Useful when I crossed the country in January 2007

Daniel Casner "Planes, Trains, Automobiles...", Amazon

  • Summary: I recently had to cross the country during a long 2 week business trip. I used the MyGuide 3050 in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, New York, etc. It worked very well and I was able to get around without having to print out pages from Mapquest for every city. I feel it was a great purchase. My only complaint is that Amazon charged around $300.00. I later found it for $250.00 at Comp USA.

Very Good Low Cost GPS

Ian, Amazon

  • Summary: I have used this GPS for about a year all over the USA and many parts of Canada. It works well and has an amazing amount of info on its 1 GB SD card. Not having to download information from the computer is the way to go. There are some quirks to the unit as others have mentioned but they are not serious. If you can get the unit for a good price I would recommend going for it.

Cheap Price and It Shows in the Flaws

O. Louie, Amazon
14 June 2007
  • Summary: The MyGuide 3050 is a budget GPS and the cost cutting shows. While the unit looks nice and features are good, the errors are constant and uncorrectable. IMPORTANT: The time / date of the unit will ALWAYS reset upon turn the unit off then on again. This is a major flaw as the unit will display a Error popup message upon syncing the time/date with the GPS sats. But this error message prevents you from using NAV until you press OK.

My Guide 3050 - Lots of features, one killer flaw...

W. Marz, Amazon
27 April 2007
  • Summary: I am a GPS junkie. I own or have owned about 15 units over the last 10 years. The features of the MyGuide 3050 are excellent, based on the SiRF chipset capability. As others have pointed out, the lack of a real time clock is a killer. On power-up the unit defaults to 2 AM somewhere in Europe. This sets the screen to night time if the night screen is programmed in.
