.
Summary: Motonav is pretty great. With the 5.1 screen you can have a split screen and still see both halves pretty well. It took a little while to find a few things, like how to change the title of your favorites, but once you know them you are fine.
Summary: Ok, here are the nuts and bolts about this gps. Good: has a great screen, easy to see, bright, responsive to your touch. fast gps aquision, routing, re-routing, menus, speech input is usable you just have to learn how to talk to the device, battery operation is handy, physical buttons are handy,...
Summary: Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase. It has helped me now in many cities and is easier to follow than other GPS units I've used (and I've used all the good ones). Things I LOVE: (1) picture/colors of the location -- almost always RIGHT ON -- makes it easy to follow (2) comes up VERY quickly...
Summary: This is the 3rd unit I have purchased. Have TomTom, Magellan and now Motonav. I do like some of the features of this unit but the Map was old and did not have my 1 year old house on the map yet.
Summary: I will keep this brief. I have used Tom Toms, Garmin's and this was my first GPS from MOTO. For the price this is an excellent product. It synch's well with the Iphone. You can set it up for voice, so that you can speak directions.
